Happy Monday, friends! This weekend, I had someone ask me about my goals for the blog. This wasn't the first time I'd been asked, and I didn't really mind saying that I had no idea. I'm in college, and I'm still focused on classes above everything else. Then, the same person asked me about my brand, and what aesthetic I hope to accomplish through every shoot. Guys. I had no idea! I have a small list of specific shots I want to achieve, but I don't have an overall goal! I've had this thought for a while now. If I do want to watch this blog to continue to grow, what do I want to see it grow into? How do I want others to describe it?
I sat down today and began to really think about why I started this blog in the first place. What inspired me? Who inspired me? After thinking about all this, I came up with these words to describe what I hope I can grow the brand into:
Lighthearted (but not shallow)
I know these words are kind of all over the place, but I want this brand to be a translation of everything I hope to be, and the relationships I want to build with others. I went through some of my favorite blogs and focused on why I love them so much. I love Hannah McBride's honesty. I love Jillian Harris's integrity. I love Aspyn Ovard's positive attitude. I love Leonie Hanne and Amelia Liana's inspirational images. I love Amber Fillerup Clark's down-to-earth attitude. I love Bella Bucchiotti's adventurous nature.
Through all these things, I wanted to pull inspiration and create a brand of my own. I know this list is hefty, and I'll probably never be able to transcribe all of my hopes and desires into the blog, but this is my goal! Not only for me, personally, but for my relationships I hope to build in the future.
I always tell people that my blog is primarily image based. I want my experiences to be seen more than I want them to be heard. I've always been a camera person, haha! Therefore, I've started compiling a list of words that I hope will be able to describe my images in the future, but I won't bore you with them right now. Thanks for reading and, as always, thanks for following along in this adventure with me. You guys really mean so much to me, and I've loved meeting and following along with so many of you!
