Back to School

 It has been an unbelievable year for everyone. This could well be the first time in history that the entire planet is experiencing a similar event. We are so lucky to live in a small place that is beautiful and has managed well so we have suffered far less than many, but it has still been hard. Between April and August I would normally shoot somewhere around 100 portrait sessions and 20 weddings. This year I have only photographed one tiny wedding and about a dozen portraits, all of which have been in the last few weeks.

I think that actually, I really needed the break. I was tired, and truthfully, a little bored. But now, I absolutely love taking pictures again and capturing the hugs and gentle laughter seems more important than it ever did before. So as awful and scary as this year has been, I am grateful for the way the hiatus has renewed my love of taking photographs. 

I will post a few shoots over the coming weeks, but here are a few from a back to school shoot that I am particularly happy with. These three are beautiful, so it was not difficult to capture some lovely images...

Doorstep Portraits

It is truly an unbelievable time. I still am in a state hovering between all stages of grief - denial,  anger, bargaining and depression. Acceptance is a really long way off. But life does go on, and I felt it was important for me to try to offer to capture these small moments of joy for as long as possible. For the last week I have visited people at home to create portraits that celebrate the love and the closeness that is still permitted. Tomorrow Bermuda, like most of the world, will go on lockdown. We will all shelter at home for 14 days and hope for the best.

I loved doing these mini sessions! If anyone would like to schedule a visit after the shelter at home period is over, email me at amandatemplebermuda@gmail.com.

Happy New Year!

I made a decision last year to do fewer blog posts to focus on getting my clients their full galleries of photos quicker. They were over the moon, but also a little sad as they missed seeing my picks. 2019 had so many wonderful shoots it was hard to choose, but here are a few of my favourites.
