Hi there! DLP was started from my ever constant love and passion for photography. From the first time I got my hands on a camera–this cheap, plastic thing I won as a prize–I’ve always been fascinated with capturing what you see on paper. Every time I see something beautiful, something that takes my breath away, my soul yearns for a camera so that I might have proof that moment existed.
…I know, it sounds dramatic, but that’s the only way to describe the intense feeling I get.
Dulce Life Photography is named, in part, after a beloved cat (who was not sweet at all, despite appearances, and did not live up to his name most of the time). It might sound silly, but the day he came into my life was the day I discovered I could love in a way I never had before. I took thousands of pictures, but didn’t fully appreciate just how important photography is until he passed away. Suddenly, all my photographs weren’t just cute pictures for me to randomly pull out on my phone and force my husband to look at. Instead, they became one of my most important possessions, reminding me of a time I’ll never get back. Portraits of him are scattered around our home, and they’re backed up on multiple hard drives. This is why I believe in documenting important moments of life, especially those “sweet” ones. After all, your photographs often remain the only proof of an unforgettable time.
