The other week I met with a friend that I don't see often enough anymore and we had a huge catch up, philosophising about life, love, our careers and the great unknown that is the future.
We talked about how we're both doing something we love, our dreams for 2016 and also taking the time to reflect on the past, because where we are today has a lot to do with where we first started and the journey itself.
So at the suggestion of my friend, I'm reflecting on the past & presenting you with a throwback Thursday blog! My humble beginnings that I am still immensely proud of & thankful for, because without them I wouldn't be where I am today.
BACK THEN... Some of my very first images really make me want to scream at my former self "What were you thinking?!!" I was like any photographer starting out; trying to find my style, trying every photoshop preset out & learning about light, camera settings and more. I am forever grateful of my loyal clients that had faith in me & gave me the opportunity to learn & grow!
AND NOW... I am so proud when I look at my work these days. I see consistency and a style I can call my own. Yet I'm still developing and learning, because there is always room for improvement.
I see Throwback Thursdays on social media all the time, but it's been a while since I actually sat down and compared myself to my previous work (which is the only comparison creatives should ever make!). It's refreshing and reassuring to see how far I have come and also to reflect on how it all began.xx
