This blog/site has been so quiet for a very, very long time and I realize that very few people may actually ever even read this as it HAS been so quiet but I wanted to reach out there and explain what has been going on! I often think about getting back into blogging but the truth is, does anyone even read blogs anymore?! I actively post on my Instagram account and to me, most days, thats really enough…
I started shooting sessions back in 2009 with no real direction of what I wanted out of my photography. I even attended an amazing workshop in the Fall of 2014 with none other than THE Joy Prouty (love that lady!) and I left feeling completely inspired by what was to come. I took the Winter off to think about where I wanted my photography to take me and honestly, I never really got much clarity in that down time either. I am so inspired by photographers and nothing moves me more than I well shot photo… I still am unclear about what I want to do with this passion of mine but I do know that I am currently enjoying this chapter in my life where I simply shoot for myself and shoot from the heart. My life, my family, our farm, our garden and our animals is what makes me happy and truly inspired. Photographing and telling the stories of our life here in the country is something I want to pursue further and for that reason I am excited to tell you about some very big changes that will be occurring here next month!
I have made the decision to combine my two websites (photography & farm life) and upgrade it into one amazing site designed by a designer whom I am so very excited to be working with in September! The farmgirl diaries website will no longer be activated as I focus solely on the new site that will be simply.. www.dawncosgrove.com. I wanted a site that was an extension of my Instagram account, a place where those that follow me could come to find out more about the photographer behind the lens, read my stories, buy my prints and possibly even collaborate with me for future projects. But don’t worry, what has become my online journal of sorts, the farmgirl diaries.. isn’t really going away! My new site will feature a brand new blog interface that will feature fresh new photos and words..a blank slate if you will for a brand new website!
You guys I cannot wait to show you what we will be working on..a website that finally feels like home to me. I want you to come and feel like you are right here on our farm, cozying up to the images that drive this passion of mine. I don’t yet know where my photography will take me in the future..I guess only time will tell! Maybe someday it’ll all be combined into a book of my photos and stories for you to read in your own homes, maybe it will lead to freelance photography of farms, animals and country living..who knows! But whats around the corner is going to be so much better than anything I could ever imagine so hold tight…amazingly beautiful things from this little slice of the good life are on there way to you soon!!
