Charlotte has been very particular about her daily hairstyle lately. yesterday she insisted on 2 braids - and i was happy to do it for her. however, a temper tantrum ensued when i took my daily photo of the kitten. i’m talking alligator tears. so she also insisted that i take a picture of her braids instead. i asked her this morning if i could take a picture of the kitty today and she yelled “no! only i get to be in pictures!” 🤣 well at least i know she hasn’t got tired of getting her picture taken... yet. check out my stories for the picture of the cat that made this all happen #hollynicoletimekeeper_bnw

When i think of megan’s work, the first things that come to mind are gorgeous light, fantastic flare, and a feeling of freedom! we’ve had nothing but gray skies lately and we are currently under another winter storm watch, so i had to dig into my archives for my image for megs this week. not sure why i never shared this image i took in the fall. i think the universe knew i should save it for sweet megs ❤️ aside from her incredible and unique artistic side, i’ve been so blessed to get to know megs as a person and one of my dearest friends. i am so inspired by her ambition and creativity. and i’m so glad i’ve gotten to tag along on her creation of the amazing hello storyteller community and academy! love you, megs! you’re the best!

we are inspired daily by the amazing artists in this community. time and time again our minds are blown away by the creativity, magic, and raw talent these artists constantly share. welcome to the #youinspiremeloop - a group of fellow photogs recreating images that have inspired us by our fellow artists. •

this week we are inspired by @hello_meganboggs

up next is @polianadevane

check out this week’s loop tag #youinspireme_hello_meganboggs_2 to see more inspired images!
