Excuse me while I kiss the sky. ~Jimi Hendrix
"Train yourself to listen to that small voice that tells us what's important and what's not."
~ Sue Grafton
Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men. ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have you... The one who turns to his friends and says, 'that's her.'”
...From one of the lovely sessions I had this fall. A good looking family, beautiful places and gorgeous light.
I came across this quote yesterday morning, and it stuck with me:
'Some people ask, “What if I haven’t found my true passion?”
It’s dangerous to think in terms of “passion” and “purpose” because they sound like such huge overwhelming ideas.
If you think love needs to look like “Romeo and Juliet”, you’ll overlook a great relationship that grows slowly.
If you think you haven’t found your passion yet, you’re probably expecting it to be overwhelming.
Instead, just notice what excites you and what scares you on a small moment-to-moment level.
If you find yourself glued to Photoshop, playing around for hours, dive in deeper. Maybe that’s your new calling.
If you keep thinking about putting on a conference or being a Hollywood screenwriter, and you find the idea terrifies but intrigues you, it’s probably a worthy endeavor for you.
You grow (and thrive!) by doing what excites you and what scares you everyday, not by trying to find your passion.'
~ Derek Sivers
Best lit room I've ever had a chance to take photographs in.
It's the model that I am keeping in mind while planning a little indoor natural light studio.
Miss Hazel. You have to check this session out ;) One of the best dressed newborns. Thanks mom!
I've always tried to have a unique prop for each one of the newborns I've photographed.
Her name inspired the little outfit I thought out and had mom knit for me.
... I love this quote: "A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on." ~Carl Sandburg
