It’s tough being a professional photographer all the time. The pressure.
Sometimes I just want to take a picture on my iPhone like a normal person. And so I do, because I do whatever I want. But then I'm like.. this is not professional photography, I CAN SHOW THIS TO NO ONE! I want people to think when I breathe on the camera, magic comes out. Magic breath. Yeah.
So, I have an Insta for these personal not magic breath moments & I have an Insta for professional slash magical breath photos. Cool, right?
But then why do I feel so scheezy?! Why do I feel like I'm hiding something?
I don't really know why especially considering that my personal account is not hidden, and that anyone can see the adorable freaking photos of #asiaandthebeard and #beau_thomas_gene aka BEST BABY EVER and girls nights photos and the rest of my life that isn't business related.
Wait, I have a life outside of my business? *GASP*
I know, it's hard to believe, but my Instas are proof that I can (kinda) keep them separate like a normal healthy human being. So, now I've decided that my @asiacroson is for photos that are fabulous for memories (and fabulous because it’s me & my friends/family and we are totally fabulous), but maybe not fabulous for “Look at me I’m a professional photographer!” status.
I made the change a while ago to only put profesh pics on @asiacrosonphotography, which has really pushed me to take professional photos if it's something I want to share with my ACP audience (like I want to tell you about my trip to San Fran! So we took profesh photos there instead of just posting a selfie by the Golden Gate Bridge.)
It's been a super fun change, and I love that you guys are right there along with me!
I have nothing to hide, but if you felt like I was leading a double life, you may be right. Professional photographer by day and night, normal person by day and night. It’s a double, simultaneous, beautiful life.
Just in case you wanted to peek into the differences, here we go:
You are more than welcome to befriend me on both accounts! We can be friends & we can be, like, friends friends, too! (In like a not creepy way?)
Tons of love,
p.s. Just FYI, if I did live a double life, my other name would be Mercedes Young.
