dig deep

This project is making me think. About my beginnings, how I have progressed and where I want to go from here. But, right now, I am really thinking about how, for many years, I felt like I didn't have a creative side. Something I was good at. I wanted that. Longed for it. But I didn't know what it was. I tried things and none of them really stuck for one reason or another. Because they weren't the thing that lit my fire, I guess.

Around the time that my interest in photography began, I was home with Anna for her first two years of life and my sweet man was working everyday. He had bought me a Canon Elph for a birthday or something and it ended up being near me at all times. I took constant photos and videos so he could be a part of the amazing things I was experiencing at home with our new baby.

As things progressed, I got better and Chris continued to buy me better and better equipment. Flickr and my friends here played a huge part in my inspiration and growth. I looked at other people's stuff and over all of these years, developed my own style. It became second nature to be able to capture what I wanted through my lens and share it with the world.

The moral here is this - whether it be a hobby, or a job or whatever...keep looking/going for it. Don't give up. Even if you don't know what it is or don't even know exactly what it is you're looking for - chances are its in you. Keep digging deep.


  1. we all have something that makes our heart skip a beat, we just have to find it, feed it and not let go.

  2. I relate so much to that first paragraph. ♥

  3. I can almost HEAR your words Cat. So fresh and full of love for life. I hear myself in them too, and that makes me even more excited to know we're in this together.
