As she broke free.

To me, this photo represents breaking free of anything that may be holding someone back from completely and totally pursuing their dreams, and becoming the best person they can possibly be. It's something that's been occurring not only for myself but for many others I am close to as well. For myself, it was a school where I didn't belong, social relations, and laziness that have been holding me back from being the best person I can, and it's something I've started to work on - making lists and actively pursuing and seeking opportunities - I'm going to be the photographer and person I've always wanted be, and nothing will hold me back.

Model: Lindsey McCartin

    I love the concept behind this...don't let anyone keep you from your dreams. I can always tell when you upload something new, even from a tiny thumbnail on my phone. Your style is so unique, even when you use models. And your photoshop skills never fail to impress me.

    This is so beautiful is so many ways. The image is absolutely fantastic but further than that the whole message that this sends really breaks through to me, and can inspire so many as well. I'm really moved by this and am so happy for you that you are 'breaking free'
