Keeping An Inspiration Journal

Keeping An Inspiration Journal

This is such a fun idea...reminds me of the excitement of getting new school supplies each fall and wanting to fill those beautiful notebooks with all sorts of magic! Look at this journal page and the images that came from it, wow!

Heather Boyles shares, "As artists, we find inspiration all around us. At times that inspiration is realized in our images, other times that inspiration gets lost. I wanted a place to organize my thoughts and develop ideas so I started an 'inspiration journal.' In my journal I paste images that inspire me, locations I want to use, quotes that speak to my heart and other ramblings. I find that journaling feeds my creative soul and keeps my love of photography alive. The journal entries are often a work-in-progress. Here I am sharing one journal entry that I've worked on over the past month. I started with a snap shot of a field I admired and the concept grew from there. I shopped for the perfect clothing and decided how I wanted the shots to look. The final images often take on a life of their own but I always appreciate the journey. I highly recommend starting your own inspiration journal!"

As a lifelong fine artist, I didn’t fall in love with photography until post-college. I was a graphic design major who landed a non-creative position in the industry. Upon searching for a creative outlet, and being the hopeless romantic that I am, I discovered wedding photography and was immediately hooked. I poured everything I had into learning the medium so that I could eventually start my own business, which happened a couple of years later in 2012 — also the year I was married.

I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Portland, but catering to clients across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. As a child, I never imagined that I would pursue photography. I didn’t even own a DSLR until I was 21! However, I remember the day I decided I wanted to learn the ins and outs of photography. I used my college textbook money to buy my first Canon Rebel from Craigslist. I was jumping up and down with joy and scratching my head at the same time because I knew photography would not be simply a hobby.

I was born and raised in Southern California, and recently moved to Oregon with my husband. We just had our first baby and are so in love! I’ve always had an interest in art and have always wanted to pursue a career in a creative field. I took my first photography class in high school, and fell in love. My parents bought me my first camera for graduation and I decided to get my degree in photography. Toward the end of college, I was blessed with an internship with a wedding photographer where I was able to turn my formal education into a practical business. After lots of shadowing, second shooting, and promoting my work, business started coming in and eventually evolved into what it is today!
