high on life

2.02.2013

i've been riding through life on a high lately. an inspiration high, that is. i'm realizing how exciting the future can be. i'm figuring out who i am. and i'm loving every second of it. i'm trying not to let anything get me down. school. money. stress. fagettaboutit. life is about living and adventures and stories. and that's how i intend to live.

all of this inspiration has got me rethinking me. my brand. who i am as not only a photographer, but as an artist. it's people like hannah and andria and promise that have me realizing that i don't have to box myself into one career. i am free to be who i want. when i want. as i want. as a result, i've noticed myself growing. i'm rooted deeper in the word of god. i'm more comfortable with who i am. i keep coming back to 'bold'. i feel bold. i'm drawn to bold. i want to be bold.

so as i begin to figure out just what that means, i leave you with a mix of some songs that make me want to create. inspire. be bold. and i also leave you with some photos i took early september just before the temperatures began to drop. it was a shoot meant to capture life in one of my favorite spots in minneapolis. i plan on doing so many more of these. because seriously it was so much fun.

  6. Yes. Earlier in the year, when I was making goals on what I wanted to do and who I wanted to be, the word "bold" came to mind.

    By the way, your photos are fantastic. I'm glad you are back! :)
