At this point I don't think too many of us have seen the sun in a few days. And there's apparently even more rain on the way for the whole weekend. Yikes. I was a little glad about the break from shooting (for like a minute) so I could write but then I realized that, it's not good weather that keeps me from blogging, it's the writing style for blogging that keeps me from blogging. If I were just able to shoot from the heart and pour my soul into these blog entries the way I do my photographs then I might want to do it more. But there's this curse called SEO (search engine optimization) and when you write content on your website you need to do it in such away that Google can find it. Honestly that concept gets in my head and I lose all my writer's flow. I don't normally repeat myself three times or describe places by their map names. Nor do I describe my clients' sessions as map dots, but apparently for the best ranking in Google, I need to do that. Ugh. It's so not me. And thus, it was not just just my year of vertigo that kept me from sharing my work, it was honestly the way in which I was told I had to write for these blogs. It stole my flow, my heart, and my smooth thoughts and turned them into descriptive notes that felt like being back in school and hating that particular class. I can't tell you how long I have thought about this, and how to handle the sharing of photos without having to write like an encyclopedia. I think I might just forego the whole “getting found on Goggle” thing and just write about my sessions like I really would and then add some map-style information at the end. I don't want to lose my Google rankings but I can't stand this cloud that it makes me feel. Sorry but I am a very particular artist. Lol
So, this session took place in Cape May NJ last year. (<-----blogging info!! SIGH....) It was one of the weeks when I thought the vertigo had gone away so I made the drive by myself, one of the longest drives I made alone all summer long. I met this gorgeous couple at Higbee's Beach, it reminds me so much of a Hawaiian shore (or somewhere not in New Jersey in all honesty!) It's such a cool spot, I saw one of my friends, also a photographer, as we walked down the tropical pathway from the beach. I love to see other photographers out and about like that. You'd be surprised how friendly we all are with one another, we have a society of creatives here in South Jersey. Anyhow back to my night with this stunning couple... One location, all this magic. They were so adorable, on their “babymoon” in Cape May for a few days. It worked out like butter for us!
