My days flow according to schedule, I plan my to dos out and if something unexpected pops up, then I wish you good luck getting the “grumpy cat” back on track. Nevertheless, it does feel like a breath of fresh air when you do something fun at the spur of the moment or just break out of the rut for a day. This photo shoot is the result of that and you know what? Cold weather is a great excuse to switch things up a little and get creative indoors. In street fashion photography you want to seem natural, sort of “caught in the act”. As soon as you go indoors, you have control over the temperature and most importantly the lighting. You are a lot more limited as far as the background is concerned, but you have more freedom with posing and creating mood.

The older I get, the more I embrace myself and my story. This also means that I am turning this creative island of mine more into something that’s more of Bogi’s personality and perspective. It is so easy to fall into the trap of trying to keep up with the latest plaid blanket scarf trend, those “lazy Sunday” (in full makeup and perfectly lit bedroom) shots or the “14 things you need to create a cozy home” type of posts. It’s exhausting, because it’s not you but you think that’s what the readers want. …and because it’s exhausting, you’ll lose fun and you lose your authenticity in the process quicker than you’d notice.

I created this space because I have always loved fashion and designing clothes. This blog means the world to my parents who live 6000 miles away from me. My mother looks at my blog, sees a new post and she’s proud and most importantly her heart is at peace. It’s because of her. She gives Rick and I her two cents on the photography which keeps us motivated to be better next time.

We are on a journey to challenge ourselves in photography and creativity.

On that note, I wish you all a great week ahead! Don’t forget to SPARKLE!

    This indoor shoot turned out so well! It is hard to take blog photos in the winter. I am just like you when it comes to routine and getting grumpy when things don’t go as planned. It is something I am always working on.
