Those of you who are into crystals, have you ever seen a crystal from across a room and just knew without a doubt that this one was meant for you?! That's how I felt with this particular Carnelian when I saw it at @crystalbluel5p
in Little 5 Points. The pattern on it is so unique and reminded me of the work that my hairdresser, @danielmasonjones
in Johns Creek, did on this most recent iteration of my hair. (Swipe to see)
The brilliant crimson red... a darkness... and then the light part dazzlingly cutting into it all, reminding me that there is always a light in the dark if you look for it. We all have a light inside of us! Carnelian is a stone that represents that powerful inner fire of passion and creativity!
Those of you who take my yoga classes know that I love to theme my classes... Obviously as a photographer, too, visual media has a huge storytelling element... but I was surprised to learn that even hair can tell a story too! That's what Daniel did here, and it was an extremely meaningful one for me, personally.
Connect with your clients. See how you can tell a story with your work (whatever it may be) and make what you do special and meaningful. Sometimes simple is the most appreciated and appropriate approach — but other times, it can be a moving experience for both provider and client, to go all out. In those cases, ask yourself where you can go beyond the norm? How can you set yourself apart? And when it happens, just enjoy the bright, brilliant energy that follows.
