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!"

Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping. My road to becoming a photographer isn't a very poetic or adventurous story: I was a painter and had always pursued the thought of going to school for fine art. I took an introduction to film photography class in my senior year of high school and just fell in love with the medium. I've pursued my own photography business ever since and am still shooting with film!

One thing we love about living in Portland is the strong emphasis on sustainability and a genuine concern for the environment. The natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest has obviously inspired locals to care and take action, to protect the lushness surrounding them. The name of the game here is conservation and preservation - with multiple trash/recycle/compost bin options in every restaurant and coffee shop, to chicken coops adorning backyards aplenty. We’re so pleased to see this positive trend hit the design and technology spheres, as hard copies become a thing of the past and the Cloud becomes the Internet’s new storage bin.

I’m Cheyenne, and I’m a body positive, self love boudoir photographer based in Philadelphia. I love my mama, my puppy girl Penny, my babe, and cheesesteaks. When I was 13, I picked up my first camera. Two years later I started a little business photographing families, babies, and a very tiny wedding! I continued to shoot through my time in art school and eventually decided to fully dive into creating a well rounded business for myself. I left college after my junior year and worked my butt off to build up my business.
