So, I've been wanting to get this ball rolling for a while, and I think this shoot was the beginning of my progress. I don't know about you guys, but I'm always feeling stuck between my pipe dreams and the "real world". I have this voice inside of me that tells me to create and create simply, and I know that won't make me millions, but I feel so drawn to that concept. Then, I think of internships, job applications, emails, and I feel like I'm unconsciously beginning my journey up this corporate ladder, and even though I can tell it's not where I'm supposed to be, the world seems to shove it in front of me. I often feel like maybe I'm crazy, because I don't have the best gear, the best photos, the most polished aesthetic, and honestly, I really haven't even found my voice yet, but I still hold onto this thing that I feel called to.
That being said, I've been blessed with only a few really really good friends in life, and it's rare I find new friends. Amelia and I met for about 7 minutes (lol) before she went to live in Switzerland for four months, but when she came back, I knew she would be a gem in my life. Here's to many more early morning shoots, good conversations, and creating whatever feels good.
