Zoey, Through My Lens

I’ve never had any formal training in photography. In fact, my studies have been very far from it. I hold Bachelor degrees in Anatomy and Business and a Doctorate in Chiropractic. I am, however, a creative at heart. This, I’ve known since I was itsy bitsy. I’ve sewn my own dresses when I was about 10 years old and worn them to weddings. Thank goodness there are no known pictures of them out there because they can’t be anything but horrendous. Imagine this, a black & white houndstooth pattern fabric made into a skin tight (as possible) knee length with 3/4 sleeve dress. Skin tight? As if at 10 years old, I had any lady-worthy bumps.

When I started Le Zoe Musings, the goal was to share all things creative. How else to share visually with the world but through photography? So like anything else creative-related, I’ve self taught- sewing, working with Adobe Suite, photography, etc. Naturally, I gravitated toward a Creative Producer role at an online beauty company, Gloss48. Isn’t that how the Universe and its energy work? What you attract, comes to you. I’d like to think of myself as a multifaceted, Jane of All Trades kind of human.

Through LZM, I’ve also chronicled Zoey’s growth and milestones. This to me, isΒ  a huge bonus. After all, Zoey was the reason behind the inception (and name) of Le Zoe Musings. I took a break from the working world when I had her. It was very overwhelming to be a stay-at-home mom at the time and LZM was my creative outlet. I needed a break from mommyhood and all of its demanding duties.

Zoey’s first steps, kisses, solid-eating adventures, separation anxiety issues were all documented on this blog one form or another. She’s grown into a gorgeous, caring, wise, affectionate tiny lady.Β  She’s taught me how to be patient of all things. Every time she spills a drink, I would freak out (each spill cries for a separate freak out session). She’ll say “Mommy, it’s OK, it’s just a little spill mommy.” Although it’s not just a little spill, she’s right…it’s OK!

Here she is a few months ago hanging out in her aunt’s office. Just minding her own bidness while I capture her being a busy little bee…

And when she’s had enough of me stalking her, this is the expression she gives.

    Zoey is lucky to have a mother as attentive, creative and intelligent as you. You remind me of my own mother who is utterly wonderful and who stalked me with cameras (and also sketch books and watercolours) until I too made that enough-is-enough face! Trust me, she’ll appreciate it later πŸ™‚
