This word has been wondering around in my head for a while now waiting for the perfect time to manifest a post and the time is now!! As a creative person, inspiration can come from so many places and them come bursting forth in my photography and my music! I am inspired by people, places and inanimate objects! There is nothing out of the realm of possibility!
Let me give you some examples:
I am inspired by my husband, who decided to give up alcohol! It was killing our marriage and our family life and was sure to kill him if he did not stop! It has been 60 days and I am so inspired by his courage to face his issues head on!
I am inspired by my mother-in-law, who is keeping a positive outlook despite battling cancer! Her "new" hair inspired my newest cut and color for my hair! Yes, her new do looked so much better than my old one! Now I know that a more natural look is best for me!
I am inspired by my clients! They are so neat to observe and photograph! Many times, I do not have to tell them how to pose because they are just being themselves and what better to capture? I recently photographed twin, senior boys! What fun and what a challenge they posed! However, all I had to do was observe them and viola'! Take this photo, for instance, this is something they do on a daily basis and I saw it as an inspiration!
You know I cannot resists hands but let's not forget about the feet! I just love little feet! Here a few shots you will love!
And this last image was inspired by the location itself! I have walked past it many a time and never gave it a second glance but Monday it jumped out to me as if calling my name! I am so glad I listened or I would have missed this:
