Some days I get frustrated.....thoughts fill my mind....and I feel like quitting!  It's hard to be a full-time mom and small business owner.  It's easy to get caught up in thoughts of inadequacy when there is so much incredible talent out there.  I have to remind myself that this is MY photography journey and the growth I have experienced is something to be proud of.  I shot my very first wedding on a Canon Rebel T1i and one borrowed 24-70 lens.  I didn't know what RAW was and I went through everything by the seat of my pants.  I was ambitious and driven, but scared to death.  I'm sure people made fun of me.   But one thing is for sure.....I never gave up!  I have wanted to quit so many times.  I've never been to a workshop.  I've never been formally trained.  I have done everything I could to learn photography.  I will always continue to learn.   So, I'm speaking to those of you who just started.  NEVER GIVE UP!  Never let someone tell you that you're not good enough.  Do not compare yourself to others and get down on yourself.  This is your journey....no one else's!  Here are some pictures of my growth.  Don't laugh ;)
