I have fallen in love with photography … again!

Don't forget to share or pin this blog post so you don't lose it.

  Did I forget what I was doing in this business?  What brought me here and what makes me feel alive?  I did.  But just for a moment.  When I started out I was a photographer for the same reason many of you are today.  Because I was drawn to it.  I loved it.  Sometimes I had to drag ass to a session and then the moment I began snapping away I was alive again.  A fire within me for sure.  I always would wonder why it seemed to be such a chore to think about doing a session when I was at my best when doing them.  Unfortunately when Colorvale® came around I started taking my creativity and giving it in the form of actions rather than shooting everyday like I loved.  Yep, I love what I do, I love what I create, but had I given photography up for editing software?!  You bet your ass I did, and I can't explain why … other than I was "In Too Deep" (just watched that movie and had to throw that in there).  So from this moment on I promise to pick my camera and capture what is around me rather than sit in my office for 14 hours a day working on a computer.  I'm just not at my fullest when I am doing that. So today I decided during a very very fun morning with my girl friends, our pajamas and HEELS to pick up my camera and capture the very thing I love most … LIFE!  Welcome to my home and my happiness.
