It’s been a long time since I’ve shot a big project. Ever since Linc was born, 100% of my energy has gone to caring for him and dealing with the road post birth. I do miss having time and feeling inspired, but need to remind myself not to put so much pressure on perfecting every avenue of my life.
Looking through photos I’ve taken over the past year - most are just simple snapshots of our family. Little moments and firsts. First smile. First solid food. First crawl. First steps. First trip home to Hawai’i. First time meeting family. My photos aren’t the same as they were years ago and that’s okay. I think the important thing, is to keep documenting. Even though this path feels completely foreign, I know it’s all slowly leading me in the right direction. Where I need to be. And right now, this is where I need to be.
It feels nice to get that off my mind and out into the universe. Put it out there. Move on.
We shot these photos on a frosty morning in Regent’s Park. Barely anyone was out walking the gardens and I spent some time standing in the sun, admiring the dew and sharp winter light on the flowers near the fountain. Salt was laid out everywhere to prepare for the coming snow and I wondered for a second while staring at it all, what it would look like covered in white. We took a few photos of Linc and I standing in front of tree lined path which was littered in burnt yellow and orange leaves during autumn.
A much needed walk outdoors after being sick and stuck indoors for weeks with influenza.
The fresh air was just what I needed.
