a change of direction

Recent events have made me realise I need to spend more time with my friends and family, and I need to start taking better care of myself. I need to take on work that i really truly love, and i need to seek out and shoot creative things that make me strive to be a better photographer, and a better person. Unfortunately there is only so much of me to go around, and something had to give.

Very recently I made the decision to put a hold on wedding bookings, at least for the moment. The portrait side of the business has really started to take off, and nothing makes me happier than photographing babies and kids. So we are changing direction here a little bit.

I have had an amazing time shooting weddings, and met some wonderful people, but for the moment i feel its time to make the business really strong by concentrating all my energy on one particular area.

I still have a lot of weddings booked in for this year, and some for next year too, but I wont be taking any more bookings. I have written, deleted and rewritten this blog post dozens of times. Its a tough decision to make, and who knows what the future holds. Maybe this time next year you will see another blog post sharing the news that weddings are back on. But, for now, Skye Rocket Studio is going from 'weddings and portraits' to just 'portraits'. Wish me luck!


  1. Good luck Skye! I'm sure you will do just brilliantly with the portrait side of things!

  2. it's really great that you are putting yourself first and keeping your creativeness fresh and alive. all the best skye, we all love everything you do and i am personally looking forward to seeing some really funky portraits from you! xx

  3. it sounds like a very positive move. Good on you for taking the step.

  4. All the best with your change of direction! As long as you enjoy what you do, I certainly love what you do. Look forward to seeing more of your portraits. Good luck

  5. And thank you Justine and Katie!
