I was determined to blog something this week. I mean did you see my waiting list on Instagram? So to motivate me to blog, I chose something that makes me happy. Sparkly head piece. Field of flowers. Bohemian wedding dress. Ok I can do this. During the summer, areas on the side of the highway become full with wildflowers. For those of you who don’t know, in NC, the DOT plants wildflowers on the side of major highways. And the money comes from personalized license plates that are purchased (thank you to Michael’s grandma for that nugget of information). I now have it on my calendar when these fields are in bloom because I love shooting there! Even though Wilmington has it’s plethora of beautiful places to shoot at like the beach, as a creative you do get bored shooting the same thing over and over. So needless to say, I can’t wait for these flowers to bloom every year.
I think it’s so important to make time to shoot the things you love. You’ll find that you get a little burned out when you are contained in this box of what clients want. Dream up something that you love and matches your style and make it happen! You’d be surprised at how willing people are to help if you just ask.
So I found a pretty friend of mine who had some free time and we ran out to the field! Unfortunately I was a little late this year and didn’t get there in time for peak season but at least there was something to work with. And the weather was crazy! We thought it was going to open up on us at anytime! But thankfully it started to rain as soon as we jumped in the car.
