Every journey begins somewhere and end somewhere. That’s just how it works, right?! Only difference is some journeys begin because they were planned with an end goal in mind, whereas the sincerestoryteller began for the sake of the journey itself. There was never a set goal that we had to achieve a certain number of things in a certain amount of time. It was all an open-ended arrangement where sky was the limit to inspire and be inspired. Having said that it would be amiss if I didn’t also add that the Journey so far has been absolutely amazing. Sure, it has had its share of ups and downs, but that is a part of life. Setbacks make you stronger. Period! They help you grow, evolve and be stronger than you thought was possible.
For us being a photographer in short means that you get into the habit of seeing the world through the lens. Every corner has to be frame-ready & every layout has to be shot perfect. And that’s just how this beautiful journey began. As much as it hurts us to even re account the lockdown of 2020 due to COVID-19, and breaks our hearts when we hear of all the hoards of people that lost their livelihood, we cannot complain. Because it was the being trapped at home that lead to the @sincerestoryteller being born. Being an aesthete and an artist Instagram for me used to be a creative outlet. A place to inspire and be inspired. Up until April of last year we had never imagined that it would someday be such a huge part of my profession. With the imposed quarantine and the whole world being stranded at home with nowhere to go everyone turned to social media. Businesses and creators alike. And it has been a total whirlwind romance with the gram since.
In the matter of a year, we have gone from a family of 10k to that of 40k and counting. And I am so extremely humbled. It may not look like it but the standard has been set very high for aesthetic grids and creative content. It is not enough to just post and ghost anymore. You have to show up and give your 100% every since day. And I aint complaining, because for the first time I feel like I have found my calling. It doesn’t feel like work when you love it so da** much. It was like walking straight into what I was created to do. So, I would say take a leap of faith, if there is something you have been wanting to try, do it. It is a failure only if you fall and don’t get back up. And the rush of soaring after the leap is a feeling like no other.
