Taking My Photography Hobby Seriously

Posted in My Life, Photography by

I love taking pictures.

Capturing moments, settings, awesome views, facial expressions. It’s so cool to me. It reminds me of choreography and theatre staging. Having a theme or concept in mind, and working on achieving the right shot at the right time. I love it.¬† So, I’ve been dabbling for a few years, but at the end of last year, I made the decision to step it up with my photography.¬† After I took my friend Ica’s workshop¬†in January, it was on!

Y’all know my theme for the year was “Challenge yourself”.¬† Learning more, doing more.¬† Bringing my camera along with me and experimenting with lenses. Stepping out and sharing my photos on social media. Actually telling people that I take pictures.¬† I haven’t always been good at promoting my work or informing, but I’m growing into that confidence. And I have some awesome friends who have been so encouraging all year. So, if you’re reading¬† – thank you!

Because of my commitment and awesome favor, it has led to some cool opportunities, which included my first paid gig.

Being Creative with Canva!

Posted in My Life by

I know the calendar year begins in January, but like most teachers, my work year starts in the fall.¬† Not that it wasn’t important before, but with new jobs and other changes going on, I have to constantly manage my time and stay organized.

As part of my “Challenge yourself” routine,¬†I had to kick it up a notch in regards to my teaching and choreography. If I’m on my A-game on all fronts, I know my students will follow. That’s always my goal. So that means I need to keep everything I write in one place so I don’t lose anything.

The buying part was easy. (Y’all know how I go ga-ga over notebooks and stationery. ) With my blue binder, I assembled my perfect kind of notebook – cute folder dividers, paper with lots of space to write, the works.¬†But something was missing. I didn‚Äôt have a cover; my mother suggested I’d make one. To make it my own.¬† So, I used Canva to create a poster.

Back to the introspective me…

What are my goals? 

How will I get them done? 

For the next twelve months, I am challenging myself to transition into the best me. So, why not create a fun twist on these goals? A few things I would to do/accomplish/see, etc. by my birthday:
