What does it mean to be human? What matters in a life? What matters in a death? How to love? How can we be of service to ourselves and to the world?
“I honour the place within you where the entire universe resides.I honour the place within you of love and light and peace and truth,Where when you are in that place in youAnd I am in that place in meThere is only one of Us.” I have always thought that the moment when you realise that you love someone is when you see the eternal child in them awaken. Capturing those fleeting moments of joy, despair, rawness, tediousness, that beautiful unguarded moment that shines raw with unflinching verisimilitude, has left an imprint on my heart so real that only a metaphysical kinship could endure it. Snapshots of things that were real once, and only once in an instant because before it had been different and after it all changed. The ordinary is revealed as the extraordinary.Photography has been one of the most powerful intrinsic human motivators to me. The moment at which my subject and our environment are in harmony with one another creates a symbiosis so powerful, definable by being completely indefinable, that it can only be called ‘love’.As children, fearless, it was our nature to jump into a pool before we could swim. We were and are still dreamers in motion, drenched in our passion. We don’t forget what we learn in these situations of high adrenaline. And here we are again. The dreamweavers have let go of the shore and are swimming towards the middle of the ocean. Our heads are above the water, our eyes are open. We see who is with us, and we celebrate. Gratitude, forgiveness, resilience is what our tribe is made of.I hope this blog to be more than just a canvas for the paint splatter thoughts of my mind. I hope to present a portrait of the running question, ‘how can we be of service to ourselves and the world?’, and of course, intertwine bright splashes of visuals, thoughts and ideas. We are all reflections of one other, each with a new lesson to give and receive. So let us work together, let us narrate and share stories, inspired, in spirit.
We are all born with a light within us. A light that burns brightly when we are manifesting our greatness, a light of grace that can change a life, a light so mighty that it can offset the trajectory of the ZeitGeist.
A coined name deriving from Ama (mother in many languages, water in Cherokee) , and -luna (moon in Latin), Amaluna was created of the idea that we are all the moon; we illuminate eachother in the deep dark, and we are here to raise one another up, in so raising ourselves.
I am a storyteller. My mediums are photography and writing. I seek to serve others who promote a positive way of living. I offer brandography shoots (branding and photography) for people seeking to tell their story and create a brand that lasts. I offer portraiture, headshots, events, weddings, retouching services, and one to one tutoring and workshops in retouching. I have worked with holistic health professionals, chefs, actors, musicians and corporate clients. I enjoy blogging about the people I shoot and the evolutionary movements they are making for us all.
I am also a yoga teacher. and thai yoga masseuse. I am certified to teach vinyasa, womb and fertility, pre and post natal, baby, toddler, kids, partner and community yoga! Yoga for the people, as I like to call it. I am really passionate about sharing this great love of mine with all that desire to know.
I look forward to seeing you.
