You ever have one of those nights where you fall asleep—your head heavy, mind moving frantically—and then wake the next morning, somewhat groggy, but in a happier/clearer place? I'm thinking: How did I get here? I barely slept. But now, the sun is out, my coffee/water/smoothie combo is ready to consume and I am ready to take on the day.
This morning, I received an exciting email from a college friend who is starting something FABULOUS on the east coast and needs some contributors. Last week I formed new relationships with creatives in town (Bold Flourish) and began rebranding my logo/website (thanks to Freddy Design). I have used new lighting//creative techniques with local photographer, Camille Seiler—which I will feature here in this post. Thank you to my awesome model and friend, Victoria—who also has a new biz in the works.
Last week, I met a fabulous Jacksonville based photographer, Nicole from Blue Birch Photography—we will be working together this weekend at Sara & Chris' wedding. And I have to mention my AWESOME boss Lindsay Pullen at BAD GIRL BOUDOIR and all of the powerful women I have met working in that atmosphere (Amanda Hopcraft Makeup Artist & Artistry By Erin). So much POWER and CREATIVITY has entered my life in the last few months and I can't help but thank the universe, these women (and Kevin) and also myself, for taking a leap of faith.
It has always been difficult going back and forth from Vermont to Florida (both in my personal life and my business). It is just NOW that I am realizing how incredibly lucky I am to have TWO amazing homes. To have two places where my roots can grow. And, lucky for me (and other creatives that have homes in multiple places) we have the ability to connect it all in one place and one space: Here—on this crazy World Wide Web.
We really are ALL in this together, no matter what our professions and creations are/will be. I can't wait to see what is in store for ALL of us in the coming months. Until then—let's do what we do best: Connect, create and feel. The most important three words in my life right now.
Now, here's a look at an experimental shoot this past week, thanks to a new piece of reflective//awesome crystal.
