It's a New Year and I am reaching for the stars!
Happy 2016 everyone!! I hope your year will be full of joy, fun, family and love!!!
I am so looking forward to this year! As most of you know at the end of last year I made the announcement that I would no longer be offering family, newborn etc sessions ( besides my fundraisers that I do every year ) that I am now a full-time Fine Art Photographer! It was a long road to get here, but I need to be true to myself.
One of the reasons for all the changes is my family, I have missed out on so many things because I was constantly working, days, evening, every weekend and it was so unfair to them and myself, this year is going to be fantastic!! This is my # 1 resolution!
I wanted to share some insight to my most recent image that I created called Incomplete. I start with just an image of the trees, that I took in my front yard from there it took off. This image was over 8 hours of editing, lots of love went into like all of my images, but it was as struggle to make the image that I had in my head for about 6 months come to life, there was one point when I thought to myself " I can't create this, it's just not going to work" But I kept at it, because even if I had a little doubt in my mind, in my heart I knew that it could be done.
This image comes before my "nest" image, I wanted to show what a struggle life can be, you feel incomplete a lot of the time, trying to piece it all together, maybe you feel like giving up or you just can't do it, but you push on and then......
You become content, maybe even complete and happy with your life, the direction it is headed and that is what this image represents to me.
I am very nervous about how this year will go, but at the same time I am very happy and content, even feel complete. I can't wait to see what this year brings me and my family, as well as my friends and clients!! It's going to be a great one!!!
What are some of your resolutions for this year? I would love to hear from you =)
