All Things Will Pass

Chicago-Skyline-Photography

All Things will Pass. I recently came across an old friend’s status which were quite inspiring to me. It’s truly courageous to hear other’s perspective on life, on their happiness as well as how they deal with pain and fear. That is a major reason why I enjoy reading everyone’s blog and posts. I just want to thank each and everyone of you for your words, for they can affect and change a persons outlook on life and can make a positive impact in a persons life. I’ll leave you with some words that made me write this post and think about how I handle fear.

Over the last few weeks I have had to come face to face with fear. What is fear? We all have fear, but we all choose to face it in different ways. For me, for the longest time I would put anything I feared on the back burner and would hope it would just go away, but that wouldn’t solve anything, it would only burn and grow bigger and stronger. I’ve realized that it’s okay to have fear- but rather than avoiding it- taking it head on and confronting that which you fear. Detachment. Nothing is permanent, we live with temporary situations with temporary attachments, it’s when you separate yourself from the thought of attachment that abundance flows and the permanence you seek comes to you. Energy goes where energy flows. Time to conquer the fears and triumph over them.

Home is Right Where You Are

Chicago Skydeck Sunset Photography
Home is where the heart is. Home is where you make it. Home is wherever I am with you. Home is family to some, friends to others; a sense of nostalgia. Some are still searching for home while others do not know what home is. For me home is a feeling. It’s not a specific street, a set of random numbers placed on my mailbox, but more of laughter, smiles; a sense of being on top of the world. It’s not one specific place but a plethora of places, although I feel at home in Chicago quite often. It’s that feeling you get while you are standing at that place. The sense of excitement, enjoyment, calmness. It’s as if nothing else in the world matters except for this moment. If you are smiling right now, laughing, curious, or in love. If you are happy, you are home. Home is right where you are.

Lindsey + Neal: Chicago Engagement Photography

Chicago Engagement Photography

Lindsey + Neal | Chicago Engagement Photography

It was the beginning of 2016 and the bitter cold was sweeping through the air in Chicago, as I join a newly engaged couple, Lindsey and Neal, through Millennium Park. Like any other Sunday afternoon, the city was full of life, which makes Chicago the perfect location for an engagement shoot. From Michigan Avenue to the Cloud Gate (the Bean) to the Planetarium, each location added it’s own energy creating a unique backdrop to a truly special and exciting time in this young couples life. Lindsey and Neal’s engagement photography in the heart of Chicago.

Reflections in the Sky

Chicago-Skydeck-Photography

The cars are stopped, waiting as a sea of people cross the street as if it’s just a part of their daily routine. I’m standing above them, blinded for a second by the reflections of Chicago off a building the Chicago reflects. Feeling grateful to be able to stand above the city that I call home. Happy Wednesday!

Late Night Walks

Chicago Skyline Lake Michigan Beach

No matter what the temperature is or what day it may be, one of my favorite things to do in the world is go for late night walks along the Lake Michigan Beach in Chicago. It has always been a sort of sanctuary to me. Maybe it’s the sound of the cars speeding along Lake Shore Drive, the few joggers passing by, the cool breeze trailing off from the lake or the waves moving back and forth from the edge of the sand as if the lake was gently breathing. Whatever it may be, it has a hold on me. When ever I need to clear my head or just need to take a walk, I do not hesitate to get in my car and drive to the beach. It’s more than just a quick escape from reality; it’s almost like a best friend (if a place can be considered a best friend) where you get comfort, can let go and can open up and be yourself at. I walk along the path, with the Chicago skyline in the distant, I recall the familiar scenery although every visit I seem to notice something different. I tell myself that I’m there for photography which I do most of the time, but often find myself searching for sea shells hiding within the sand or skipping rocks as I watch them disappear in the night. Just maybe, these are the reasons why late night walks on the beach are one of my favorite things to do in the world.

Stay Golden Chicago

Chicago Skyline Sunset

The sun sets over a sea of buildings as unique as the people that inhabit them. The Chicago skyline reflects the warm colors of the sky. For a second it seems that spring is finally here, but I know that that could change in a blink. Nevertheless, seeing Chicago from different perspectives, from different heights, behind different lenses has grew my appreciation towards this bustling city. No matter what time of day, or what type of weather, it is always in motion. Stay golden Chicago.
