I love doing one on one shoots. There is a different pace when its just you and your model that slows everything down and it’s a time to connect. When Speed Racer’s Cousin, Mary Beth, asked me if I could take some portraits of her for a modeling agency she is using, I was thrilled! Number one reason? Because she’s gorgeous. Number two reason? Because she’s gorgeous. Number three reason? I like to hang out with my models, so it was a great excuse for a day to just have fun together despite our busy schedules.
To me, there is absolutely nothing like starting my day off with a warm drink. It’s one of my few daily rituals that I stick to. I also realized this morning that it’s one of the few Still Moments that I have everyday and it always starts the day off right. My morning usually starts very early and there is something about making coffee or pouring tea that calms, rejuvenates, and prepares me for the day ahead. It’s a time where I contemplate the dreams that are still on the edge of my consciousness and turn my thoughts to what’s in store.
We all need morning moments that speak to us whether it’s coffee, prayer or meditation, or maybe lacing up your shoes for a run. What is yours? I encourage you to revel in your personal still moment this morning and start today feeling reawakened.
