Ok, confession time: I am camera shy. A little. A lot. There is something that freezes up inside me when a camera is around. All those ridiculous insecurities bubble up and I freak out internally. What!? It's the truth! As a result there is a limited record of me, anywhere. Yes: I realize this is a sort of oxymoron being a PHOTOGRAPHER.
I just feel so much happier BEHIND the camera. It's super important for me to make the person on the other side of it forget there is a camera between us, just have fun and relax. It makes me so happy when I can create that natural, unposed photo...a little artistic endorphin rush! Ahhhh. I just love it. It is freedom for me.
I see these people who post "selfies" all the time, and I just want you to know that I am genuinely envious of you: your confidence, your beauty, your lovely self. I adore it, and want more of it.
As for me, I am working on it.
Taking photos is just one of the ways I can express my creativity and appreciation for unique beauty. I am a visual person, and I truly enjoy opening my eyes and capturing life. It is all art, and I revel in its creation. This is where I post my inspirations, ideas and overall brainstorms that fuel my creativity.
