Hey guys! Hope everyone is doing well today. We have a little editorial session to share with y’all this afternoon. We spent another day with our good friend, Skyelar, at our home and had some fun creating together. We didn’t shoot for incredibly long, but we had a fantastic time as usual and I walked away with a number of frames I am quite fond of.
The concept was simple – Big sweater, big hat, and some shades.
I am loving the idea of the freedom we are about to embark on with our business when we go full time at the end of March. Also, you know, our big move to NY-FREAKING-C! Just thinking about all of the extra time I am going to have for creating art in that city of endless inspiration is making me more excited than I can possibly explain.
When it comes down to it, we consider ourselves photographers first and foremost. Do weddings and couples serve as the bulk of our content? Absolutely. And we LOVE shooting them and spending our time with our couples, but that still doesn’t relegate us to the corner of a box. Our hearts lie with the act of creating art through documentation itself. Whether we are shooting a wedding, a lookbook for a clothing line, or just messing around with friends in our studio, we always set out to create with our whole heart. It’s so vital that we, as artists, really feel and believe in what we do. And, not only that, but that we challenge ourselves and never, ever reside within a box. There’s a vast world out there. Literally. So, if we know that, why would we ever want to corner ourselves?
Absorb all that you can and put every bit of passion you have into what you’re creating at that moment. And don’t be afraid to try new things. You might fail, sure, but that’s your door to try again and succeed.
Until next time, friends!
