A few weeks ago I traveled to Boise for some much needed ME time. My friend Michelle and I had been planning a collaborative shooting trip for weeks and the anticipation of it literally kept me afloat when I was feeling overwhelmed by my daily grind. Domestic life is all consuming and while I love it, I struggle within its framework from time to time. Sometimes I just want to lose myself in the exploration of my inner artist. This can prove difficult when my reality consists of raising four beautiful children, maintaining a somewhat functional household, and being a wife to my amazing husband. On top of that, this winter proved to be a long, cold, and difficult one. Sadly, my desire to create deteriorated into excuses about the weather. My inner creative had been neglected for much too long so needless to say, this trip was a godsend. With three days away from my daily responsibilities, I was truly able to transcend into my dream state. A place of pure creativity where each day was filled with emerging concepts, new ideas, willing models, intense beauty, a variety of cameras, exploration of film, creativity, and experimentation.
This series is the first of many that I will be sharing from that trip.
and dream with me.
To see Michelle’s images from this shoot please visit her blog. We will be posting together as much as possible. I hope you will become familiar with her over the next few weeks if you aren’t already because she is completely amazing and totally inspiring.
