I want more.

I want more.

Travel is lighting me up each time I do it. And I want more.

I’ve enjoyed myself for the past few weeks and feel like I am just now coming off the Boston high. It was a lot of fun! I had set an intention a few years ago that I wanted to be able to go on a trip at least once a year with my kids and treat them to a few days and have a blast. And, I accomplished that this year!

'This is me at 40!'

'This is me at 40!'

When I got a call from Andie late last summer, I was so excited! I remember thinking after we got off the phone, OMG, I want MORE of THIS kind of awesome, badass woman as my client!”

She was turning 40 in December and wanted to celebrate herself as she worked towards self-acceptance and confidence. She decided that she wanted two sessions - a ‘Celebrate You!’ and a ‘Natural Light Nudes’ photo experience and so we worked to make that happen!

We didn’t get a chance to meet for another few weeks but talked several times in between and so when I did finally see her in person, it was as if I knew this woman all along. And what I knew of her long distance was in fact, more than true in real life!

Transformation: It's an inside job

Transformation: It's an inside job

You know by now that I LOVe watching women show up and feel beautiful and confident in their skin! It is so much of what I do as a photographer and you would think that after all the women that I have worked with, that it would be something I do for myself as well right?

And, to be honest, it is now finally something I have gotten better at -- I mean it only took 20+ years for me to get there! :) And it is a constant practice that requires patience and diligence and habit. It is a way of living for my physical body to be well and also for my mindset to stay strong.

But for a LONG time, I wasn’t exactly walking the talk and it occurred to me every time I would meet with a client.  You see, back in the day…

The “Tasting Platter” I received from the Universe.

The “Tasting Platter” I received from the Universe.

That song, ‘California Dreamin’ isn’t too far from wrong.  As I sit here on a cold, blustery day in Atlanta, my mind goes back to last weekend and I smile from the memories. I have been trying to keep a bit of that trip in my back pocket this week when emotional shit has been hitting the fan and it has been a big help. And in those moments where we spiral down a bit, as you probably know, it isn’t always easy to keep the good energy intact.

So here is my beautiful “Tasting Platter” I received from the Universe as I celebrated my newly found freedom and 52nd birthday in California last week.

The gift I received in California.

The gift I received in California.

My post today was going to be about my adventure as I find myself at this ridiculously gorgeous resort in California celebrating my 52nd birthday along with my newly found singlehood and freedom!

I was gonna talk about how important it is to celebrate yourself (because that is the theme this month!), or how the (super cute) chef made my food specifically for my protocol and then came out to chat (aka flirt) with me for what seemed ages...

But then at dinner tonight, as I was finishing up, I met Deb and Scott.

Deb just leaned over and started chatting with me. And then for the next two hours, we all chatted about so much and I walked away so fulfilled and happy and realized that this was exactly what I needed this evening.

And then the dream became real.

 And then the dream became real.

You know the one thing that you really want to do and it sits deep down inside of you and you always think about it but (at least for me), can’t get yourself to move forward on? Or you think others will judge you on so you ignore the nudges.

I had that “thing” for many, many years. Always wondered. Always doubted (myself). Always would dream about if I could make real “artwork”.

That dream for me had always been to photograph nudes.

I almost feel silly saying that out loud. It makes me feel super vulnerable and judged.

I'd rather be imperfectly perfect, how about you?

I'd rather be imperfectly perfect, how about you?

I just wrote an Instagram post that is going live later this week and it says “If we can see ourselves a imperfectly perfect, life just shines so much brighter and becomes easier and we become whole again. It is then that we see ourselves as beautiful, kind and worthy of it all.”

Because trying to be perfect sucks and is too much work so I’d rather be imperfect at it and be happy and take care of myself in the best way that I can, how about you?
