I had two very inspiring days in a row. I was offered the opportunity to spend time with two very special and talented photographers. I loved talking to them, listening to them. They both shared so much experience and advice with me, so generously. I feel inspired, I feel rejuvenated. There’s nothing like good human interaction, decent conversation and two way of exchanging ideas. There can be a huge awkwardness when you spend a generous amount of time with a person you don’t really know, but it’s amazing how shared interests can melt the ice and build the relationships. Then talk continues about food, family, movies, music and lots of learning. I’ve embraced these last two days immensely. I’m so grateful to Michael Rayner and Scott McNaughton¬†along this journey. The energy, the spirit I got from these guys have been amazing already. I even ended up with a bonus portrait from Scott. I love these pictures. They truly reflect who I am, most of my close friends would know. When Scott was taking these photographs in order to show me some lighting techniques, I was telling him how bad I am in front of the camera and the only person takes good pictures of me is my husband. In a split second, he did really capture who I am. So today I thought I present the world a glimpse of myself…
