Tuesday Tip: Photography Mentor | Take Time to Remember Your Why

I’m pretty certain we all began this journey for a pretty good reason.  If you didn’t have a great reason when you first picked-up your camera, I imagine you have developed a solid “why” along your path.  And, if you haven’t- Let’s Chat!!

Your reason, Your WHY behind why you get up and go, everyday, into this crazy, fun-stressful, always changing environment is sometimes the only thing that will keep you going.  Like any other career on the planet, there are days that you are going to totally dig what you’re doing.  But, let’s be perfectly clear- There are going to be times that you want to just throw in the towel.


It is these moments, the most difficult moments, when the universe is telling you to rest.  And in these moments of rest, take the time to remember your why.  Possibly take time to restructure, rebuild, redefine your why.  Then use it as leverage for your success.

So cliche, but the greatest of people really do fail.  They become exhausted, frustrated, and sometimes lose their clear path.  But, the DO NOT give-up.  And, YOUR WHY makes that path clear again.

I have an affinity to all things light and airy.  I love color, sunshine, romance, and laughter.  I love inspirational quotes, meeting new people, flowers, and the idea of finishing a great book.  My go-to drink is coffee.  My outlet is dance.  And, aallllll of my free time is spent with my crew, including our German Shepherd, Gaia.
