Hi there! If you don't know me my name is Macy and I am the Owner/Photographer at Memories by Macy Photography and you are reading my very first blog post! How exciting!
On my blog I will be sharing photo sessions, sneak peeks into my life, and future photo work ideas. If you have something you would like to see featured or discussed on my blog, just leave a comment or contact me. I would love to hear your ideas!
A little about me... My name, as I said above, is Macy, I'm 22 years old, and I love photography. I love it so much that I decided to make a career out of it. In just a couple short weeks I will graduate from Lansing Community College with an Associates degree in Photographic Imaging. But did you know studying photography wasn't originally on the agenda when I applied to LCC? Say what now? Yes! Originally, I was going to study Childhood Development and Early Education, because I also love small children.
Small children are hilarious with their developing personalities and bring chaos, joy, laughter, and smiles to our lives. I LOVE to capture that on camera. I enjoyed taking photos, (especially of my niece who was born when I was 16), throughout high school, but didn't really think of it as a career until I got into college. My first semester I took a couple core classes, a childhood development class, and a photography class. I liked taking pictures and thought a photography class would be fun, and it was! I learned a lot and decided halfway through my first semester that I was going to change my program of study to Photography. I have grown so much as a photographer over these last four years studying at LCC and I can't wait to continue to learn and grow while capturing life's beautiful and precious moments and turning them into lasting memories.
Remember when I said I was graduating in a couple short weeks? Well as part of my graduation with LCC, I am participating in the LCC Photography Class of 2019 Portfolio Gallery Showing. It's being held at the Robin Theatre in Lansing, Michigan on Sunday, May 5th from 1PM - 6PM. This showing gives people in our nearby communities the chance to meet me and my fellow classmates and the work we have produced as photographers. I would love to meet you and see you there! Below are a few images you can expect to see while visiting me at the showing, but don't miss out, there will be many more at the showing! Here is the facebook link to the event if you're interested!
P.S. If you visit me on show day I just might have a gift for you to use the next time you book with Memories by Macy Photography!
