Welcome to all you Dare to Dream readers!
If you don’t know what I’m talking about it means you’re not following the Dare to Dream blog…..and you really should! A friend of mine, Whitney Johnson, has created something amazing with this blog…..a community of support for women who are pursuing their dreams. This month Whitney is featuring all kinds of guest bloggers, everyone telling their stories of how they are pursuing their own dreams. It’s pretty dang inspiring if you ask me, and really a pretty productive use of your procrastinating-so-you-don’t-have-to-fold-the-laundry time.
How do I fit in here? Today I was the guest blogger.
Something about writing that post for a larger audience than my own little blog-o-sphere made me really think hard about what I was going to say. Was it important? Would people care? Would I say something that people hadn’t thought about before? Would it ring bells?
After reading it, what do you think? When you want to be someone, or experience life in some way do you give yourself an image (photographic, mental, verbal) of who or what you want that to be? Has a photograph changed the way you see your life? Yourself? I think the reason therapy works is because it helps you get out of yourself and see things from another perspective….it increases your self-awareness. Can a photograph be therapeutic?
I’d love to know what you think.
I’d like to try and give you the same type of experience with photography as I had with this snapshot. So, leave me a comment. If you leave one before next Wednesday (June 24th) you’ll be eligible for two things:
1. 20% off a regular priced photo shoot (see my photography website for pricing info) for yourself or someone you know who lives in the Boston area.
2. A chance to win a free mini photo shoot ($150 value). In anticipation of all those family photos that people will need for holiday cards I will be holding three mini photo shoot sessions (four back to back slots in each location). They will be held this September and October on three different Saturday evenings (exact dates to be determined by me). One will be at Plum Island Beach (Newburyport), one will be in Somerville at this urban setting and one will be in downtown Boston on Beacon Hill. These sessions will be quick 25 min sessions (enough time for one, maybe two different group set ups). They will include one cd of 5-10 high resolution images for you to use and print as you like. They’re perfect for husbands and kids who hate getting their pictures taken.
If you’re the lucky winner, and you don’t live in Boston, you can give this as a gift to someone who does.
I’ll be choosing the winner randomly next Wednesday, so check back then!
So leave me a comment…..you might be really happy that you did.
