“With all good stories there is a beginning. The beginning isn’t always the very beginning, it could just be where the story starts before it takes off”
Nothing is more rewards or therapeutic than going out on a photo journey. Being able to express myself, tell my story without words, be as creative as I want, & show others how I see the world is amazing to me. My journey started so long ago and has lead me to meet some amazing people & travel to beautiful remote places, I wouldn’t have seen otherwise.
There are a few fields in photography I love capturing, landscape & portraits are 2 of my favorites. Landscapes can bring you to a place you have never been, allowing you to travel without leaving your home. Portraits are powerful and amazing….telling a person’s story through images that highlights their personalities & showcases their uniqueness is something I absolutely love doing.
A few years ago, I had to go back to work, which was fine, especially since I found a photography job. But over time, I seemed to have lost my way, my love for the craft, & my voice. I’ve been concentrating so hard working for someone else, not being very creative (school day photography isn’t a very creative field), I forgot why I started my journey and what it has meant to me. Sure, I’ve taken pics but it hasn’t been the same. I seem to comparing myself more & more to other photographer, getting upset & depressed because my images aren’t comparing. This alone will stifle, hinder any creativity. In order to be successful at anything we do, we need to stop comparing ourselves, as it is the key to failure.
So here I am, making a place where I’m hoping to recenter myself, explore different avenues of photography, and find my voice that seemed to be lost in the chaos of life n work. By restarting my blog, I’m hoping to rekindle the love, passion, fire, creativity that I once had & gain even more….gain my voice, insight, & a community of like-minded individuals.
Here’s to new adventures….
