*So* Great

It was *so* great. SO great. The Opening Reception for my first photography show (with the talented Sarah Gervais) this past Friday was truly one of the best experiences of my life. I felt incredibly happy and alive. From the moment the doors opened at 5:30pm, people filled the gallery. Friends, neighbors, colleagues, students, and even STRANGERS came to see our photography! For 2.5 hours, we had a packed house of folks taking in our creative work. It felt fantastic to share some of my very favorite photographs, enlarged and all dressed up in their mats and frames. I felt proud of my work. I felt an internal alignment, a type of synergy, a resounding “yes.” It was as if I could start to really believe I am on my true path of expressing myself and listening to my artistic desires.

Sarah and I, soaking it all in!

As if all that positivity and juicy goodness wasn’t enough, I sold some of my work! I was beyond excited and even more grateful. It makes me happy thinking about those photographs living in someone else’s home, bringing them some joy. The notecards that I gave you a sneak peek of last week were also a big hit. Like I said, *so* great!

And now without further ado…my Esty shop is OPEN! I have a new little link on the right hand side of the blog to get you there, too. There are notecard sets for sale currently, and soon I’ll be adding more of my photographs in larger sizes. I hope you check it out! If you don’t see the combination of photographs you’d love as a notecard set, or if you’re interested in other photos for enlargements, I’m happy to make a custom order. Just let me know!

    Congratulations Meghan! All of your hard work definitely paid off, and you had some truly beautiful photos (I think the bowl of cherries was my favorite, with the curtain/shadows a close second). Good luck with this “winter light” and Photo IV. I would love to see your presentation at the end of the quarter, and let’s do a photo shoot/get together in the near future (maybe when it’s a little warmer out?:)
