The way people hold each other, look at each other, it sets me on fire. I can give the same posing instructions to one hundred different couples but each one will make me feel something different. Because they all love differently. I can't express enough how much I love that. It's the number one reason I do what I do. Love is beautiful.

Boyfriend + Rainbow Magic at tonight's shoot.
This evening was a dream. My friend styled this shoot and did all the planning so all I had to do was show up, play in the lavender and direct these two angels that didn't really need much direction at all. Thank you so much Alyona! A shoot just for fun was exactly what I needed.

I felt so many things as I watched the sunset tonight. And if words were my strength, I would write the loveliest caption that would explain exactly how I felt in the most poetic way. Were it possible to see the color of someone's energy and throw that up here as a caption, then you'd feel me. But until then, here are my late night ramblings about how I felt so many beautiful feelings but don't have the language to properly express them. If anyone else feels the same, let me know I'm not alone. Xo
Cuddling is always a good idea.
Came home from the workshop last night and slept 14 hours. Holy cow! I'm recharged! Who's ready for round 2?! Big thank you to everyone that came out. I fell in love with you all and miss you already. And to our amazing team @pictureline @summertelesco @canonusa @studioelevn @keri_galb
Taking a break from workshop prep to document this moment of clarity in my life. I'm emotional and my head is so full of information it feels like it's going to explode. For almost 10 years I've uploaded cards or scans after a shoot and looked at my images with the feeling like something was missing but couldn't figure out what it was. So frustrating. Was it my color, light, what? I was searching everywhere for answers but kept coming up empty. I would look at work from the greats and feel SO inspired but then look at my own, and feel like I didn't have all the answers. But why? I teach photographers. I know this stuff inside and out. Why do I feel this way? It took almost 10 years, and tears, and wanting to quit a lot, and did I say frustration? But I finally figured it out. And in the process I created a blueprint, a formula if you will, to help you figure out what's missing from your own work. To help you have a clear path, focus, and light yourself up with the images you take from here on out. It feels so dang good to finally swap out frustration for joy and drive, and I want you to feel the same. If this is a conversation that would be beneficial for you right now then please come join me this Saturday, August 5th. Yes, we will be talking about light. But not just in “this is good light and this is bad.” but more exploring it in the way that will create YOUR specific dream images, along with so many other factors. Which will most likely be different than mine. And that’s good! Thanks to Pictureline, the cost for the entire workshop is just $195 which is insane. That’s less than the price of a styled shoot! Telling ourselves that we want to learn and explore is one thing, but scheduling the time to make it happen is another. I hope to see you there for some really meaningful conversation, self exploration, experimentation, and great company. Xo- Camilla Link in bio.
