The path to self employment is long and difficult and sometimes it’s easy to feel like your dreams will never come true.
For the last year I have been on the emotional roller coaster of longing. Watching my budding photography business grow is wonderful but sometimes the path to success seems impossibly far.
I celebrate each victory, get giddy with every inquiry, and sigh with happiness after every wedding or boudoir session I photograph. But sometimes in those moments in-between, when a potential client chooses another photographer or my inbox hears nothing but crickets, I forget that this is an ever evolving journey. Sometimes there are speed bumps or miles of empty road…
But then my spirit lifts again as I remember that eventually I’ll see someone and they’ll see me and we’ll click instantly and make some magic together. I live for the moments when I get to connect with other artists. When they choose me to document their weddings or create succulent images of their beautiful selves, I feel inspired and alive and so very blessed to be living a life of purpose.
So for those of you who have trusted me with your special moments and vulnerable bodies, I thank you. Thank you for choosing me and helping me make this dream of mine grow.
