Hi, I’m Adele McCarthy-Watson. I have worked with in the Dance and Events Industry most of my working life. After the birth of my first Child, I became obsessed with documenting her every move. I was that mum that took pictures on my phone of everything! By my third child I was ready to move on, I wanted more than just my mobile pictures. I would spend hours loving photographers on Instagram, watching lifestyle photographers at work documenting lives. I have always been a people watcher, fascinated with humans and the world we live. My favourite photography style is documentary. So that was it, I decided to take a chance. I would go back to college and learn a life long passion, Photography. I brought my first Cannon, a milestone I hold dear to my heart.
"I have always been a people watcher, fascinated with humans and the world we live"
"If its both terrifying and amazing, then you should definitely pursue it"
I was sad to wave college goodbye, I loved learning and felt almost not ready to put on my big girl pants and take that leap into the big bad world, but I did and here we are. Who’s that wise one that said ‘In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take! Well ‘sing it’ because they are so right!
Someone wise once told me, if its both terrifying and amazing, then you should definitely pursue it. When I pick up a camera I get that rush. I love people, I love watching stories, I love memories. I’m just a big romantic.
Stories are a communal currency of humanity. I want to tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose, I want to document life in the midst of living it. Life moves too fast, freeze framing that moment for eternity is such a privilege, I am so blessed.
"Life moves too fast, freeze-framing that moment for eternity is such a privilege"
This has been my story,
I am so excited to tell yours.
