Last night I got caught in a 3am wormhole.. I looked at this old website. I saw families and strangers who I met by happenstance.. the flood of joy I had sharing these experiences - Then the overwhelming feeling of why did I let my love of photography slide? What got in the way? Somedays I blame it on the mom busy, the flood of photographers that came with the digital revolution, Instagram, the joy becoming a JOB - but let's get real. I can boil it down to the insecurity of the artist. The safety of not having to "feeling the feels". The loss of the artist that lives inside of me. I tried to make it easy on myself during the peak of my "busy" season to stop posting and silently fade into the shadows only keeping the regulars (who were thankfully diehards - If it were not for you my creative heart would have for sure been set into stone). With only one toe in - it felt safe, less demanding and on my terms. The performance anxiety left the stage - but you know what else left - the artist.
So this is my fall challenge - not gonna lie - it is TOTALLY motivated by braces - and yeah Christmas. It is the - pick up your new camera - and get to work - or find another part time job - and just kill the creative soul already!
But if this putting myself out there works - and it gets me shooting again and feeling the creative joy - then it's worth it ya?
