Do you ever have moments in your life that something just goes off like a light bulb and you think, "Oh my word! Why did I just now realize this??" That's an aha moment. Well my photography aha moment came this summer while I was taking Jasmine Star's Wedding Photography Bootcamp course. As a matter of fact, I had more than one of those moments, but the one that I cherish the most is when she said, "It's ok just to be you! Don't compare your work to other photographers, there is only one you and no one's work will be like yours...there is a reason clients call you to photograph them!" A--HA!!! Being ME is good! I guess, when I was comparing my work to other photographers work, I was searching for my own style. What?? I already HAVE a style! Jasmine had me define my style in three words and I chose, FUN, BRIGHT, AND NATURAL....and that's how I'd been photographing all along!! Now, I am able to concentrate on just being me and developing and improving my own style.
If you haven't guessed already, I LOVE Jasmine Star!! I learned so much this summer and she has helped me in my business tremendously! I'll leave you with another Jasmine quote, "If you are comfortable, then you aren't working hard enough!"
Thanks so much for my AHA moments Jasmine! You are awesome!
