Beauty

We had a session with Kaylene the other day and she was talking to V about purpose.

What is your purpose?

And aside from writing this stuff, right here.
I’ve always felt like my purpose – my life’s work can’t be “just designing clothes”.
It felt fickle.
Not deep enough.

I come from a culture.
A bookish history.
A lifetime that wasn’t dedicated to the love of art and the beautiful.

I come from hard work.
Tough lives.
I come from days with less money.

There was not a moment to be lost in musing.
In a wandering brush stroke.

Then.
Trump got elected.

And all over my feed.
There were women.
Healing.
With beauty.

A flower.
A few words.
A smile.
A petal.

Anything.
That would give hope.
Calm the eyes and calm the mind.

Bring healing.

And I realised.
Beauty is that.

Not what we’ve made it today.
But that.

A trip to a gallery to soothe your soul.
A home which is alive with greens and flushes of pink.
Those eyes lined with kohl.

A sensory awareness.
We don’t allow ourselves to indulge in.
Is beauty.

PS Merry Christmas my friends. I hope you’re full of all the feels with those you love surrounding you. For I’ve recently realised, there is no greater blessing than that.

Tips for Photographing Your Baby

I promise, none of this “You know whats best for you” business happening here, the bluntest Tips for Photographing Your Baby ever. I’ll let you know exactly which lens I use and which post editing apps. I get so annoyed with blogs that say “do your research”. I’m like, “Honey, I am doing the frickin research, just tell me now!”.
