Since I started this gig last October – I have tried to stay away from stalking the work of other photographers. Outside of the fact that I was trying to establish my own personal style – I also found myself getting discouraged as it showed me just how much I still had to learn. I just joined NAPCP and this morning I was checking out some of their blog posts and found the work of a local photorapher ( Jenny Watts Photography)..that familiar feeling of ”not being up to par” soon crept up , but this time , I quickly talked myself off of the ledge. Instead of being discouraged – I decided to feel inspired. I can get better…I can be better – I just have to keep shooting. So that is what I did – The sun had just rose so I quickly scooped up my muse dressed her in a cute outfit …threw on one of my husbands big ol’sweatshirts (so you couldn’t see that I didn’t even put on a bra yet) – and ran out the door in 5 minutes flat. In fact I was so inspired that I went out again that evening. I have to just keep shooting and someday I will be someone else’s inspiration to get better… to be better.
here are the fun ones from my evening shoot
