The purpose of me starting this blog was to share more of my portfolio and to let my readers in my personal space. As an introvert, this can be exceedingly difficult in both aspects. For one, I literally hate to sit down at my computer, especially when I have to go through thousands of images and try and select my favorites when I love almost all of them equally. The second reason is well...introvert lol. How much do I share? How much do I open up? What do I share? Is it too much information? Is it too little?
...and then I over analyze, and overwhelm myself and end up sharing nothing. ::SIGH::
So needless to say, trying to find the words and supporting images can be a bit much for me. All I really want to do is take amazing photos and give my clients the best part of my talent and capture their essence in photographs. That's it. Literally. But! and there is always a but - running a business comes with all kinds of bells and whistles and blogging is one of them. So, I am going to make my best effort this year to do just that.
I can start by saying that these past few months I've taken a break. I was burnt out, and nothing kills an artist more than being ovehelmed to the point of being blocked creatively. I didn't want my work to suffer so I took a step back, and took a breather.
Sometimes when I am overwhelmed with life, my batteries run on empty. It's important to make time for myself, so I recharge and rested. I started to work out, writing again, go to the coffee shop to read, spent more time with my family and friends, and I found down time to just exist in the moment. I'm happy to say I'm getting back to the old me. I recently got back behind the camera for an engagement shoot and I. HAD. A. BLAST! Stay tuned for my next blog, until then...
