Something I have been contemplating in my mind for awhile is the idea of success and its trials and confidence blocking walls and obstacles leading up to it. I have realized in nearly every circumstance everyone is apart of the "Race". In this race there are pot holes and massive boulders and sticky mud spots keeping us from reaching the finish line. The finish line in this representation is success and taking pride in accomplishing something great. I have come to understand that everyone that participates in this eventually falls or slips well as everyone completing the race at different time periods. When we hit these obstacles especially when it's a reoccurring event where it consistantly happens can destroy our mental/ positivity and want to finish. In my mind success happens not necessarily right away for everyone and for some it comes faster and easier then others. I believe that as long as we keep picking ourselves up , brushing the dirt and sweat off even if it takes 10-20 years we will eventually cross that finish and be able to take pride in that. We will be able to look back on the past experiences and say, "I worked hard for this!" "I can do hard things!" Something I am beginning to understand is success is not an overnight event. It is a continuous grind. Eventually we will make it. It's a matter of having the strength to get back up when we fall. Happy Easter guys:) Stay Strong ... × × × × × #portraits#portrait#portraits_ig #pixel_ig #portraiture#expofilm3k#portrait_perfection #portraitstyles_gf #snowisblack#portraits_universe #featurepalette#bleachmyfilm#portraitmood#featurepalette#rsa_portraits #makeportraits#profile_vision #top_portraits #life_portraits #postthepeople#quietthechaos#2instagood#way2ill#justgoshoot#artofvisuals#l0tsabraids#ftwotw#igpodium_portraits #ftmedd
I know I’m a little late but Happy Earth Day! In reality earth day should be everyday. Sustainability in our environment is something I’m SO passionate about. Being vegan and plastic free has really changed my life. Here are some steps to help our world be a better place 1. Go vegan! Or reduce your meat and dairy intake. Factory farming is one of the biggest contributors to pollution and the tearing down of our rainforests 2. Use reusable products! I have these reusable ziploc like bags I’m in love with (Amazon) and use jars!! 3. Really understand recycling. I listened to the podcast Getting Curious with Johnathan Van Ness’s episode called “What’s really going on with recycling hunny?” And learned so much 4. Watch documentaries and get educated! Our Planet, Cowspiracy, Food Inc, etc. 5. Fight for what you believe in! Get involved with your community to save local nature sites/national parks. 6. PREACH THE LOVE! Talk about it with your friends and family. We are all humans on this earth together and we should all be able to live in peace and harmony 🌱💛
These two people were absolutely amazing on their wedding day! Right as the ceremony was beginning it started to rain. Everyone ran inside and the hopes of having it outside was diminishing. After waiting for the rain to pass they decided to go ahead with the outside ceremony. That was the best decision ever!! It was such a beautiful ceremony and the lighting was to die for!! We got those moody clouds with a sunset in the distance!! 🔥❤️☀️❤️🔥
In November of last year, my publisher Rizzoli New York emailed and asked for a follow-up book idea. In the midst of the PR hustle around The Animal Kingdom, the thought of another book was not even on the radar. • But after reflecting on what would be next, I came to believe that the fitting sequel to The Animal Kingdom would have to be of a species that we share a deep bond with. • A species that has been by our side for millennia. • And so, in 2019 I will begin working on my new book which will focus solely on man's best friend. • This video marks the start of an exciting journey and I have a longer version, linked in my profile, that dives in deeper on my process and the making of each portrait. • This Saturday at the @easblivefromatx gala, the renowned @heathhale will be auctioning a studio photoshoot of the winner's dog that will guarantee inclusion in my book and a large format framed piece of artwork. I’m excited to be able to present this project in front of an influential audience but even more importantly excited that this project will begin by raising money for those in need. Many thanks to all involved bringing this video to life, specifically @charlieuniformtango @chrisdealy @hitthemarkanimaltalent @lolalott @evanlinton @jake_wilganowski_dp @katfrostharper and @ericsalo. And thank you to the amazing dogs and dog owners that were part of this video. • #dogs#dogsofinstagram#mansbestfriend#dogportraits#puppies#puppy#animalart#makeportraits#thenanimalkingdom#randalford
When I take photos I'm motivated by various things, but one of the big ones is bottling up memories like pictures in your mind which you might lock onto in the moment and recall again and again as time goes on. Everyone has those moments, and what I try to give my clients is that intuitive mental image that they can hold in their hands long after the moment is gone. My kids won't always write me notes in the sand, but at age eight they do and that's something I don't want to take for granted.
