Happy New Year everyone!!! Please bare with me a few moments while I speak from the heart….
My heart has been very heavy lately. I find it hard for me to express myself sometimes in words. I either don’t know what to say or I’m too scared to say it. I have been dealing with some health issues lately and it has really started to wear on me. I feel overwhelmed with everyday tasks and find myself extremely emotional. I am emotional to begin with but I have been seriously OVER the edge! Feeling lost and adrift. Trying to find my place and where I fit in. Deciding where I want my photography journey to take me and my personal life for that matter. Trying to be everything to everybody and at some moments feeling like I just can’t do it! Then I sit down I look at my images and breathe them in. I often go to Flickr or Pinterest or even go to other photographer that I get inspiration from. I could sit at my computer for hours just look and admire all the wonderful photography that is out there!! It’s what keeps me going some days! I always feel good when a new year starts as I can start fresh and get a head start on things. And this year is no different! While talking to a dear dear friend Sarah Henderson, she was tying to think of good words to help explain or express our photography journey and Grow is what she came up with, I thought it was fabulous! We all need to grow, to…learn, explore, bloom, ect…the list goes on! So one of my goals for 2011 is to grow and bloom into the photographer that I aspire to be. And of course in my personal life as well. There are many things I need to grow in that department as well, lol! And I can only hope that I start feeling better and becoming the person who I want to be. Another goal for this year is to try and challenge myself on this blog. Express myself more in words and photography of course. One thing that I think is so important is for clients, is to really get to know who you are. To have a sense of you before they ever meet you. And I have not been good at that at all. I thought if I open up more and talk more about my personal life I can connect more on a personal level. Along with these changes and goals I am going to be re-doing my entire blog and logo/look. I know that it was just a short time ago that I did this, but it’s jut not me anymore. So with that being said you are going to be seeing many changes over the next few weeks. My blog will become one, there will be no more website. I will be only using my site for proofing and that is it. Everything else will be here, a one stop shop! And I couldn’t be more excited! If you are still following along, I am happy :) !!! Stay tuned as this year is going to be fabulous!
On another quick note: I want to thank all of my 2010 clients! I enjoyed working with every single one of you and I hope to see you all again!!! (SOON) :)
Here are a couple of quotes that I thought would be perfect for this post:
