This last April, I ventured on my own to the Bloom Forum’s SEE Palm Springs Workshop with the incomparable Summer Murdock.
It’s the only word I want to use to describe my time there. It was everything my soul needed and more.
On a extremely cold evening (yes, it gets cold in the desert. It even snows there sometimes), we found ourselves in Joshua tree. We each had ten minutes to shoot with two different families. That’s hard, right? Ten minutes with a family you have never met before. But, as scary and intimidating it felt at the time. I walked away with the affirmation, that we truly don’t know what we are capable of, until we are given that small nudge, or big shove, into a situation that really challenges us.
I have to say I am very proud of the images I created in that short amount of time.
Very proud indeed.
Did I mention how magical the desert is?! Gah! I LOVE IT!! Who wants to go back with me for some family photos?!
