What Am I Doing?
Sometimes, that seems like a VERY good question.. What does my passion as a photographer have to do with my passion for fitness? Why is my Instagram feed a blend of both of my worlds?
I have a love for fitness and the priority I give to staying in shape and even pushing myself to develop my physique to higher levels. Thanks to kicking butt in the gym, I have incredible stamina when I photograph LONG wedding days. I make a point to go to the gym prior to getting ready for a wedding. I am on the go from 4:30AM until midnight, without skipping beat. You'll see me on the dance floor with the bridal party and guests when I'm done shooting, because I like to take part in the experience that makes weddings unique events. I've spent all day with the wedding party having fun, laughing and joking, so why not end the night with a few dances and a toast to the happy couple?
I do this for my AMAZING children, Rachel and Sean. They will always be my reason for life, and my reason to love. I want them to look to me as an example on how to age with class, energy and beauty. I live my life knowing that they are watching me, even when I'm not aware of it, and I must be a prime example to them. Recently, I've had a very good reason to "up my game" in that area. After 42 years with Diabetes, I want my children to see that I ALWAYS controlled it, that it NEVER controlled me.
In 2015, I went on a quest to be the best I could be, physically, mentally and spiritually. I have stayed as humanly consistent as possible. I'm making a strong commitment to changing my way of eating to be more along the lines of a Keto Diet (low carb, high fat) This year, there are more gains to be had; deeper relationships with everyone in my life, a healthier, leaner body, and a richer spiritual view of my life and my chosen path.
In the weeks ahead, I will be blogging about my journey to further push myself in all areas of my life. I hope you'll come along for the adventure. Please leave me a comment or ask a question. Follow me on Instagram where I post both my photography and my personal side. Cara's Instagram
