Sometimes, if you want something, you have to shout it out into the Universe to make it happen. Public declaration is a powerful thing.
I have always been a creature of comfort. The thought of “home” is my favorite thing, the notion of being safe, comfortable, surrounded by the familiar and the people you love. I have always been content with staying and working around home, but recently something has shifted in my heart.
I”m wanderlusting something fierce over here, y’all!
I got a taste this year of what it’s like to have an opportunity to travel for my business. It’s thrilling oftentimes puts me out of my comfort zone, but I’ve realized it has helped me push the limits of my art, brought me incredible experiences, and helped me make connections that otherwise might not have been possible.
And y’all, there is SO MUCH to see out there! So much of creation, and art, and humanity. And I want it. I want to hear the stories of new people and capture the beauty of new and inspiring places.
So, here it is. My bucket list. If you know of anyone in these cities who might be engaged, interested in booking a session, or is a creative looking to do editorial work (YES, I WOULD ADORE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHOOT MORE EDITORIALS), please contact me!
Charlottesville and Williamsburg, Va (I have my first winery wedding in Charlottesville next year, and I’m elated! I would love to shoot more of these)
Charleston-Duh, if you know me, you know this is our second home
Beaches in Florida
Anywhere on the coast of New England. Maine, Massachusettes, Vermont
ANYWHERE in California, but particularly San Francisco, Napa Valley, Orange County, and San Diego
The Virgin Islands
London-Particularly Cottswolds outside of London
Italy-Rome, Florence, Venice. Italy is my dream
Looking at it, this is a big, bold list. But I’m at the point in my life and my business that I’m ready for big, bold things. And if you aren’t willing to shout your dreams aloud and chase them fearlessly, than who else is going to do it for you?
what awesome goals you have! You are right it is definitely hard putting them out there, but it’s funny when we finally do we feel like they are set in stone. We just shot a wedding in Annapolis a couple of weeks ago and it was GORGEOUS! I too am loving all the traveling opportunities that come up! Good luck to you. Love following you blog! 🙂
All beautiful locations! 🙂 Hope you get to shoot in them one day. <3
Yes! I love this fiercely! Shout it from the roof tops, and let’s go forth and make it happen 😉
I’m in San Diego now and I’ll be moving to Charleston next year!! Would love to do a shoot with you!!!!! 🙂
Hello, love! I am trying to talk my hubby into joining me when I visit VA in November! We will be (hopefully) staying with friends in Williamsburg! I’ve always told him I’d love to do a session there, it’s so beautiful! So…if I talk him into coming, I’ll be contacting you for a 6 month anniversary session 😛 I know it’s not a wedding, but I would love that!!! Good luck on all your goals, you are going to do such great things with your business!!! I can’t wait to see you accomplish all of these!
