Sometimes it is not what you intend to create but what you need to create to open you up to inner most dialogues and thoughts.  This image was inspired by a creepy image of a hand lit from above with melted wax - the ending seems so far from that. 

So many things go into creating images, from your model to the weather and occasionally what you are reading or which netflix show you watched.  I listen to audio books (alot of audio books) when I go on my walks, and hubby recently introduced me to a new title by Neal Donald Walsh called 'Tomorrow's God' it has clearly had an impact on my inner workings and contemplation.  I found myself saying to my hubby 'I know this will sound weird but I think the purpose of living is to have joy, and that worry is (along with other factors) why I got sick.  The purpose of living it so enjoy life not to be caught up in worry and frustration'  (I had to pick up my hubby off the floor at this point).  So, considering all of that is it a surprise that I created an image that is comming out of the dark, with the trinity (be it subconscious, conscious and super conscious or Father, Son and Spirit)  It is the marrying of the 3 to help lift us out of the struggles.


inspired by Sue Bryce

In 2013 I came across a portrait photographer from down under named Sue Bryce.  At that time she had a mission to bring back glamour portraiture, not the 80s style that I still have haunting nightmares about but a more updated version.  A Vogue magazine inspired glamour, traditional chic.  Her desire has always been…'to help women to love and value themselves, to recognize their own beauty and to have amazing photographs of themselves.'   Over the last few years her message has been refined and reinforced with the passage of time.    

Photographers around the globe are echoing Sue's words encouraging everyone (but especially women) to exist in photographs.

'Exist in photographs for yourself. Exist in photographs for your children.'  

I am one of those portrait photographers, so I ask you, when did you last have your photograph taken?  #EXISTINPHOTOS now.
