One Take: Love of Life, A Study

In which we gave Little Rock photographer Stephanie Parsley a Polaroid, eight frames of film and one take to get the shot.

I KEPT going back and forth over the course of a week—I was like, What do I love more than any other thing? Because I could easily be like, Photography! But there are other things in my life that I love more than that, too. My animals, the little details in my home or music. My chickens. I think that I’ve just found a balance somehow that I’ve never really had. I just moved into this house. Work is going so great, and I’m able to travel and do all the things that I love and be able to provide for us. Michael and I just moved in together, so love life is awesome, there’s balance there. I really love my life right now. That’s how I’ve especially been feeling here lately. It’s just been, like, I’m going in the right direction.
