i woke up this morning feeling quite overwhelmed in life.
i feel like i have held myself together for a loooong time, but this morning when i woke up, i felt the pressure of all the needs around me.
my head is spinning!
this building represents a dream
you see, when i first started taking pictures, a dear friend let me sit her coffee shop and work
all day long i would work and dream of the building right across the street
i have been staring and dreaming
i see beauty behind those walls ~ behind those windows
so, on march 1st we moved out of the cute little studio that we just moved into a year ago
and on march 2 we began to make this beautiful blue building our new 2300 sq. foot studio home
and we have been going hard ever since!
so . . .
between dreams and reality is where i have been living. . . and i gotta tell you, as amazing as my dream is, the reality is that much harder to embrace.

this image, is just that place – caught between the dream and the reality –
the beauty in the dream, in her robe, in the softness, in the the design, in the future, in the marriage, in the love
the reality waiting to be embraced, the strain of the load carried . . . in her back in her hands . . . .in her belly
there is something so amazing
something so tender
