While on the set of the La Fiorentina Fall 2013 photo shoot, I began to realize that our own lives can mimic what was going on right in front of me. It hit me that organizing, preparing and focusing on a specific goal are as essential in real life as they were for planning the perfect picture. Reaching goals and becoming successful don’t just happen because we want them to; it requires a lot of hard work. I witnessed that first hand when I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to capture some unpredictable moments behind the scenes in these photos at the La Fiorentina shoot; they are priceless and those candid moments are what set them apart from all others!
Although nothing beats that perfectly planned portrait, it’s what goes on behind the scenes that truly make it all come together and create that lasting image.
Sometimes our own vision of life may become blurry and unfocused, especially when what we originally pictured has developed into something much different. Those are the times when we are our most authentic selves and should be open to new possibilities. When you realize those opportunities are gone in a flash, you should utilize them to create your own film. You never know…your life may just turn out better than you ever could have imagined. It’s time to get out of the dark room, and enjoy the shooting process…because life’s best moments are unedited!
