I will admit I have been feeling defeated and just all around low when it comes to my photography. And although I know I am doing great. I know I have AMAZING clients and brides. I know that I LOVE what I do with a passion! There are still those moments I feel I don’t deserve it. I feel like the brides who book me, the clients who praise me, and the loved ones who have my back… Well I sometimes don’t feel like I deserve any of it.
But then there are those brides… Those clients that you dream about. Those ones that leave you reviews on your weddingwire account that make you cry tears of joy and thankfulness. Those clients who send you their loved ones because they love all you do and trust you to help their loved ones capture those memories that will last a lifetime. It’s those reviews and testimonials that make me LOVE what I do. That make me scream with excitement at the thought of traveling to capture another bride. That make me giggle when I am capturing silly moments of a client’s little one that remind me of my very own family.
So after these weeks of feeling defeated and low… I told myself I would be stepping back and allowing the Lord to lead me on the path he wants my photography to go. After all I know I can’t be anything, I can’t have the brides I dream about, I can’t capture loved ones, and families without our Lord. Because it is HE and ONLY HE who can help me accomplish my dreams.
This afternoon I signed on to my wedding wire account to see I had won an award. MY VERY 1st YEAR ON WEDDINGWIRE I HAVE WON THEIR ‘Couples Choice’ AWARD !!!
