It was seriously cold the day I hooked up with jay AND audrey. Friends of friends … I was lucky to expose their love and excitement for each other through my camera :) I love showing LOVE.
They were up for anything … which is always awesome to hear. Audrey requested we meet at Whitehern Museum. Snow and stilettos … audrey ROCKED it! Then we decided to have a pint at one of their favourite spots to hang with each other after a friday night movie. Of course snapping along the way … soaking up the great colours and textures in downtown.
So after talking about their numerous adventures together, as they snuggled up to each other, I got to tell the story of a fun, loving, adventurous, GORGEOUS, couple looking so forward to their special day. AND not just in any special place …. did I mention New Orleans?
My holidays have been great. While the expectations of doing multiple tasks and projects around the house were looming over me during my week off, I took this week to really enjoy this slow quiet time. Me and my boys just enjoyed ‘being’. And together we did just that! Tomorrow I am back at the day job. Recent changes in our company, and the honesty in which the ‘big guys’ are sharing leaves no room for imagination of long term employment. So what better way then to fill my brain with inspiration instead of doom? So inspired I got. I followed my favourite photogs websites and blogs. I engaged in forums. I read. And read. And read some more. I talked my poor hubbs’ ear off about photography and what I really want this next year to look like. I made sure that every thought and image that was being absorbed into my being, was inspiring. And filled with possibilities. Fashion mags, manuals, comedy, bio’s, and a great inspiring read by Jasmine Star filled me up! I obsorbed. I couldn’t get enough. I think Exposed needs another read through :)
Welcome! If you’re reading this, my first blog post, I thank you. What better way to start the year than to reflect on the past year. 2011 has been an amazing one. I have met some super crazy loving people, that I’m so blessed and honoured to have been able to show them, how I see them. Those moments in between. The glances. The hugs. The touches. The beauty. The crazyness. But mostly, them. The way they are.
I am so looking forward to 2012. This year is my year to take my business that one step farther that fear has kept me from taking. So with the love and support of a ton of amazing clients, friends, family, and fellow photographers, I’m excited for whats to come! I’m ready to JUMP. Both feet. Full body. All heart and all soul.
