It took me all Summer to read a book. It was a very amazing and insightful book. It wasn't like it was boring it just took the back burner as the world around me evolved and changed and shifted into more than I could imagine. During this Summer I took a 9 day vacation to many locations in the southern half of the country, I enjoyed my family to the deepest and learned to let go as I completely unplugged my phone, Well nearly completely. I FOR REAL signed a lease and opened up a real life studio that I have put off doing for many years. I generally shoot outdoors and have no need to shoot inside into the winter months but shaking some things up and allowing for growth into new genres and different ways to look at things is always a good step. I shot nearly 100 sessions this Summer and met so many new families. Weddings hit a galore in the peak season and I have worked my butt off to make sure I am in the zone to hit the peak of this season full throttle. Through this I have learned more about myself. I am not the same person. I am not the same age. I am older but wiser for sure. BUT WOW. I have taken the time to sit back and realize what I am doing to really hit those check marks off on my to do list. AND NO this isn't a traditional blog post about who I photographed or what is new in my photography business but a revelation post about who I am and who I was when I began as a photographer. I set out with goals and I am finally proud of what I am doing and what I am producing. Verbally... well textually confirming that I am generally pleased is therapeutic and I challenge you to do the same. What are you doing? What do you want? What can you do to reach those goals?
Be proud of yourself, who you are and what you are doing. If you can't be change it!
Celebrate each step
Sincerely, wonderfully and with love,
