I interrupt your typical fashion posts to give you a little bit of an insight into my world as a creative blogger. Currently we live in a world where we are constantly being told to change ourselves to fit into a very small, very well-defined box. We are told if we fit into this box we will experience success. But, whose definition of success are we chasing?
Is it the amount of money we make? Our number of followers? Happiness? I believe the answer definition of success and happiness look different on all of us. So we are we bombarded with this idea that we all have to follow the same path to get there?
I have tried shooting in the moment. I have tried shooting only iPhone photos. I have tried to stress less about the content I create. But to be honest with you, it’s not authentically me.
I spend endless hours creating mood boards, brainstorming campaign ideas, cutting out magazines, scouting locations, and working to create a style that is uniquely my own and 100% authentic to who I am. Since the day I started this blog one thing was always obvious to me: I wanted to be proud of the content I create. I want to inspire others through art and learn to love myself while doing it.
I champion the people that shoot iPhone, use tripods, and can capture beautiful content in the moment. It takes an incredible amount of talent and attention to detail. I just choose to create differently.
I guess what I am trying to say is do what is true to you, create what you want, how you want to.
Remember behind the lens, behind the numbers, we are all HUMANS.

I think your pictures are beautiful!

I love this, babe! I was just thinking about how we are focused on becoming successful but how do we actually define that word? And isn’t it all relative when it boils down? Like, if you really think about it, by who’s standard are we determining our “successful” achievements? It’s very interesting to me. Love your hearing your perspective ????
