For the first time in my life last year I spent it mending a broken heart. I could never have imagined being so blinded by love until it happened. He was my one and only it was us against the world, he was my dream, a man who I felt I was walking toward in the darkness, until he shone a light on my life. I cherished every moment in his arms relishing his adoration for me and mine for him, but like most things it didn't last.

If you were to asked me to define the idea I couldn't. It fell apart faster than I could hold it together. I still feel and live in the pain and memories most days, I dream if him most nights, his voice that would calm me, his arms that would wrap around my waist and keep me safe, small nicknames and smells that linger behind. The experience has made me more compassionate and understanding than I have ever been before, but I feel there is a piece of me that will never be recovered and I put it down to my open and lively heart.
 I never want to feel more or less pain than I do. To feel things so deeply takes courage and strength and I am better for it. To all lovers lost, Im still wishing you the best even if you are not in my life anymore. Life is complicated.

Summer sun

"A light from within never fades"

The afternoon sun sets over the beach, it takes me back to summers trapped in a hot car longing to get to the cool embrace of the ocean. I would stick my head out of the window and try to suck in as much fresh air as possible  before I would finally make it to the beach and I have to race to the cool fresh ocean  before the hot sand burnt my feet.

The afternoon changes colours like rainbows in the sky. It reminds me of poems and salt washed hair, sun kissed skin and wind in the palm trees. LA dreaming, riding id a convertible.

It reminds me of endless days of fun and youth to ride roller coasters and to lye in the park and continuously giggle.

Summer sun reminds me of fresh sheets and light that flashes through the trees or my sheer curtains that get caught floating in the wind.

Hopefully the summer will never end and my heart will stay forever young.

52 Portraits 2014

In 2014 I took on a personal 365 project, like I do every year. I challenged myself to take a portrait a week for a year (52 Portraits) knowing that I was going travelling and that I want to take photos of people I had not yet met, people I had not seen in a long time and people who were familiar to me. It was a challenge but I loved every minute. I built up the courage to ask strangers, had great and inspiring conversations, learn't about each and every person, challenged my perceptions and improved my portrait photography immensly.

It is challenging committing to such a project but oh so rewarding so this year Im taking on the challenge again but to be creative every day. I hope you set yourself a challenge this year and keep encouraging yourself to grow.

If you would like to read more about each person that I photographed you can view the images on my facebook page at:
