Wow, it’s been WAY to long! I know it’s been awhile since I’ve written but I needed a bit of a hiatus. Don’t get me wrong I love writing and putting my thoughts down on paper. For a bit there though it turned into a second job, I was stressing myself out trying to write everyday. Between my actual job and what I was forcing myself to write it was just not a good combo.
Anyways though, since I’ve been gone I’ve been doing lots of thinking and lots of creative writing, (Yes, exactly like you use to do in elementary school, when the teacher would read you a sentence and you would have to write for an hour on that topic.) went on an incredibly amazing R&R trip and found a new burning fire within me! I have so much to tell you!!
For the longest time I can remember all the way back to college, I’ve had a crazy travel bug! Wanting to explore and discover as much as I could, I mean there is a whole world out there why stay in one spot for your whole life right? I always say we only have one life, so you better make the most of yours! Cory and I just got back from the most relaxing vacation in Kauai, Hawaii we stayed in Hanalei and it was absolutely gorgeous! It’s not called The Garden State for nothing! Besides a little rain every now and then we got lots of sleep and relaxation, great food, and I got some great photographs!
What this trip has really done for me is remind me how much I need travel in my life. Sitting at a desk job everyday 9-5 is not something that fits my lifestyle and I’m ready to change it! I’m so excited to announce that I will be creating my own photography business! Alexana Denise will be my new brand and once I get everything up and running (hopefully within the next year!) I will be able to quit my day job and travel, take photos and conduct photo shoots for customers including weddings, proposals, engagements, elopements and more! Starting my own business is a little scary but so necessary, people all the time say “Make sure you do what you love, because you’ll probably end up doing it the rest of your life”. I know that this is what I’ve been needing in my life and I’m ready to take that jump!
Both my Alexana Denise blog and Instagram will be a base for my photography and more of a travel and leisure brand. I will soon be creating a website for my photography as well and I’ll be taking on as many clients as possible to build up a portfolio. I will create a brand for myself as I work on opening my business!
I really can’t wait! Hope you guys enjoy as well check out my post from Hanalei and the photos that go with it!!
