The story behind Little Voice:

"I'm hugely inspired by music. My stories, my photos, my ideas- they all come from it. So, one day on Flickr, I decided I was going to change my username. I wanted it to be something that inspired me and that means something, even if only to me. So I thought about it, and finally, I chose a name. It's the name of an album- an album that's not by my favorite artist and doesn't have my favorite song on it. It's Little Voice, Sara Bareilles' debut album. It is an album that I discovered in a car ride with my cousin where I found a connection between her. We liked the same songs. Little Voice was the first album that brought me to someone who had always been there, but didn't become as real to me as she did there.

 

Little Voice means a lot about who I am. Sometimes I feel so tired of being around people that I inch for time to be by myself and just hear me and me alone. Other times, I feel like I'm standing alone in a crowded room, that no one can see that I am somebody- someone special, someone who has talents, but just has a little voice, and can't seem to bring it out. Little Voice is me, and it will always be me. And I have to say I'm proud to be her." Samantha English, 2012

Sam, I have been waiting until you finished your 365 to write you a testimonial. May I start by saying that you are the most amazing person. You seem so genuine and down to earth and I hope we can talk more in the future. As for your photography, it is full of imagination and hope. You are capable of telling stories and portraying so many different types of emotion. I really admire that. You are an inspiration, not just to me, but I'm sure to a lot of other people and I can't wait to see what else you will achieve. You can go so far. - Ann (:

I am writing this testimonial because for a while now, slowly but surely, Sam has become my favorite photographer on flickr. Each of her photos has gorgeous lighing and scenery but I also feel connected to each one, like they're telling me bits and pieces of a story. I can tell which photos are hers because of her unique style. She thinks of ways to set up her photos that i wouldn't have thought of. (which is part of the reason i like to just sit and look at her photos for a long time.) Overall, i just love your photos dear xx
