2016 | A year of acceptance

Each year I am blown away by my clients, their willingness to allow me to create memories that will be forever kept and passed down to the wee ones they are squeezing and tickling in each of those images. Sometimes this passion is so strong that it hurts to think about and makes my heart heavy.

truth bomb in 3…2…1…

This year was an incredibly difficult season for me mentally. Having anxiety and being introverted is tough in this craft and I have definitely struggled this year with balancing the constant overwhelming feeling of doubt and my fear of emails and replying to people via social media – please tell me i’m not the only one that is terrified of emails?!?!? For some reason it almost seems shameful that I let my anxiety win but with 2016 drawing to a close I have taken initiative to better myself and my business this coming year by choosing my love for photography and creating emotive images for my clients over listening to that horrible inner voice that tells me i’m not worth it.

I am greater than my fear.

15 minutes before we started shooting, it was literally hailing and so super crappy out. But mountain weather was on our side and with the skies opening wide, the session turned out beautifully. Thank you Stacy, Cory and sweet little Harper...you three were seriously the cutest!
