I was asked a lot why I was doing this shoot. I don’t really have an answer other than why not? Haha…I thought it would be pretty and fun to create with some friends. Plus it gives me a chance to play and have fun with absolutely no agenda. On a wedding day its a tight schedule made up of so much joy and interaction with my clients…I adore it. I produce images that I know my client will want on their wall of their loved ones. There is pressure in that and its good. But sometimes as an artist you need to step away from the demands of everyone around you and just create for the sole purpose of dreaming and having fun…playing with that pretty light I so love to play with.
Don’t be distracted by what others are creating around you. Sometimes you become so scared to try things because you’re afraid to fail. Or you’re afraid you won’t be as good as so and so. Comparison IS the thief of Joy. So dream those dreams…create things because it lights you up and who cares if NO one sees it.
Thank you to my friend Cheryl, Becky, Devin, Aaron and Jon. Cheryl your beautiful floral creations always inspire me! You have such a talent and I’m so grateful for your generosity. Thank you for the extra arrangement for my home too! Becky, you took something I pinned for hair and makeup with Devin and made it your own. I love that I get to see you on the regular and seeing your smiling happy face always brings a smile back to mine. Devin…AHH, Devin…THANK YOU! For hiking in a mile to this gorgeous spot…for freezing in this dress. And twirling and laughing with me and just enjoying a beautiful day on the mountain. To Aaron and Jon, thank you for hiking in with us and carrying ALL of our stuff. That made the hike in less stressful haha.
Anyway, here are a few of my favorites from that windy sunny day!
