Heyyyyyyyyy, I'm back! So its been a little while since my last post. Since the start of the new year I've been in a slight funk. I haven't really had the desire to pick up my camera much. It didn't seem like anyone was interested in taking photos anymore. I was really discouraged. I started to feel like I wasn't good enough. I'm still learning my craft and sometimes insecurity tries to sneak in and make me doubt my God given ability to create beautiful pictures. After putting my Magazine together and releasing it I kind of just pulled back on my business. I turned my focus to just being mom. I would go to work go home cook and repeat the same thing day after day. I had lost my drive. I had allowed what i didn't have overshadow the things that I did. I have an amazing circle of friend who push me to do better.
The two photos pictured above are from a recent practice shoot that I did with my sister-friend and fellow Girl Boss Nichole Murrell of C. Murrells Event Planning, LLC. We were sitting in her living room and I asked her if she would help me with practicing my headshots. Because she is the bomb.com she said yes! She called our other friend Jeanine to do her make up and ask if we could use her space and it was on from there. I was nervous and a bit insecure, because I wasn't 100% sure what I was doing. I said a quick prayer and we got to work. Needless to say the photos were bomb!
During the session Mikaela asked for her camera and started to snap her own pictures. It was in that moment I realized that quitting was not an option. Giving up and just not wanting to do anything was not an option. My child was watching me! Me not feeling like it or giving up makes it ok for her to quite and that's not ok. I don't know if she will be a photographer, but I do know that she will be great at whatever she does. I want her to know that with hard work and dedication anything is possible. It won't alsways be easy but it will be worth it.
