Seaside Styled Shoot

At the heart of It’s A Colourful World and Lindy-Ann and I’s collaboration is the desire help and encourage others, especially other entrepreneurs. We were practicing “community over competition” in Kuwait, before we had even heard about the incredible cultural shift that was happening stateside in the creative world, initiated by leaders like the Rising Tide Society and conferences like the Creative @ Heart Conference.

We felt that our gifts and talents were better served by lifting others up rather than tearing them down or being jealous of their success. This is not always easy, especially for creative souls. There are definitely days when one or both of us wonder if we are fulfilling our callings or if we should throw in the towel. On those days we turn to our mentors, families, and friends and they set us straight and remind us of our focus.

{Oh, how we appreciate you all!!}

We love being that for others! We have joyfully assisted in branding, developing concepts, refining visions, and generally being sounding boards for our friends pursing their callings. Let me tell you, brainstorming ideas and concepts over coffee maybe one of my favorite ways to spend a day! A close second, would be seeing those ideas come to life.

This past week I had the extreme pleasure of making one of those such chats happen and it was amazing! I spent a morning executing a styled product shoot for my jewelry designer friend, Ana….on the Mediterranean Sea with my gorgeous photography student and babysitter, Grace. Pinch me!

When I first met Ana, about a year and a half ago, she shared that she didn’t really know what her calling was. She knew she loved being creative, but she wasn’t sure where to focus. A few months later she was hit with loads of inspiration from her many walks on the beach collecting sea glass and started making jewelry. It is really exciting to see how much she has grown in both skills and demand. Hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed creating them!

For all you still seeking your callings and sometimes second guessing yourselves, we are cheering you on! Keep pursing your passions and, even if it just touches one life, one heart, then you have made a difference and it was worth the journey! Not to mention that there is only one of you and the world needs your unique perspective, don’t buy the lie that it doesn’t.

On that note, follow Treasures by Ana on Facebook and Instagram. It is always fun to see what she will come up with next, because, like you, each of her pieces is unique.
