When I made the decision to take a break from work for a while I thought I may never return to photography. I was burnt out creatively, jaded and exhausted. However as time moved across the landscape of my life I began to realize it wasn’t photography that I was disliking but all of the nonsense that comes with owning a business. I was doing photography that wasn’t authentic to me just to appease clients. That is not a good thing for a creative soul like mine. Then one day I asked myself what work was I happiest with in the past year and my heart and mind yelled ” your work from the beach this summer”. Then I looked up and saw in a row on a my wall – images from those sessions. I had chosen to put those images in my she shed – my retreat. Subconsciously my mind had been drawn to the last time I remember being in love with photography. With that said I will spend most of my energy in 2016 changing the direction and purpose of Amanda McNeal Photography.
THE LIGHT SERIES
So as with everything, change is inevitable. You can throw your hands in the air like Buddha and let the change engulf you or dig your feet in the ground like a statue and refuse to budge. Up to you but I will choose hands in the air anytime. You will begin to watch my blog change and transform into something new and different from the past. Thanks for all of you that have followed me on this journey and I hope you stick around to see the magic of childhood and the love of life unfold on my blog.
