Have you ever had something you wanted to say but weren't able to? So you keep it inside, always thinking it, but never actually formulating the words and speaking them out loud.
That's what this shoot was about for me. Its about the courage to enter into the water even though you don't know whats lurking underneath. Its about swimming instead of watching. Its about baring it all and accepting the outcome. In the end, you emerge from the water a little dirty, but somehow rinsed from the perception you've always had of yourself. You start new. You start fresh. You start clean. You start living life the way you intended to.
Dive in, my friends. The water is fine.

Big thanks to Emily for helping me say what I've been wanting to say for a long time... Even though her exact words when entering the water were "Ewwwwww.." she handled it like a pro and was so poised and graceful and portrayed herself exactly how I envisioned. Emily, you are my purple haired muse:)
