This year I am trying to grow in as many ways as I can.
Growing hurts I tell you.
This week I have felt those growing pains, but have managed to trudge through,
and pick up my camera even when I don’t feel like creating.
Like last night…
If you know me and my work, I am a sunbeam chaser.
I love using nature as my backdrop and being outdoors in my sessions.
Living in New England has given me the chance to think about life “inside the box”
~inside my home
Last night I decided to do the complete opposite of what I typically do…
Rather than use sun, I waited until it was completely dark.
Rather than be outdoors , I was indoors.
Rather than use nature, I was in my son’s bedroom.
I used no flash, just the available light- and half of the session was done in the dark with just a flashlight!
This was such a great exercise because I was able to step outside of my comfort zone.
I was grumpy before the session- feeling insecure and tired (it was bedtime!)
But by the end of the session I felt cheerful and happy and empowered.
I am so glad I tried something completely new!
All of you creatives out there, I recommend stepping out of your comfort zone!
Here is our bedtime story…
