As Busy Season Winds Down | Life of Something Minted | Seattle and PNW Wedding Photographer

With the end to a busy wedding season drawing near, my heart is full. From a cross country move to sticking with the decision to rise at 5:30 a.m. twice a week to make the most of my morning person productivity, to making the decision to narrow my focus in photography to better serve my brides, I feel happy and more balanced for it.

This season has taught me that out of all the things you can't control, the one thing you can is your will to keep trying. As a creative, this is easy to say but often intimidating to see through. With so many other great photographers out there, you may wonder how you stand out in the crowd? I'm here to tell you that just being yourself sets you apart. Believe in that and trust your instincts!

That harsh midday light, it's yours to harness or let get the best of you -keep trying. Balancing the tasks of updating your website to keep content fresh, managing social media accounts and an organized inbox even if you may not be a tech wizard -keep at it. Difficult is by no means impossible, but that doesn't mean it may not feel like it. I want you to know you aren't alone in your journey. We may be at different places in our careers as photographers, but we've all started somewhere.

Know that everyday you have a choice. A choice to see & even create an opportunity to grow from or watch it pass you by. Take up those opportunities and always be ready to learn and to teach; we all have something to offer.

"It is she who listens to the rest of the world who fails. And it is she who has enough confidence to define success and failure for herself who succeeds." -Sophia Amoruso
