I don't know about you, but in my everyday life, I like to treat myself. That's something that I really encourage people to do. Maybe it's buying a new book or maybe you normally make your coffee at home, but decide to pick up a cup at your favorite coffee shop. Maybe it's buying the shoes that you've had your eye on (one of my personal faves). Whatever it is, it should be something just for you. The treat can be big or small, but it should be something that makes you happy.
Well, I have to sometimes remind myself to do that in my photography. Although I LOVE the photography that I do in my business, I also enjoy just shooting for fun - for myself. And one way that I can ensure that I'm doing more of it is to carry my camera with me more often. Well, I did that last weekend and I must say that I get all heart-eyed when I look at the photos that I captured (and even might have found a new personal photography project that you might be able to figure out when you see the photos below). I might even get some printed to hang up at home.
Expect to see more of my personal project photos here in blog posts and maybe I'll create a subpart to my portfolio with these images as well.
What personal project are you working on? What's the thing that you do for yourself because it makes you happy?
