Oh wow, it’s been a while since I’ve posted and I’ve honestly missed it. It’s kind of like a journal for me. This year I’m going to make efforts to post more. I feel like this is my place for sharing not just my photography business images but also my life it general. My photography is shaped by who I am and what I feel so I think it’s only fitting to share me, my life, my trials, my journeys, my goals, my failures, my happiness and my sadness here. My photography is created from emotions that are real, gritty and raw moments in every day life. And that translates into art…into my art. Anyway, I just thought I’d warn you, ha.
Last night was pretty chilly here in the desert but the sun was gorgeous so I took Brielle out for some sample shots of light and different properties of light for my ‘Finding the Light’ workshop in Atlanta next week. While I was there I coupled the shoot with a commercial session for an amazing designer I’ve been working with for years – FaithWorks4U. As I was getting Brielle ready in my bathroom she saw the dress hanging on my closet door and asked excitedly if she could wear her gold sparkly shoes, my gold headband and my gold earrings. How could I say no, she was styling herself and doing a great job at it. Commercial shoots never get old for her, especially if I allow her to be a part of the styling. Then she spotted a new purchase I made at Sephora. It was gold glitter. She excitedly begged for me to put some on her eyes. ”It’ll go perfectly with my sparkly shoes Momma’. Again, I was swayed and dabbed a little lightly near her eyes. After she put on the dress, she looked in the mirror and told me with a smile on her face that she felt beautiful. I always want her to feel beautiful. Not necessarily physically but with the person she is. With who she is on the inside and how she lives her life and projects her spirit onto others. I truly hope my little girl always feels beautiful.
