I Always Need to be Inspired…

Here I am with the boredom of January. Not because of nothing to do or no places to go, but because this is the month that greets us photographers with fear…those photographers who have just recuperated from a busy season are hoping that 2013 will be good to us and they will persist to flourish in a business ~ more so than the year before; a business that has EXPANDED with talent and photographers popping up everywhere.  This is the time I reflect on who I am as a photographer but mostly as an artist and where I want to be. I am constantly in the need to see a little light, a little beauty, a little inspiration ~ and explain to myself what my goals are for the months to come. This is the month I only have a few sessions a week instead of multiple sessions so I therefore I often wonder when I will shoot again {this is the negative side of me}. The barrenness that winter brings ~ the trees look gray and bare ~ the weather can be too cold and is evident on the client ~ so I try to find inspiration in other parts of my life that is put aside during those busy months. So I think to myself ~ I need to get back to organizing my life again ~ as an artist that comes last ~ as a Virgo, this part of me drives me CRAZY ~ but when I am able to us the creative side of me ~ my organized {perfectionist} side of me gets hidden…. for AWHILE that is…this is the month I plan my year, and my household, and place my goals…organize my spring garden {hopefully I will have one again this year} and maybe I need to start getting back into decorating. My house IS in DIRE NEED of some tender loving care. Every dollar I made has been invested into my business and the house is starting to show ~ so I will be back to grabbing inspiration through other outlets like redecorating and PINTEREST ~ such a wonderful site that can burn any fire for anyone who is on it.

I have learned through the years to bring my camera with me ~ at all times ~ because honestly inspiration is all around us regardless the time of year it is…its just disguised under all that gloom…and for me all I have to do is find a little organization and it starts flowing again…and I love when it does happen…when you least expect it.
