Breathe {inspiration for whatever day I get this written on!}

January is a funny month for a photographer in the Pacific Northwest.  It is chilly and rainy - two qualities which are not conducive to photo sessions.  It is also dark - also not great for a photographer!  Sunrise doesn't grace us with her presence until around 8 am and unfortunately leaves far too early around 4:30.  (If there are any clouds, it just feels like twilight from about 2 o'clock on!)

So what is a girl to do?  

I am hoping the month of January will be a month to stop, reflect, take inventory of life and business and then DREAM.  You will be seeing a few photo sessions here and there, but overall I just need some space to dream about new things.  

I have a few things that are already swirling around in my head...probably prompted from cleaning out all the extra "stuff" from my baby props and studio.  I am hoping to offer a class to moms on "telling your story" - how to use your camera better and capturing the story of your family.  (Any takers??)  I am wanting to write some prayers and take pictures to couple with them on a weekly basis. I am dreaming about creating a calendar for next year from some of my "non-people" images.

We'll see what actually happens, but right now I'd like to dream.

All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes to make it possible.

 May we all take time to dream.  May we sense a calling newness as we do.  And may we dream with eyes open to make what we dream possible.

Breathe, smile and go slowly.
