Some of the fondest memories I have of Cryssi and I were in our back yard, rapidly collecting wild onions and grass to make into a poisonous stew to ward off the evil witch! Our daddys wheelbarrow was the boiling pot and our giant spruce trees limb was the spoon. Our backyard was our inspiration. It was a land where girls who wore hand-me-downs could be princesses... where grass necklaces could be diamonds... where a broken swing set could be a castle... and we sisters could be warriors :) It was our happy place and I still go home to momma and daddys house and smile from those back yard memories.
Growing up can be a good thing, but there is also some bad that is mixed in. When dreamers turn into adults, we sometimes forget about all of that bunched up inspiration that made our eyes sparkle. Being photographers without a studio means that Christen and I have to be constantly searching for that sparkle to return. We cling to inspiration and sigh when it hits us. Inspiration takes so many forms... sometimes, it can be in the form of a person, and that is what we are celebrating! We want to share stories with you that have inspired us to be better people... better photographers... better women of God. We want you to sit in your comfy chairs, wrap up in your favorite blanket, have that warm cup of coffee or tea in hand and share in what makes us go day to day with smiles inside and out. Some of these people we have never met, but hope to! Some of them have been in our lives for years and others for months. Some have made us laugh until we hurt and others have made us shed tears of joy. All of them are beautiful people full of joy and inspiration just oozing from them. All of them see life through a different lens than what we use. All of them have a boldness that quickens us to take that extra leap of faith. I promise that you will all fall in love with each of them!
We will be posting our first Eye Sparkler on Thursday and you ALL HAVE to meet her! I am not going to spoil it but she has made Cryssi, I, and our familys look at life differently.
