Well friends, I finally did it! After much discussion and encouragement, I have decided to create a blog. This is something that people have been encouraging me to do for years now. I think I always hesitated out of the fear of putting myself out there. As a creative person, everything I do is so personal - though I think this is true for any creative mind - and exposing rawness on any level can be terrifying.
Developing Joy has been a long time coming. It has been a journey, a struggle, and a gift. I am choosing to become venerable in order to share the joy and beauty I see in the world around me. This will include my portrait photography, tips for your sessions, adventures with my daughter, and even landscape and wildlife photography. It is a combination of all of these elements that creates joy and beauty in my life, and I want to share that with all of you.
I will be sharing images from photo sessions as well as personal work and some completely random stuff too. I will also reflect on living a creative life, and the struggles and gifts that provides. While I may revisit some things that some of you have seen if you have already been following me on Facebook or Instagram there will also be plenty of new content.
I hope you'll join me and feel free to join in the conversation! I always love hearing from all of you!
