Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.⚖️ w/ @arianna_arya

Hello beautiful people. I’d like to re-introduce myself for any new followers. My name is Rosemary 🌻 When I was 12 years old I picked up a camera and started making silly music videos with with my friends. As I became a teen, I gave photography a try instead. These easy-going photoshoots from 2012-2014 are some of the memories I hold closest to my heart. Sometimes I wonder if I even knew or cared what a career was at that point in time. And time... well it moved at a different pace back then. And we’d bike for miles on Sunday afternoons to find locations that would romanticize our little town in Western New York that we so deeply dreamed of escaping. We worked with brands that trusted in us and gave us the confidence to we make ourselves & the world around us into art. Social media was still blooming & we were still finding who we were and would become. I think we still are finding that. When I was 18 I moved out west looking for my place in this world. Four years later and my soul has come full circle. I feel closer to the 16 year old version of myself than to any of the people I have been in recent years. We are ever changing & ever growing which is one of the most inanely beautiful parts of the human condition. 6 years later, I have come to realize my place in this whirlwind of life. Amidst this time of receiving hateful messages from jealous people who hide behind the security and anonymity of the internet, I bring myself back to center. I am an artist, I always have been, and no one can or ever will take that ability away from me. I am a runner, a writer, a lover, a friend, a sister, a daughter, and about to be a college graduate. While I am proud of who I am & who I am becoming, it’s always important to look back on what shaped me years ago. These memories are what shaped my goals & dreams during some of the wildest, & most beautiful coming-of-age years of my life. The woman I hope to become is reading this caption a couple of years from now smiling. I am who I am & I am exactly who I have always wanted to be.
Much love to the women who started this journey with me & to the brands who believed in a teenager with a camera from Rochester, NY. 💫

I love creating with this amazing shapeshifting witch. They inspire me.
I am pretty much always down to shoot and create for affordable prices and some times trade if it benefits me. Contact at me if you like my work and have an idea.
