There’s too much to try to say right now, and I don’t know where to even begin.
To say that this year has been BIG for me would still be an understatement.
What started out as a personal journey in Maui last November has helped me grow in more ways that I can really describe.
I realized that I want more for my photography. I don’t want to just get by and be busy enough to do this full time.
I realized I want to collaborate, and create, and do photography that frightens me a little.
After MTH Maui I was terrified, because I knew that this next step would mean reaching out to do a styled photo shoot – all on my own. And submit it. And be okay with whatever happened next. Risk the failure. Risk the rejection. Put myself on the line.
They say that there is power in simply voicing your desires. Just make it known to the universe.
I emailed Melanie at Jesi Haack and it was the start of something bigger and better than I could have imagined in the first place.
Doing a collaboration like this was like fresh wind into my soul.
It was so exciting to see all these vendors come together to make something beautiful, for no other reason than just for the pure joy of creating and inspiring.
Thanks for journeying with me in this process… for listening to me think out loud, for responding with your own thoughts, for your sweet encouraging comments.
I’m celebrating today – for the people God has brought into my life at just the right time – and for you all – pushing me to do more and be more.
I want to be open to whatever happens next.
Do me a favor and leave a comment on Green Wedding Shoes – the shoot is featured there today! There are so many amazing vendors that made this happen and I want them to feel the love too.
I am seriously grateful for everyone who helped make this dream a reality. I cannot thank you enough.
