Kathy of KG Ledbetter Photography chose the theme Shadows for the month of March and we had an amazing response.  Out of all of the Facebook and Instragram images Kathy chose our banner image submitted by Jordan Voigt Photography.   I connected with Jordan to learn a little bit more about her.

 

Tell us a bit about yourself?  and  Are you a hobbyist or a pro?

Hi, I’m Jordan! I am a hobbyist photographer who appreciates all things in the creative industry. Born and raised in South Georgia, married to my high school sweetheart. We have two beautiful little girls and expecting a baby boy this summer. As long as I can remember I have looked at things differently and always had a camera in my hand. I enjoy documenting the beauty in the everyday.

My husband is a pilot so our whole family has developed a love for airplanes.  I took this image at a fly-in recently.  We sat under the wing and ate lunch as the planes went by.  I just adore everything about this one!

 

Tell us a bit about your photography gear.  What is the lens do you not have but you desire to have the most?

Currently in my camera bag I have a Canon 6D, Sigma Art 35mm 1.4 and Canon 50mm 1.4 lens. I am hoping to add the Canon 15mm fisheye lens to by bag soon!

Oh the sunflares!,  I try to push myself and capture our ordinary moments in extraordinary ways.  I love looking at things differently that might normally get passed over.

 

How did your journey to be a photographer happen?

My journey as a photographer began very early when I was a child, even when all I had was a disposable camera! I have always taken pictures and documented.

Self portraits are like therapy to me.  If I am ever going through a creative rut, I know what will help pull me out.

 

 Who inspires you?

Oh where do I begin? I get inspiration from everywhere! There are so many incredible creatives out there that blow my mind everyday! A lot of my inspiration comes from my family and capturing our story.

It is very important to me that everyone gets in the frame.  I want our story to be documented honestly.  We were there too!

 

What advice would you share to the aspirants in this field?

I would say never give up and just keep shooting. Being a creative has MANY highs and lows. You will question yourself at  times and go through ruts, but the highs make it all worth it. Everyone is on a different journey and never compare yours to someone else.

Reflections and Black and Whites get me every time!

 

 One thing that you have learnt as a photographer over the years?

Sometimes you need to put the camera down and just enjoy the moment. You can get so wrapped up in trying to get the perfect shot and miss what is really happening!

It’s spring time here.  Most of our afternoons look like this.  I love the light and movement in this capture.
