Because I love it

October 15, 2013  •  3 Comments

I have been going through what some might call a difficult transition. While doing that, I feel that I have been so busy worrying about everything else that I have been neglecting my work. Last week, I decided that I would increase my knowledge of photography and watch a Creative Live session. There are always several different lessons going on, but I was captivated by Lara Jade and Sue Bryce's work. 

I was so incredibly impressed by them, and I am not just talking about their work. The things that they discussed in the lessons were incredibly inspiring to me. For those who have been living in a cave or under a rock, everyone is a photographer now, and sometimes that can be really intimidating. I am not much of a fighter by nature, rather an observer. I suppose, that is one reason that I enjoy photography so much. Being this way can be difficult in such a saturated field. While watching and listening to Lara and Sue, I felt something incredible--hope. Watching them and hearing their encouraging words made my heart feel so good. I don't know if I have really felt that in a long time. The feeling of being truly inspired and the feeling that I am doing something that I am meant to do. 

I really have not been a photographer for very long, approximately a year and a half, and everything has been self-taught. I feel that being a photographer has taught me so incredibly much! I have learned great values on life while building my business. It is truly a test to see how much I really think that I am worth, and how much I am willing to work to continue to learn more and more about photography. 

Since watching Lara and Sue, I have decided that I would venture into more creative work and that I would truly let my emotions take over my art. I will of course be doing the same family, seniors, and weddings, but be expecting to see more of my creative side too.

Here is a self-portrait and an example of the direction that I would like my work to go in.
