happy fall 🍂🎃 the weather has brought about a change, it's cooler, breezier, the sun is lower~
everything feels like it's transitioning. my baby boy is taking longer and more regular naps now that the energy and excitement of summer is fading~
for myself, I feel revitalized by this change🍁 it's as if our first year with our son is coming to a close and a new season is upon us bringing about deeper growth and an even deeper understanding of ourselves~
#One_Film is off to Amsterdam, Saturday 30 September, celebrating our 30th outing, #One_Film_Dirty30 using Instant film from Fujifilm, Impossible and Polaroid, and visiting @pollylucia :) and new friends

It wasn't until this past year that I truly realized how important emotions are. How important (I feel) it is to fully be able to put yourself out there. By no means do I think I've fully done that, it's a process. If we all have emotions why should we judge others for having them as well. Why are we so afraid to show these emotions to others. We're afraid of judgement among other things. Afraid we won't be looked at the same, viewed as strong or be outcasted. Afraid that our "ugly cry" is going to put us to shame. Today I really want to open up to all of you. A lot of the time I shame myself for having emotions. Although it's not good it's what I do, it's a work in progress. Over the course of almost a year now I have tried to document myself when I feel at my weakest/vulnerable points. I personally feel for myself it's important for me to share these photos. Most of the time I feel like I shouldn't have the feelings I do and people don't cry often. Completely untrue. I want to share these to show you all that you aren't alone and to also say fuck you to self judgment and judgement from others. Although I have not been consistent with my documentation it's a start. I want to explore emotions a lot more in the next year within myself as well as my art practice. This is just the beginning. Always remind yourself that your feelings and your feelings, you can feel how you want to feel.
