Simple

At this time of year, I'm done with winter. I'm tired of the cold and standstill. Being a full time creative can be difficult when you have off seasons or months that you only have one shoot. It feels like I am not productive enough, or wasting time. As I say these things, it's usually around the time that every thing is thrown into fast forward again, and I await the simple times once more. Which I am okay with. I love exerting myself socially for a couple of days a week and then retreating to the cave to edit. I love overcoming obstacles that I don't think are possible for me. I love not clocking in every morning and watching the clock all day. I love that high after the nerves of a wedding subside and I completed it, but maybe not as much as when I hear back from a happy bride. I am such a comfort zone junkie that I never thought I would do something that scared me and continues to scare me for my career, but I love it. 
I love the simple and alone, but I can't wait to push myself. Today I am making the longest car trip by myself yet, to meet a lovely couple, gush about their wedding, and explore their city for engagement photos. I am so excited and nervous and I love it
Happy Wednesday.

  1. I love this so much! I can relate on so many levels! I have to really push myself to not be such a homebody sometimes! I always get so anxious when it's showtime, but afterwards I'm always so excited and I can't wait to do it again! <3 I hope you're having a safe trip! I can't wait to see what you capture this time!
    xo, Emma

  2. When we take a step forward in spite of our nerves, the adrenaline rush is exhilarating. 5 state long drives of nerves means the production of some amazing images. Looking forward to seeing them!

  3. I was surprised at how many emotions photographing brings out, but it furthers the feeling of accomplishment when something is complete. xx
