Sneak Peek: Nantucket Editorial Shoot

Last night at around 11pm, we put the last of the light stands in the car and hugged the last of the attendees at our Atlanta Lighting Intensive workshop goodbye. As I got in the passenger seat, fastened my seatbelt, and closed the door...we also closed the door on a two and a half month streak of go, go, go that has been the craziest yet of our career. We counted it up recently, and since June 22nd we've only slept in our own bed 9 times. We've lived out of swapping suitcases, let the laundry pile up, and eaten more bad airport food than any one person should ever endure. And we've done it all while reminding ourselves often that in doing so, we were out there living the dream.

But as Justin pulled the car out of the parking lot he announced, It is now 11:15pm eastern standard time, and WE are officially on vacation. For the next week and a half or so, we will be laying really low and recovering from the insanity that has been our year so far. I plan on sleeping in, laying in the hammock a lot, getting in some beach time before summer is totally gone, and in general slowing life down. Because just like seasons of hard work are really important, so are seasons of rest. I look forward to doing all the little things we take for granted...things like grocery shopping, doing laundry, and putting our clothes away in actual drawers. Going on long walks, working on the house, and not having to dig your shampoo out of a suitcase before you can shower. I look forward to being home.

Because what we're realizing, is that this too is living the dream.

So wherever you are right now, whether it's a season of hard work or a season of rest, my hope is that today you will join me in stopping....to be grateful for it.

**It seems only fitting that on this, the day that we're winding up this crazy streak of an adventure, we should show you a sneak peek from a shoot we did at the very beginning of it when we were out on Nantucket. We worked on this editorial shoot with the amazing Dawn Kelly of Soiree Events, and I am so excited to say that it is going to be picked up for publication later this year! We'll have to hold off on showing you the full shoot until then, but for now here's just a little sneaky peek!









And finally, a HUGE congrats to the winners of our recent contests! Kerri Deatherage is the winner of our $25 Starbucks card & Laura Gordon is the winner of our $50 Adorama card!!! Congrats guys! Just shoot us an email at justin@justinmarantz.com and we'll get you all set up!
