Seeing Differently

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of attending an InstaMeet (if you're unfamiliar of what that is, it's when a bunch of local photographers and aspiring models get together and take photos!) in London Ontario hosted by two of my friends, Tom Hortiz and Adam Knapper. I met SO many new, incredible people who share the same love for photography as me and I'm glad to call them all friends. After we spent almost 6 hours of shooting (and I even did some modelling!) a group of us who were left decided to continue the night and grab some grub at Crabby Joes which was just a table of lovely stories and laughs. Once the day was done, I was so extremely happy with all of the images I was able to get, I started editing the images immediately after arriving back to where I stayed for the weekend. 

I found myself in a rut, as most artists do, but it was for a completely different reason than usual. I normally find myself in a rut when I haven't shot in a while, but this time I had only been shooting weddings which although very lovely can diminish your creativity! Whenever I can't be creative, shoot, or even plan shoots, I feel empty. I realize how "emo" that sounds but photography is not just my career, it is my passion. Without photography, I am not the best me I know I can be. So, this is a thank you to every single person who attended the InstaMeet for making me feel so loved, appreciated, and beautiful. I can't believe I get to call all of you amazing people friends.

Without further ado, here is a collection of my very favourite images from that incredible day (in no particular order!).
