Recently, I spent an evening chasing the sun with friends of mine. From one simple question came an incredible time of encouragement, learning, and collaboration. At one point I was even left in tears, happy tears.
The incredibly talented Tattrd Photos by Sasha and I’m in love with them! If you head to the photo I shared on Instagram a bit ago you can see who all else took part in the magic of golden hour photography. She just recently started pursuing photography, but you can tell this was what she was meant to do. You see the sparkle in her eye and then you see the magic that comes out in her photos.
Nights like this one remind me of why I am so thankful to be surrounded by incredibly supportive peers. As someone who is just learning how to use a DSLR camera it was amazing to be able to ask several people who know so much more about it and have my questions answered.
It was also an evening filled with encouragement from everyone there. I mentioned that at one point I was in tears, this was thanks to Shannon of Adventurous Mama. I tend to feel very uncomfortable and awkward in front of the camera, she changed that quickly and made me realize how much I need to change my own mindset and how I feel about myself.
What a night! For now, I leave you with the beautiful photos Sasha got of me. I think photos that involve chasing the light at golden hour may be my new favourite.
