This time of the year is always weird for me

 

On the one hand, I’m not quite ready for Christmas yet (can you believe that’s only 1.5 months away?) but on the other hand, I’m quite ready for the December slow down. It doesn’t help either that here on the Western hemisphere, it’s dark by 4PM. Sometimes (note: most of the time) I wish we would just get rid of daylight savings completely, that extra hour gained on 1 day is not enough to offset the extra hour(s) of darkness. It also makes no sense to me why only parts of Canada have daylight savings--Saskatchewan doesn’t, for one.

As with the fading daylight, my dressing tendencies are going darker too. If it hasn’t been apparent from this latest set of photos, I’ve been drawing lots of inspiration from black-and-white photography.

If it hasn’t been apparent from this latest set of photos, I’ve been drawing lots of inspiration from black-and-white photography. Last year I went full on grey and cool toned for the colder weather, but this time around I’m determined to maintain a certain degree of faded warmth to my photos.

Since I’ve been doing this “influencer” thing for a bit over a year now, I’ve been trying as of late to find new ways to grow and challenge myself creatively. We’ll see how that pans out over the next little bit. I’m always talking about consistency but it still feels just out of my grasp. It’s a lot more apparent when you look at my Instagram feed how scattered my editing and photography styles can get. Sometimes I feel like I’m just lost… I’m getting closer though, I think.

But for now, I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that we stay above zero degrees.
