The Traveling Tribe ~ Embracing Creativity
It started one place and over time evolved into something different...something unique....something beautiful. We weren’t art students, had no formal training but we had a desire. We had a desire to tell our story....to create a sense of legacy for our children. To tell our story required the capturing and retelling of moments...both the ordinary and extraordinary moments of life....birthdays, travels, big events and simple days playing cars on the floor. We each approached this endeavor with a different medium...he with his camera and her with paper.
As we engaged this journey we soon unlocked a seemingly endless supply of creativity which soon expanded to include others around us. As we developed our craft and abilities we soon found ourselves helping others to tell their stories as well. Friends would gather, enjoy tea and scrapbook pages about their family. Photo shoots would be done to capture the love and passion of a newlywed couple...or the joy of a newborn baby. Each endeavor seemed to lead to new opportunities and along the way a style was born.
We recognize that we’ve come far in a short period of time....but that we’re also just at the beginning of the journey. There’s so much we’ve yet to learn...so much about ourselves that we’ve yet to discover. We’re creative beings and as we travel and live around the world we exist to help others embrace and tell their stories....we are the Traveling Tribe.
As we each continue on this journey of creativity we’d love to know your story as well. How did you start on your creative process? What motivates you to create? Where would you like to be creatively in a year....two years?
