'Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'
Each new trip around the sun carries with it the opportunity for reflection, a beckoning for pause. Looking back on this past year, the overarching theme was change. It brings me a whole lotta joy and peace to be able to span across a years time and know that I have grown, just maybe evolved a bit within myself. That I'm inching closer to the type of center I desire.
It's safe to say I have been itching to mix things up with my art, my site, my brand. When what you do for a living is also representative of who you are, you find things frequently shifting and stretching about, just as your own mind does. This craft of mine will always be evolving, I will always want to pull and push it in new directions. As life morphs and changes, so too will my photography. I embrace these changes. I get so stoked knowing that it will be ever unfolding, opening up new avenues to offer fresh perspectives, more truth.
It was time for this change. I am humbled to know I have room for growth, yet oh so confident knowing I am harnessing more of myself into my craft everyday. And though change is present, there are constants that will forever remain at the core of my art.
I will allllways shoot what I believe in. What resonates with my soul.
The experience and freedom to create will continually inhabit my sessions.
I will remain focused and devoted to what I feel, not just what I see.
......And so, on the dawnings of this new year, I am damn excited.
