Castle Rock Shoot with Heather

If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you'll come to understand that you're connected with everything. -Alan Watts

Hello, friends. I've been quiet here because my progress has been very internal lately. Saturn return is real! All of the cogs I've been collecting and discovering and creating over the last so-many years have been shifting into place. I've felt like I'm on the verge of something big for almost two years now, and it's been an awkward and trying time, but I can sense that the puzzle is almost complete. Fitting for my upcoming 30th birthday!

This shoot was a lot of fun. It was my first in a long time, and I loved going out into the woods without much direction or pressure for the shoot and letting the day and the environment guide us. Every time I shoot, I want to shoot more. I may adopt this go-with-the-flow approach and shoot more in the upcoming year with less production, less editing, just realness.
