The quiet call of the soul…

Yes, I have been quiet. But it’s not because I haven’t been spending every day photographing or editing or creating a photo product. It’s more because I have been wanting to sit with myself more, to listen to the quiet voice of my soul, to recalibrate, to recenter, to re-search for the meaning behind what I do.

In the days and nights that have passed since my last blog entry I have asked myself the questions that every artist and every business person asks at some point. Where do I go from here? How can I put more of the real me in what I do? How can I put purpose and passion into every day, every photo, every wedding I photograph.

Some answers come quickly in life, like that instant you see the face of a man or woman you know you will love for a very long time. The questions pertaining to my heart, did not. The question of how I can put more of my heart into my business took it’s time. There was a healing of the heart that was necessary first, a surrender to the ever changing waves of life, a letting go of what could have been if…

“You will continue with your wedding photography”, said my heart after a while…”you will turn it into a more meaningful art, you will slow down and you will FEEL every click and every shutter movement, and you will share with your photography your love, and your vision, and your wisdom”.

And that is what I shall do…that is what I am here to tell you about. Expect to see more artful images, expect to see some simplicity, and purity and a lot more focus on the depth that love brings with it in our bones. Expect to read about the lessons my soul and my work continues to teach me about. I am here. I am back. And I have re-opened my heart to let pour through it the poetry I feel in the presence of love.
