finding | inspiration
hopefully i’m not scaring all of you with these midnight posts on friday and saturday nights! LOL. I promise I do have a life other than sitting at home on the weekend and working!
its been a slow week, and with aric out of town this weekend i’ve had a lot of free time on my hands and i simply do not know what to do with myself! 🙂
i’ve been evaluating life in my downtime lately. and its been sweet.
with photography-i feel like its easy to get into a rut, to feel uninspired or like you are taking the exact same picture over and over again. i feel that way often. i want so badly to use my photos to inspire hope and excitement in people, and when i’m not feeling it myself-i feel like i’m letting you all down. it can be a constant battle, but as i struggle through it im learning more and more about where my inspiration comes from and frankly- it’s simple.
it’s simplicity. it’s real. it’s beauty. it’s honesty. it’s passion. it’s love.
and it’s looking for and finding those things in each new person i meet and in each new challenge i face.
tonight was the last “girls night out” with my best friend before she becomes a MRS.! she is also the bride who’s pictures i cannot share with you until after June 20th so instead enjoy some photos i snapped of her tonight while we were hanging out. i tried to edit each picture differently and never use the same action twice-i’d love to hear what you think…
*****and one last thing-i was thinking about doing a weekly…or maybe bi-weekly before and after with at least one picture and share some different steps i take to edit different pictures. several of my favorite photographers do this and i love it-so just curious if anyone would even be remotely interested!!-(leave a comment and let me know!!!) 🙂
i lied-one more last thing-seriously? tell me you cannot wait to see this beauty in her wedding gown?!?!….
