When I was two weeks old I was taken into surgery it was the first and last time. I was anesthesized with ether gas and my birthmark was taken from me. But, I was always happy as a child. I laughed with siblings took family vacations. And I can remember carrying around a empty broken camera with no Film in it. Always seeing images.
I guess I'll never know what that birthmark was I hear it was called a "starberry" . A small red birthmark so harmless yet mine. My mom tells me I was so angry when I came out of the recovery room. I wouldn't even look at her. And to this day my angry Harry Potter Frankenstein scar that announces my side stays with me.
But, today's blog isn't about my scar. Not really it's about finding gifts in all parts of my life. As a creative I feel I have the best set of gifts ever. I have the ability to create Art and images and sometimes that can be a mixed bag of emotions.
As a Photographer I create beautiful portraits of people. I see them and find a side of them that perhaps they have never experienced. I show them glimpse of a reflection that I capture. And with these portraits I always feel a bit of meloncholy upon completion of a session. Why? Because to me the pure happiness comes from finding that one moment in a session. But then when a client has the reveal session. And sits next to me and sees the work I created for them that is pure magic. The golden ticket. To see a client sit for two hours fixated on a image that I made it brings me joy beyond anything I can describe.
That one second when light meets eye when shadow becomes mood.
I love to Create images that become a glimpse of something anything a moment forgotten. A time to remember. Something lost, someone found. A moment you will cherish as a art in your space.
So, yes I found a golden ticket! I have my art my creative channel. My Photography becomes my voice and my dreams. And I am lucky and grateful Daily. That I can share this with my clients. Who so graciously allow me to vision quest a image of them for them.
