I love taking pictures. I love creating the shot, I love capturing the beauty, the emotion, the moment. When I prepare for a photoshoot my mind is racing with all of these beautiful scenes, how its going to go, what I am going to do. I talk a mile a minute and it is all jumbled. I love it. That is what I see when I read those first two sentences. PHOTOGRAPHY.
It is so scary for me to put myself out there. Because I think what if people stop wanting me as a photographer, what if my clientel never grows. What if I fail and people watch me fail. What if people laugh at me and think I am not talented. What if people talk behind my backs and think look/am ridiculous taking pictures, what if people think I am a freak. What if they role their eyes at me when I am not looking.
BUT what if my passion becomes my job. What if I make it and become a successful photographer and actually make a living out of it. What if I become so successful that I have photographers from around the world, that I teach. What if I am so successful I book years in advance! That is worth it. Putting your passion out there is so scary. Sometimes beyond frightening (ask my husband, sister and best friend, I am constantly seeking approval from them) But the thought of having my wildest dreams come true... makes my stomach flutter, and floats me up on cloud 9.
