those that inspire - 03

01 // samantha from samanthaheather - this girl! gosh!  words can't begin to explain how precious i find this lady. my long lost twin from across the ditch - i'm so happy i stumbled across this beautiful lady's instagram a couple of months ago. sam is such a gifted writer whose words transport you to another place, and her photography talent can only be explained by looking at the evidence itself. from chats about our dream photography kits to conversations about our other halves, this girl is a dream of a friend. please, please, please follow the links and have a look at her work for yourselves. you won't be disappointed.
sam, you inspire me more with every single post.

02 // mr & mrs globe trot - a husband and wife photography team, who spent the first six months of their marriage travelling the world and documenting it through their blog. these two have lived/are living out my dream - exploring as many corners of this world as possible, capturing what they see through their lens, and waking up to a new adventure every morning. their recent posts about banff, alberta (where my family live) have me itching to drop everything and go back there immediately!

03 // @thetessafrench and her husband @thejoefrench - a true and beautiful modern day love story, tessa and joe actually met through instagram! years later, they're now married and are rockin' the instagram world like no other! they are always taking photos of one another and make the rest of the world jealous with all the fun things they get up to together in little rock, arkansas. they've recently started their own business - the french adventures - and are now videoing weddings, which are truly i n c r e d i b l e.
i can only dream of having them fly to new zealand and videoing my wedding one day!

make sure to follow @thefrenchadventures to keep up to date with all their latest videos!

i'm going to try and post three new "inspirations" a week, in the hopes of sharing all the warm fuzzies that these creatives give me on a daily basis, and all the motivation that they provide me with to continue striving for the best in my photography.

if you feel like joining in, please let me know! 
i would love to follow along with you and see who inspires you!
