How long does it take before you start saying “I hate my website” I hear it all the time from others too “Don’t look at my website I haven’t updated it in a year.” Then you start to redesign and the hours turn into late nights, days and then weeks. Such a labour and so necessary. The one thing I have noticed as I work my way through new gallery images letting go of old favourites and introducing new work is how much I fall back in love with what I do. Sometimes the pressure the hustle the grind the competition the social media the marketing it gets you down it knocks you back. I return to service of others always but there is also this spark that ignites and that is the love of creating a beautiful image of someone. Sometimes I work on an image before bed and I email to myself and save it on my ipad. I put it by my bed and stare at it. I think about how lucky I am to be able to make pretty pictures for people. For the people I work with every day and the clients I meet. Then I’m not jaded anymore.
