Today I am thankful that my job allows me to be creative and choose the direction I want my work to go - I honestly couldn't function without this freedom.
When I have an idea and free moment I do it. Take this image for example. I LOVE it :) Yes, it is my sweet Fable, she usually gets the first round of my crazy ideas since she is here with us everyday. I did wrap her up in fabric, crazy twist her hair up and shoot in a way I've never shot before (can't tell you that part:)
Sometimes, photography can be TOO PROPPED OUT. I personally and creatively have the desire to go back to what is most important to me - my subject and my ability to photograph them. When I look at this image of Fable - I think - wow - look how much she has grown up over the past year and then I think - it looks just like the personality that she exudes.
It tells her story. Not the story of the outfit, the background, or the prop - it tells the story of Fable.That is timeless. It will never go out of style and I will never get tired of staring at it.
Thankful that I want to push myself artistically every day and super thankful that our family of ARPclients allows me to do that for them :)
