Life has changed for our family over the last eighteen months, more than I would have thought two years ago. Photographically speaking, my website is in the middle of change, my session load has changed, I'm about to re-brand and I hope one could say that my photography style has changed. Nothing is quite where I want it and that's ok because the things that keep me from getting all the way there are the important things. Things like my kids, my husband, my other job and running. All in due time, a process. I'm happy to be in the process. My personal life is also changing, back to the working outside the home, running again, and moving salons (again). I don't mind change but it sure will be nice to settle into a routine that lasts a bit longer.
I've joined a wonderful group of women who are all in different seasons of their photography journey as well. I don't get to spend as much time with these online friends as I'd like to but once a month we are coming together to share our journey and what inspires us. We are a wide gamut and I love that. I love being around encouraging and supportive people in real life and online.
This month the theme is "Orange". For some reason I find mixing color and photography challenging. I almost skipped again this month but I am determined to get off the ground and just do it. There is little "orange" in these photos, one small orange pumpkin and little creativity in lining kids up for a traditional Halloween photo but with all these changes, they are, and this is my one constant. Their joy, inviting others to join and capturing the simple. My life is making circles to my past just as much as my son's Halloween costume. A failed mummy costume turned a funny joke via a costume he wore many years ago. Circles. Time repeating, with new twists.
Artists Inspired Blog Circle is made up of an exceptionally talented group of photographers from all walks of life, from all over the world. They are wives, mothers, friends, daughters and visual storytellers who draw from their own experiences to create art that is inspiring, unique, beautiful and thought-provoking.
