Growing up, my daddy was full of one liners that he lived by. One of his most known quotes was "the music is in you." Daddy LOVED to dance, a trait we most definitely share. Anyone that spends any time with me quickly learns that I love music and to dance even if I am the only one in the room moving. I believe music can take you back to a specific memory, whether that is a happy or sad moment in time, that memory floods back as though it is happening all over again.
I tell you this because, I can't edit without music. I choose music that often makes me emotional but I pour those emotions into how I edit my images. Sounds bizarre, but it is true. When I am editing a birth story, each image is full of a flood of emotions: exhaustion, new love, and sometimes sadness. By putting my mind in that emotional state, I can do justice to what the images deserve. I thought it would be fun to put together a list of some of my favorites songs to edit to.
I am constantly adding to me "editing" playlist but have several that always seem to put me in the right space to edit my galleries. If you are a lover of music like myself, glance over this list and maybe you will find a new favorite to add to your rotation.
