Hard Decisions…

 

The last few weeks have been about making hard decisions.  Jae and I moved to Salem in the fall and it has been amazing living here… there is such a fantastic, supportive, creative community and we feel quite blessed to now be a part of it.  The flip side of this move is that our financial situation has changed a bit, and my business has suffered from the move.  After much thought and considering all my options, I’ve decided to go back into retail management.  April will most likely be my first month of working full time (not to count my chickens of course…)

Going back to work full time will definitely change how much time I can devote to my photography.  While I will still be taking select commissions for painterly portraits, model development sessions and head shots, I will probably have time for only a few sessions a month.  I will be focusing most of my creative energy on my conceptual Archetype Project and will be devoting the majority of my time to continue to develop this work.

I have a few amazing projects in the works, with some fantastic models, designers, hair stylists and makeup artists and I can’t wait to share in the coming months.  Thanks to everyone for your continuing support!!

I’m going to finish off this post with one of my favorite shots from a portrait session I did recently with Christopher Allen, from Manners Supply Co.

Happy International Women’s Day!

      Today is International Women’s Day, which intends to bring awareness to the oppression and inequality of women globally.  Personally, I think it is insane that in a world which is so advanced in so many ways, that antiquated belief systems which support the idea that any human being is lesser than any other still exist.

      As women especially,  it is important that we support each other, and help lift each other up.  It is always my greatest joy to create images which show the immense variety of beauty that exists in the universe, and some of my favorite sessions are portraits that reveals both inner and outer beauty for a woman to see in herself.  Celebrate and share yourself, your inner and outer beauty, for all the world to see.

You are amazing and you deserve for everyone to see it.
