Blogging for a reason!
First of all, I haven’t been faithful to my blogs & blogging. Let me admit that most times I just don’t want to. I figured “who’s going to read this?”
Then recently someone messaged me to say that my blog inspired them to pursue photography, and that my simple words was the motivation! My Blog!? That’s when I get the most inspired, and begin to write blogs like this one. I have never pretended to be good at what I do. I don’t even consider myself an expert. Simply speaking, I a mom who LOVED taking photographs of my kids & suddenly I realized that I was half decent at it.
Learning the technical aspects of what I do has been a journey full of frustrations, enlightenment & excitement. There has been days where I just wanted to throw in the towel. However, when I look back at my experience, growth & new relationships, it’s worth all the work & time.
Now I am Blogging For A Reason! I want to encourage anyone who has a little spark in whatever it is, that you keep feeding it until it turns into a fire. There will be days where you will say “I give up.” Those days are just momentary.
Some Good Advice
The biggest advice to myself & anyone who may be reading is “DON’T COMPARE YOURSELF TO ANYONE ELSE.” Due to that, I would spend so much time self doubting because I thought my work wasn’t as good as those in my industry. It wasn’t until I STOPPED paying attention to my doubt & started paying attention to my work, that my own true style started to unfold.
Lastly, even if you are doing something for fun, or to start a business, do it to your best ability. As a result of giving it all you have, it creates beautiful work. Inspire yourself in everything you see! Pull over the car when you see a picture perfect spot & click that camera!
