First and foremost, I cannot even tell you how excited I am to finally be able to share this new brand, site and blog with you. It has been exactly 6 months since I experienced Making Things Happen in Watercolor, Florida as a part of the first class. I knew it would be an inspirational weekend but I had no idea that I would walk away with such a sense of self that would spill over into my photography and business perspective.
After many late nights and long conversations with my incredible designer, Aurora of Red Organic, I started to feel like my company was taking on a personality, my personality. And there are no words to describe the freedom and joy that comes with getting to that place after having shed more blood, sweat and tears than I new my body held.
Dedication has taken on a whole new meaning. In the last 6 months, I have quit my day job, altered my perspective on life, learned multiple things the hard way and yet have daily felt God’s presence in my struggles, triumphs and growth. The worrying, self conscious Gina has been shown the door. I am new. I am me. And me feels good.
Community has played a huge role in the steps I have taken as well. At Watercolor, Jeff Holt made a statement that has stuck with me through this entire process. He encouraged us to “live within our arc of creativity.” That has made all the difference for me. Many of you that are reading this have been my community over the past few months. I cannot say thank you enough for believing in me as I make this transition. Please know I could not have done it without you.
So, with an overflowing cup and a giddy heart, I give you the new brand, blog, site (thanks to the rockin’ team at Flosites) and me. The me that promises to laugh with you, rejoice with you and share with you. The me that is a full-time (and quite passionate) photographer.
P.S. I have included a few new sessions that I have been hiding away below this post for you to check out!
