// Changes //

I have forever been moved by dark, dramatic imagery. The kind of artistic portraiture that clings to your skin, gives you chills and butterflies and such.
Eerie, chaotic, tender, heart wrenching.
Something about the stillness, the soft panic, the voice it gives just engulfs me in a funnel cloud of emotion. Whirling my thoughts, feelings, interpretations around savagely. I feel that over the past year or so, I have been missing that. I miss seeing it in others’ work, and I desperately miss experiencing it in my own. This week marks 5 years since I began this journey as a photographer. I have been so blessed to be able to do this full time for 3 and a half years, but of course, there is always more to look forward to and ways to improve. 2014 has been one of my busiest years, of which I am SOOO very grateful, but that’s not how I want to measure my success. Numbers. Dollars. Likes on my Facebook Page.
No, no.
So I’m welcoming and truly embracing some serious CHANGES ’round here.
I want to work smarter, not harder, really dive deep into more personal work, and take on commissions that put a knot of joy in my gut, that make my heart literally ache with elation and truth. I need to feel it in my bones again.
More intimacy. More story.
More humans showing me what’s real from the dirt up.
Nothing generic or average, only what’s passionate and raw. THAT is what I’m about. Bring THAT to my doorstep, Universe!

Bigger announcements are coming.
Soon, soon.
Changes are being made, ideas are flowing, plans are forming.
Here’s to moving forward through these waters of business, life, love and art.
