I hope you guys have all had a great week so far! I want to thank everyone for their kind comments and messages in response to my post on Monday. It was a hard post to write, but I felt it time to be honest about it. In the bleakest part of my alcoholism, I would find myself scrolling through social media wishing I could have the lives of others I was seeing on my feed. Everyone was happy, carefree, traveling, successful, in love, having babies, skinny, or out and about living their lives and I was in my lowest moments, wishing so much that I could've had a life like that instead of an alcoholic one.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with sharing good stuff! My troubles were all of my own doing and not anyone else's fault, I want to make that clear. That said, social media can also be deceiving in that people typically only share the good stuff, so you are only seeing what they want you to see. I want to use my small platform to be as transparent as possible and potentially help another who is in the same sinking boat I was in.
So, as scary as it was to write and post, I am glad I did it! And I am so thankful for how warmly you all responded and the love and support I got from you all! That means the world to me!
It is actually a little less about the look today and more about the photography! That is more or less the main focus. I went to this park a while back with a friend and saw this huge field plus the rustic, shed in the following pictures and was instantly inspired! This look came to mind right away. I think because the skirt is so breezy and paired with the crop top it has a very boho chic vibe about it.
A week or so ago I finally decided I wanted to spend a morning shooting out in the field. I got ready, packed up my things, and headed out. I was probably there about an hour and a half and got a lot of great shots in. I braved tall grass where I was certain I would be chased by a snake (it did not happen thank God!) and I sweated to death! I also almost lost my keys several times! (I didn't carry a bag for this look, so I would toss my keys on the ground by my camera. And several times I walked off without them, then realize it and have to go searching for them!)
But the pictures came out really pretty in my opinion!
I do have to say, although it was a lot of work, it is really exciting to have a vision in my head of what I want something to be like/look like and then to actually bring that vision to life.
A lot of these pictures were almost exactly what I had envisioned in my mind! And that is such a remarkable feeling! I am having trouble coming up with the right words at the moment... bear with me! Its late and I'm tired! xD
I hope you enjoyed this post! I hope you have a great weekend and thank you for being on this journey with me!
I love you guys! See you Monday! <3
