Wind in my hair.
Sunshine on my skin.
Raindrops on the windowpane.
And pretty clouds after the rain.
These are the things that make me feel the happiest.
It feels like my life has been consumed with work lately. Ever since quitting my corporate job to be a full-time photographer, I have had a really hard time scheduling time off. Now that Fall is in full swing, I’ve been working almost everyday and I feel physically and mentally tired. I feel like so much work is getting done but somehow there is always more work that needs to be done still.
I’ve worked really hard to build a brand and a reputation and I really want to keep it up. Yesterday, I took the wrong exit after a photoshoot and ended up chasing the sunset for half an hour. It felt so liberating to be out with no agenda and it reminded me why I fell in love with photography in the first place.
All that clouds brought in the rain late last night. So this morning, we were blessed with the most beautiful sunshine and a blue sky full of clouds. And since my photo session ended early this morning, I took another 45 minutes of “me-time” to go around Downtown Sacramento Capital Park to snap these pretty photos.
When I got home, the neighbor’s yard was filled with yellow leaves on the lush green lawn so I took Jixer (my dog) out for a walk just so we can snap more pictures.
As you can tell, I am a little bit obsessed with my dog. Jixer is a super mellow, 7-year old Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix. He’s been with us for 4 years now and we cannot imagine life without him. When I lived by myself, I never felt lonely because he was always there to cuddle. Coming home to him wagging his tale so excitedly is the best feeling ever!
Going forward, I am going to try to make more time for myself and more time for personal projects like these for it drives my soul and fuels that fire within. Not to mention it is a huge stress reliever.
Until next time,
