Since the day I stepped into Ezell’s Studios one of the words that has been constantly thrown around is “Passion.” I hear it a lot from our photographers, but I also see it a lot in the photos that are hanging on our gallery walls.
Whether it’s a passion for a sport, an instrument, modeling, or even just a passion for taking beautiful photos. Our clients have passions, and it is such a humbling experience when they choose this studio to help capture their passion in a photograph.
My first experience with this topic happened in December of 2013. I came into work and checked our calendar for the day’s assignments. In the 4:30 slot for Joseph (one of our talented photographers) was the name Victoria Johnson.
Later that day Joseph told me she was coming in to have photos made for her portfolio, that she was a ballerina. I was instantly excited about this! It was one of my first few weeks here at Ezell’s and the lights, cameras, and backdrops were all still so fresh and new to me.
Victoria and her mother Debbie arrived at the studio and we immediately got to work. To meet Victoria is to like her. She is a beautiful young lady with an easy laugh and apparently amazing work ethic. As she warmed up her mother told me that she had an audition coming up in January for one of the top three schools in the nation for ballet.
If we weren’t already impressed with Victoria, we were for sure impressed now. She and her mother had pose after pose picked out for her to do as part of her portfolio. You could tell by the look on her face and the amount of concentration she had during our session that ballet was definitely Victoria’s passion.
Yesterday, Victoria’s mother Debbie came to pick up her photos and told me they would be flying out today for her big audition. She also told me Victoria landed the lead role in Cinderella for The Covington Regional Ballet’s spring recital. What a confidence boost! We all have our fingers crossed for Victoria as she prepares to graduate high school and make her way into college. We just know she will do amazing things.
Stay tuned for more on Victoria’s journey and to hear about all the other amazing things we do here at Ezell’s Studios!
