I've been having troubles lately deciding what I want to do in the next couple years. Where I see my life going. Where I'd like to travel to next. Where I'd like to live. How to make enough money as a photographer. I just turned 24 and I'm starting to feel pressure to have my shit together. Some people say that I already do but I never feel that way. There are constant thoughts scrambling around in my brain. I hear myself saying "I don't know" all the time and there is a fear. A fear of the unknown. But then I take the time to look back and see what I have accomplished in the last year. How far I have grown, how much I have already learnt about myself being on my own again. Self Portraits were always something I wanted to do but I was in a position where I was being told not to do them. I was being controlled and put down for them. I left that environment and now here I am baring all to all of you. At first I was terrified. The first nude shoot I did... I was so scared for the world to see me. But it was magic. It was emotion. My emotion. Finally I could feel myself being freed. Like a bird being let out of a cage.
This summer I have joined a Project called The Flower Project. It was started in Florida and myself and another photographer are now covering B.C. The stories I have read from women are heart breaking. The strength they have, the courage and the honour that they want to take their final step with me is tremendous. My heart beats for all of you. I love the family I have become a part of and I love the people who choose to follow my work. So thank you.
