Thank you to my followers. I couldn’t have done this instagram/ blogging/ fashion thing without you. Really. I love every single one of you and your support is what helped get me to this point.
I took this photo on a Saturday night before sunset, the night I got to 10K followers. This photo means so much because I was so frustrated in the beginning of this shoot. I couldn’t get my camera to cooperate and I wasn’t thrilled with the background. I had hiked all the way up this hill carrying my camera, heels, and tripod to get a photo to celebrate almost 10K. After walking around in search of the right backdrop for 2 hours, I almost gave up until I came to this intersection. I liked the pastel buildings and there was only about 30 more minutes of sun in the sky, so I had to give it a shot. I ran into place and did my thing, placing my hand purposefully over my chest because the wind was on another level. I came back to the camera to see the photos and I loved them! Of course, it would have been nice to get the right shot 2 hours earlier, so I didn’t have to miss my dinner plans, but that’s how it works. Just because I had something to celebrate, doesn’t mean that it’s going to come easy. Yes, I’m a much better photographer, I have confidence, and I know what I’m doing more than ever. But it’s always going to be hard work. I’m excited to reach 10k and even more excited to help my followers more and more everyday. This is just the beginning of Colette Prime.
