Glow: Personal

This post is a lot of things. An explanation, an apology and a commitment. I've not been around for a while. I never thought that I'd be here, writing that life had got busy and that I'd not had time to post for what seems like an age. But here I am! I'll tell you what happened. 

In the last couple of months, I've spent time shooting lovely engagement sessions, a beautiful wedding, and meeting couples about their weddings next year. It's been lovely! I've also started to volunteer two days a week (more on that another time). Things have started to fit together, I'm doing more photography and I've found a social project that I'm delighted to be a part of. 

When photography became a part of my life I shot to learn and to create. Lately I've not had much of a chance to photograph things just for fun, just to create something lovely. 


Here's my confession. My 365 project has not really happened in the last couple of weeks. I don't really have much to say about it except that I felt I was just taking pictures for the sake of it, and it didn't inspire me. I've suffered for it.

One of the things I've realised is that I love creating things. I've been an academic most of my life and I always assumed that I wasn't a creative person. I've surprised myself. I've found myself dreaming of pictures, new things to try and beautiful light to exploit. So here's my commitment to myself. I'm going to start creating again, and I'm going to do it every day. Some days I won't make it, but for the days that I do - it will be worth it. So here it is. Day 81.

What do you do to help you persevere?

Much Love, R. x

  1. I have always found that if I follow my passion it will fuel my heart when I start to doubt myself or waiver in my commitment. The passion helps me press through the "dry times" when I am not inspired or inspiring.

    It was lovely meeting you in Coventry...loved the pics! You have a talent! continue to develop it and the sky will be the limit! Blessings!
