Change – and falling in love…

I’m feeling the need to change things up. To stretch, to grow. To reclaim things I once used to do. SXSWi interrupted my steady posting here, and I’ve missed it. So I’ll be doing more. I’ll finish my 30 lists, but on my own time. Who knows what it will be.

I know a big part of this is the shift in my photography business. After years of identifying myself as a wedding photographer + boudoir photographer, it is hard to flip it around. And yet I must do it – I long to do it. Not that I don’t LOVE weddings, because I do. So, so, so very much. But I love even more that through my intimate photography I can help moms grow in their confidence and rediscover their beauty.

I just stumbled upon Apricot Tea this morning while searching for a new blog theme. (Part of that whole need for change, I was looking at blog themes and pondering redesigns for all of my sites.) I couldn’t help but notice her sidebar links to Sex, Love, Liberation. I mean, how can you miss a blog with a name like that?

There, in the sidebar. There it was…

“Fall in love with yourself.”

That is what I want. That is what I want for my clients. That is what I want for myself. That is what I want for my friends, my family, for everyone I meet. I want them all to fall in love with themselves.

When we stop comparing ourselves to everyone else, we can finally see the beauty that we are. I think the world needs more of that.

I couldn’t agree with you more. I’m trying to do more of that myself. I’ve been wanting to embrace my love of photography and try to make it blossom into something that could become a lifestyle rather than just a hobby. I can’t wait to get my portfolio up and running to see where it can take me. I think it would make such a huge difference in my life and how I view myself.

Because, let’s face it, we could all love ourselves a little more.

I know this is from last week, but it inspired me today. I too am in the middle of a re-invention, rebirth or whatever you want to call it. I found you because I was looking for bloggers in good ol’ H-town. Thanks for this!
