Travel Notes

Coming Home Again…

It has been a whirlwind 8 days around here. First 3+ days in New Orleans for Imaging USA 2012. Then after only 12 hours home in Houston, I was off again to Salt Lake City for 3+ days at the ALT Design Summit, which was packed full of learning, revelations, and FUN.

The big lightbulb moment for me came when I was asked if I wanted to be a photographer who blogged, or a blogger who is a photographer. I have so long been frustrated by feeling this big divide in my life. Feeling like I just abandoned this site 5 years ago when I started photographing weddings. It was never my intention, but that was how it played out. I want that to change. I want to write here again like I used to do.

So I will. I will be a blogger that is a photographer again. And saying that makes my heart sing! I left ALT full of creative juices (and a TON of notes in my moleskine) and just wanting to MAKE things again. I forgot how beautiful that feels.

Mother Nature cooperated with my plans, and I got some amazing photographs while on my flight home! The one above was taken as I flew from Salt Lake City down to Phoenix for the first leg of my flight today. The sky was completely full of clouds, making this crisp white line. As soon as I saw it, I saw this photograph in my mind. It brings me joy. [Taken with my iPhone, posted to Instagram with no filters.]

How was your weekend? I hope it was as fabulous as mine! I can’t wait to share more about ALT!
