- Whatever is good for your soul... do more of that. // Maybe it should be that simple sometimes, huh? We had a rare, cloudy day last week and when I saw the light in my office while I was editing, I had the urge to create. I have a neighbor who lives six houses down, Mindy, that also happens to be one of my closest friends. God put her in my life for so many reasons and the impulse to create is one of them 😆 No team or production, just nourishing our souls through experiments and friendships while her boys napped. Sometimes it’s that simple but we can’t quite see it because we are bombarded with strategy and objectives. They’re important but this year and the one that is coming, my heart is set on serving through beauty. But not beauty for beauty’s sake. Beauty that creates community, that heals, and gives a voice. I hope you hold me accountable :)

- By knowing your intention, showing up with it, you will be able to see it and direct it. // In my last post, @kmurrayphoto asked me what conversation led to this scene. YES!! I love answering what lens I use, but asking about the intention?! This is where you will see a shift in your work. When you’ve decided what is meaningful to you as an artist — as a person — you will attract people that hold those values and those visual moments will suddenly be so obvious. You are present to recognize it, see it in a new way, and translate it... through photos, video, or whatever medium you choose. I find my best work stems from that place of human connection — a place of beauty with meaning.

- How do you choose what to film? For me, I am guided by the conversation that’s happened with my subject before filming. I don’t decide that day what is going to be significant because I have already listened for this. Instead, I’m looking for ways to *translate*. This allows me to create something that doesn’t feel like a formula. As Eliot Rausch once said: “Truth is truth. Humanity recognizes truth when it sees it. It transcends any kind of formula or manipulation.” Isn’t it true how our gut can just feel the difference? And isn’t it quite hard when beauty and curation has become a standard? How do you aim to create from a place that is truthful? Where do you start? // BTS with @ponderosa_and_thyme #alevidalbts #storiesofwomen #intuitionseries

- You know that feeling when your mind has a vision but you're not quite sure how to manifest it into something that FULLY (and justly) captures your expression? There is so much to be felt and said. I definitely understand. For me, video captures that intangible element and has been my favorite way to help others explore that vision to the level they have in their mind. @kaylabarkerphoto does encaustic wax work to preserve her photography and I'd been wanting to visualize that in video form. I experimented with this aisle runner at the chateau and it beautifully captured the light and visual we had storyboarded, reminiscent of the wax texture from her encaustic pieces. Team work done through exploration. Swipe over to see a behind the scenes clip.

- What we hunger for perhaps more than anything else is to be known in our full humanness, and yet that is often just what we also fear more than anything else. It is important to tell - at least from time to time - the secret of who we truly and fully are because otherwise we run the risk of losing track of who we fully are . . . and little by little come to accept instead the highly edited version which we put forth in hope that the world will find it more acceptable than the real thing. It is important to tell our secrets too because it makes it easier for other people to tell us a secret or two of their own . . . - Frederick Buechner

- Y'all .. I am overwhelmed with gratitude. Yesterday I released the first short film of my series - Intuition. I thought THAT was going to be the best part of my day, but it wasn't. It was connecting with so many women. Women I love, women I create with, and women I've never met but we are still connected. This was a reminder that the pursuit of this series, if I strip everything away, is to connect us together. To hear each other. To feel known. Because on our worst or darkest days, we just need that reminder of our best self - who we are capable of being when we might lose sight of it in the dark. Thank you for allowing me to do that and standing with me as I do. Know that I'll always stand by with a candle to find you too 💕

- There is a strength and beauty when you are in tune with what your gut says and choose to follow it. It is here where you create your best work because it means you trust yourself and it shows up in what you create. I want to tell you the stories of women who do that. _____________________ Intuition - Chapter One: @sfawnd.

- You have the power to change people's lives. _____________________ We began filming for this video when I was pregnant! Over the past few years, it has been a privilege to create with and get to know @suebryce. This woman is not only an incredible photographer and business mentor - she is a mirror to so many women who struggle seeing their value and perception of oneself. The relationship we have with ourself shows up in our business, in how we perceive money, how we perceive the worth of what we create, and what we think is good enough. Sue Bryce breaks through this and reaches a place that not many people can and holds a light there. That's what her educational series is TRULY about. I feel honored to have captured just a glimpse of the soul behind this platform -- SueBryceEducation.com #alevidalbts

- In about 2 weeks, I am going to be introducing a project based on an idea I've been nurturing for over a year. It will be the first of a series of films that I've been pouring my heart and inspiration into. I'm pushing deeper into what it means to be a storyteller and it reminded me of a memory from high school. _____________________ I was 16 when I watched the film Memento. My mind ran WILD. It was the first time that I ever saw a story that wasn't told linearly and it really spoke to me. Maybe it wasn't a new idea, but that decision taught me that the vision can sometimes be more important than the plot. Fast forward to today, I've realized that there is no ONE way to tell a story. Each of our stories deserve individual treatment. Not every story that I make will be the same or follow the same trajectory, but I know that while there are many ways to tell a story, there’s only a few ways to tell a story that REALLY captures someone’s essence. I'll be sharing that with you soon.
