flickr!!! ive missed you so much. incredibly happy to have something to upload, once again.
this was shot in monterrey, mexico at one of the creativity workshops i taught this month alongside daniel usenko - who is one of the most lovely wedding photographers! i cant even explain how surreal the whole experience was... to be traveling the world, helping others to free their spirits and create. every single person i met was incredible, and i feel so honored - i think i might be the luckiest girl on the planet.
despite all of this, i still managed to have plenty of nightmares the last few weeks. even though all my wildest dreams are coming true, it still can be incredibly stressful, and difficult. my life is changing so, so fast and sometimes its really hard to keep up with. when i sleep, i think i take all of this stress and begin to let it out through my dreams... sort of mopping up my subconscious messes, if you will, and allowing myself to wake up the next day, usually really tired since its hard to sleep, but ready to take it all on again and keep pushing forward. somehow i need to find a better way to deal with the harder sides of this journey, so i can truly say goodbye nightmares.
im hoping to shoot lots + lots of personal work this summer! i have a few weddings to catch up on, and another to shoot this weekend, but july and august are looking good for shooting on my own. :)
model is one of my dearest friends, alyssa. :)
