Wild Horses

"We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another, unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, affix us in the present. We are made of layers, cells, constellations" - Anais Nin

There is nothing that speaks to my soul quite like having a hand in creating these magical moments behind the camera. A lot goes into conceptualizing, styling and executing a shoot but seeing your vision come to life makes all of the hard work so incredibly worth it.

I was lucky enough to connect with Ivan Diaz Photography last week and together we were able to dream up something so raw and organically beautiful. Flexing creative muscles in this way (creating things with other makers and experiencing as many people nurturing their gifts as possible) has been such a journey of growth lately. I feel so very blessed!
