Published in Shutter Magazine | December 2017
I am so honored to have been included in the Inspirations Section of the December "Digital Strategies Edition" of Shutter Magazine. (FB: Behind The Shutter).
The amount of talent in this magazine is jaw-dropping and I couldn't be more humbled and thankful to have been included.
A few months ago, I picked up an issue of this magazine at Barnes and Noble. As I held it and flipped through it, I felt incredibly inspired and motivated. My mentor Sue Bryce always says to state your dreams and goals out loud. So, I did. I stated out loud, "I want to be in this magazine." The fact that I woke up to this announcement simply reinforced my beliefs in her words and my abilities.
I cannot wait to see what 2018 has in store. I look forward to pushing past my current limitations and becoming the photographer and artist that I strive to be.
I do hope you take a moment to join us in our excitement! Shares and love are always greatly appreciated.
Behind The Image:
My favorite moments are often found while out in nature. Something about the smell of dew-covered moss and pine warms my soul. When we created this piece, traveling long distances wasn't possible for us so we decided to bring the forest to our studio.
The feather moss, mushrooms, and other earth elements were all sourced and gathered specifically for this series.
There are no limits to what you can do if you believe in yourself.
