I've always been the girl who feels too much. Happiness, sadness, excitement, fear...I always felt the extreme. It was all or nothing, no happy medium.
For years I thought it was a bad thing. But one day, not that long ago, I was walking the beach with my son, taking the time to just be in the moment and was completely in awe of the beauty I was surrounded with. The beach, my son playing in the water, it was an overwhelming sense of bliss. At that point I realised I was lucky.
Some people will never get to experience that feeling. They will never be able to experience the extreme emotions that I do and see the way I'm lucky to see it.
When I began to channel that into my photography my life suddenly started to make sense and as I continue my journey as a photographer all the pieces are starting to fit.
You see in my eyes, photography isn't about the camera, it's about the person. To be the best photographer I can, I have to be the best version of myself.
