I just agreed to shoot a wedding. Typing those words feels so surreal and yet so exhilarating at the same time. If you've known me for any substantial amount of time, you know that while I have a passion for photography, it's also one of the hardest things for me to commit to. I'm blessed to have a job that helps provide for my family so I've never felt the pressure to make it like you find in most creative's stories. Not that I need a traumatic life event, believe me, I don't. I've been feeling like my journey wasn't as worthy of notation as others well, because, I'm not even sure what my story is. But recently I uncovered I was saying no to my dreams, mostly out of fear. Fear that I wouldn't get published or that I wouldn't live up to what people thought I was. Well, I decided I'm not going to live a life afraid anymore and actually get my actions in line with my words. So I sent a text, to the beautiful couple below that let me capture their engagement, that said something along the line of I'm in, if you're in (it was a very Juno and Vanessa at the end of Juno, moment). I am so excited to step out on faith this year.
Is there something you've been wanting to pursue but you've been holding yourself back? You can let it go and conquer whatever mountain you decide to take down. I believe in you!
