Hard to believe that on 5th March, 4 years ago, thanks to an awesome web designer and a good friend my new website went live. That day continued a journey, or maybe it started a new one. Since March 2013 I got outside my comfort zone and regularly wrote about my experiences, my thoughts, the wonderful people I meet though my photos and in extension my life, that is until 2016.
So …. What happened to the crazy girl who would do anything for a photo like standing in the middle of the road, get chased down by ladies with brooms, whatever it took to always get THAT photo. What happened to the person who was pushing the limits of imagination all with the same purpose of creating something of beauty?
For the last year or so it feels like someone has flicked a switch or locked the door and hid the key. I feel like I have been treading water, using lots of energy but somehow not moving forward or moving in any direction, just standing still.
Don’t get me wrong there is still ideas and plans but it’s a little hazy in the brain. So what is the answer? Has the crazy women gone forever? I certainly hope not. For me the key to pushing ahead is (a) to surround myself with positive creative people and (b) and maybe more importantly take the time within to evaluate what matters, what is important, to find my way back to my why and just keep following the path ahead.
I am happy to say that I am blessed over the last 12 months to still be shooting glamour portraits for some amazingly talented women. After all this time it is still a privilege to meet, photograph and be able to show these women just how beautiful they are, both inside and outside. Stay tuned, those I have met, that will allow me to share their stories and photos, blogs will come this year.
Today I am devoting some time to get back to basics of photography as well as sitting down and writing. It’s the first step back to reconnection and hope that my followers will enjoy as my blogs become more regular each Friday again.
Until next week.
