Happy Birthday to Me!

Posted by on Aug 3, 2015 in Photography | No Comments

Today is my birthday! I’m 43 years old! If I’m supposed to feel old, I don’t. But I have to admit that I feel a little lost. Birthdays always make me take a hard look at my life and right now I don’t know what to think.

Happy Birthday to Me!

What I mean is I feel lost creatively. My random creative path really doesn’t work for me anymore. It’s time I took a hard look at what I’m doing.

Scrambled Eggs

I’ve decided to stop doing stock photography just for the sake of stock photography. Honestly, I just don’t feel anything when I create these types of photos.


The same thing goes for Image Brief (the apple photo above, which didn’t get picked by the client). My photography has to mean something.

And the only time my photography means something is if I do a recipe or something similar. I become a perfectionist. A lot of times the photo isn’t good enough and it takes forever but it’s worth it.

Cutting Pancetta

A sneak peek at a photo for my Spaghetti Carbonara recipe. I don’t know how long it’s going to take. I want to try to find some kind of Italian pork meat called guanciale so we’ll see.

I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m 43! I don’t want to waste time doing things that don’t mean anything. Happy Birthday to me! Haha.

Love, Ana
