This post by Wendy from WendysLookbook is not only beautiful, but also inspiring, just as every one of her blog posts are! The reason that this one particularly stood out to me was because of why the location of these photos were taken at, and how they were taken.

Last night, Mystery Man and I went on a date and spotted a fountain on our way home.  With pure excitement, we parked the car and rushed towards the fountain.  MM with his quick hands managed to snap a few pictures while skirting by the water with me.  We felt like little kids enjoying a carefree moment!

After reading this, it made me stop and think.

THIS is why I take photos.

THIS is how I act.

THIS is something that I feel I can heavily relate to.

A while back, I had attended my volunteer teams 5 year anniversary, and whenever I saw someone and the perfect background or saw a moment, I literally either rushed to the scene to capture it or I was squealing and dragging the person to make that photo happen. I have to say, I was EXREMELY happy with myself that night. It also happens to me on a daily basis when shooting, at any day or time, and the feeling of seeing that single photograph come together just makes me speechless everytime. Here’s some of those photo’s that describes what I just wrote about:

One of my favourite photo’s taken that night! The colours were just so perfect, I couldn’t help but squeal after taking this shot.

My team is too comfortable in front of my camera and I abused that to no end that night.

What’s an anniversary without those super tight killer hugs and the screaming of “OMG I HAVEN’T SEEN YOU IN FOREVER!

 

Captured moments that others won’t notice until they see the pictures later on. Those are the ones you’ll look back on and always smile at.

When you’re passionate about something, there is always a source for that passion. I’m not “passionate” about fashion like I am photography, but I would say I’m inspired and finding a lot of potential with it. A BIG reason I started taking it a bit more serious and prioritizing it in my life a bit more is because of Wendy Nguyen.

Her fashion diary is simply STELLULAR. What I love about her is that, not only does she take risks with her fashion and her taste in clothes, but what she wear’s is affordable and doable. These are very essential to me when I look at fashion now.

I don’t want to have to waste how many paycheques simply to buy one super expensive name brand item to make a super chic outfit that’s so “out-there” that I would never have the confidence to even BOTHER to wear it. You know what I mean? Wendy is realistically stylish. All of her outfits I could see myself possibly wearing, one way or another.

The photographs taken of her are an absolute BEAUT! I’m always inspired by these photo’s to get better at my own photography! I love love love the quality and the genuineness of them!

I found Wendyslookbook through her video “25 Ways to Wear a Scarf in 4.5 Minutes!” (It’s the coolest and cutest video EVER!) Her videos are thoroughly well done, well executed and all creatively unique. I highly recommend simply checking out her site or videos.

I learned a lot from her, not simply about just fashion, but how she truly conveys herself through her appearance. It’s easy to not care about how we look, but at the same time, making an effort to look good and feel good is a fantastic feeling! You can have so much variety with how you dress because styles are endless.

I learned to try new things and not to be afraid to embrace my body in terms of dressing it. I’ve always been very conscious about the fact that I’m tall and skinny. Most people always tell me they wish they had my body, but I always said they shouldn’t say that. I wasn’t always comfortable in my skin, but I’ve really changed. I have a lot of fun creating outfits (layering is my favourite) and finding new looks that suit me (currently obsessed with maxi’s and skirts).

What’s your current muse/inspiration? =)
