Life Unscripted {October} Kicking myself back together

The end of summer almost always puts me in a giant funk. I mourn the end of summer so much. We make so many memories and we spend so much time together it really does goes by way too fast. Anyhoo, the funk really got to me this time. I was not picking up my camera at all. I was mad at myself for being so hard on myself and yet I still wasn’t getting anywhere. I was slowly starting to feel really uninspired. Then September hit, the air started to get cooler and I could start to feel a transition in the air. I was starting to get out of this funk and I was feeling a tinge of excitement. To top it all off, Click Away happened at the beginning of this month and it was the icing on the cake. I can not even begin to explain how awe inspiring all of these people are who came together to celebrate and learn from one another was. It was a huge deal for me to be there with all of them. I learned so many new tricks and tips but most of all I remembered why. Why I love this beautiful world of photography. Why it lights a fire in me and why I always want to better my craft.

And the best way I know how to do that is to just keep shooting. So here is my October. Shooting my heart out and falling back in love with it all over again.

Make sure you scroll down to the bottom of this post to continue the circle. These ladies of L{U} are my very favourite ladies!


First up are a few highlights from my trip to Seattle! Isn’t our very own Courtney Maltman a beauty! I was so thrilled to be experiencing Click away with her and our dear friend April Kraus! I was living the dream this weekend and I couldn’t be happier spending it with these ladies! I truly felt loved that weekend.
