52 Weeks Project | Week 48 | The Dreamer


My mind has been swamped with creative ideas lately. It's one of those months where I wish I had 10 more of me to walk around to do all the things I want to do and NEED to do. I spent all last week making stuff for Leo's 2nd birthday party (See that fun Monster Mash theme here) and I thought for sure after the party my mind would take a break from the creative churning that it does (such a blessing and a curse lol) but sure enough, the day after Leo's party I was already dreaming about doing this photo. So I stuffed it in against the madness that was the rest of the week and did my best to make it happen. And I'm so happy that it turned out the way it did despite my initial plan not being able to happen! 


I had a lot of fun making this one. And it's a concept I've had in mind for years and years but never seemed to have the resources to make it happen. And all I did to make this cloud was cover an old IKEA paper lamp with cotton filler and spray adhesive while binge watching shows. 

I actually used a corner of the little studio I rented for my son's birthday photos. After I finished taking his photos I used some extra time to do this little mini shoot! This turned out different from my original concept, but I'm honestly super happy with the way it all turned out :]

Fun fact, I started up a new instagram account where I'll be posting photos of things I make and journal. I've been wanting another creative outlet after this project is done (Only 4 weeks left!!) so that will be where a lot of my creativity probably goes. Feel free to check it out and follow along for other things I do other than photography!
