I always find it easier to be an artist in my photography when I feel that deep in my mind, gut, and soul each image I share to the world is a reflection of my own way of creating. Not his or hers or theirs, but mine. As much as possible, I try to put a little bit of me in each image "painted" by my camera.
My sister shared this photo with me and I had to smile. It reminded me that long before my love for photography existed, before Heartbox Photography was born out of that love for creating with a camera, there was my dad's Pentax 35 mm camera and two sisters who rocked the Rainbow Brite and Bruce Lee-ish bowlcuts with a smile. A huge smile.
