Parachute Pants + Embracing Change

This shoot was so much fun for me. I’ve never done a studio shoot and this being my first time, I wanted to make it interesting. I bought these colored filters online and together with Fatou we played around and created cool effects with the pictures. Definitely going to be doing more shoots with different colored filters so stay tuned for that!

Change can be really scary because it is inevitable and we never really know what the outcome is going to be. I believe change is important because it allows us to shed our old skin, and by this I mean start new healthy habits and de-clutter our lives. When we want to see things in our lives turn around we have to accept that we need to change the way we go about things. I also think it's very dangerous to not embrace change at all in our lives because the world around us is constantly changing and we need to do the same. We grow stronger when we accept, embrace and learn from change. Whether this has to do with work habits, our diet or the energy we surround ourselves with. We grow as individuals because honestly, with change sometimes comes failure which is okay. If we fail, we're going to learn new things, get back up and deal with it effectively till we we get it right. Make a change while you can before the change makes you. Allowing it to dramatically affect us in a negative way will make life much harder. Take the plunge and explore what life has to offer that could enhance you. Don't just stick to what makes you comfortable because you will be unable to seek new perspectives and grow as a person.
