“i am a museum full of art
but you had your eyes shut”
― Rupi Kaur, Milk and Honey
The magic that is progression.
Maybe last week, I didn’t really see any changes to my work. I thought I was producing the same photos after every session. I knew what I wanted to produce in my head, but I wasn’t seeing it in editing.
Long story short, I was in a rut.
Wind has the opportunity to completely change an image. I purposely asked Chelsea to shoot at the beach to incorporate as much wind as possible.
To my surprise, what I imagined in my head was coming to life.
The emotion, the wind swept hair, the beautiful dress. It was all hitting. It was almost like I had a checklist in my head and I was checking all the boxes. After almost every photo I would look back at my boyfriend and cheese so hard. I was so happy.
I was finally progressing, thanks to the wind and Chelsea.
Chelsea has such a natural beauty. Although she told me she was really nervous, she settled in rather quickly.
The wind took her hair and the water splashed around us. It was like a scene from a movie.
So I would like to thank Mother Nature.
Thank you for producing the wonderful phenomenon that is wind. And thank you for helping me get out of my rut. The results were stunning.

Sometimes the light and the wind all come together to make a lovely picture.
