The Woodlands, TX
Looking down, I saw my pants were dusted with debris from the granola bar I devoured on my way to the shoot. Earlier, I was tackling my inbox, creating welcome packets, and mailing products, hoping to be as productive as possible before heading out with my camera for some personal work.
I had arrived at our shoot location, a quiet field near where I live. As the wind gently brushed the bottom of my model’s gown, I took a breath and enjoyed the calm while my mental to-do list faded. Smiling, I picked up my camera, the fallen granola bits a mere memory of previous tension.
This shoot is why I continue to love personal work, one of the best ways to unwind and evolve as a photographer.
