A Thank You Ramble

This year has been a pretty special one. I felt like there’s been a big shift in Jodi Redhouse Photography over the course of 2015. I’m not sure whether this is a cumulative effect of years of pushing, figuring out what type of business I want to run, long hours and late nights. Maybe it’s a combination of these things. Perhaps it’s just me that’s changed during this time.

But really, when it comes down to it, a large part of this shift is all because of you. You believed in me, let me into your homes and your hearts. So much of making good art is about faith. Taking a deep breathe and trusting that you’ll end up where you need to be. This is not always the same place as where you intended to be. It’s a tricky thing to buy into something doesn’t exist yet. When it comes to custom sessions, there’s a little *leap* that we’ll create something that is authentic. Its a combination of you trusting me, both of us trusting the process, and allowing a bit of space and time for things to happen.

Minolta, film camera, devon, film is not dead, slr, grass, field, light, lifestyle photos, canon 1v, thank you, gratitude, custom artWhen you relax into this space during your session, there’s a look in your eyes showing that you’ve let your guard down, there’s a little shimmer in the air, and my heart beats a little faster. It’s at that moment that I just know we are in the right space to create good stuff.

Now before my tangent runs away, what I’m trying to say in a long winded way, ineloquent way is thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. If you are reading  this, you are ones of the biggest reasons why I do what I do. THANK YOU.

Much love & a whole lot of gratitude,

Jodi Xx

Ps. This image was shot on my lovely old Minolta DX5. The most fancy thing about this guy is his built in light meter (no auto focus here). He forces you to slow down and smell the flowers. What’s not to love about that?
