2015 was a beautiful year for me, It was a year of rediscovering myself and finding my future. Many wonderful things happened and I could write a blog on all of that but I’d rather focus on one main event that reminded me of who I am and brought me to where I am today. Back in 2013 I had my beautiful little girl, Celestia, but after she was born I fel completely lost. I knew exactly who I was before her but struggled finding a balance between being me, and be her mother. I focused only on her, and eventually that left me completely adrift.
Now I must add I don’t regret losing myself, after all it was to be completely involved with my little girl and there is no one I would rather be than her mother. But you need to keep a hold of who you are and when entering parenthood that it sometimes a hard thing to do with all the constant changes going on.
Early in 2015 I did my first photoshoot in 3 years. The thought coming up to it just terrified me, but when the day arrived it was such a blessing. My photographers were Brian and Camera as well as Bill Garvie Photography. They were so easy to get along with, and put up with my extreme awkwardness and lack of confidence amazingly. I don’t think they know how much that day truley meant. I spent the whole morning doing my hair, full makeup, getting the wardrobe and accessories together. Once again I found my passion for beauty and fashion, something I had ignored for at least 3 years.
After the shoot I was left with such a great feeling, I went home and realized I had been neglecting what I had always had a passion for and that is what led me here. I had always wanted to start a beauty blog when I was in college but I procrastinated. That photoshoot was so much more than just that, it was a new light into the direction I wanted to go. I am here today because of that day and I have met so many lovely people along the way. This is just the beginning so thank you to everyone for the past 6 months, and here is to 6 , 12, 18, 24 and so many more months or years!
I have a good feeling about 2016, a lot of changes are ahead and I am ready to embrace them with open arms.
Check them out, they are both wonderful people and very talented photographers!
