“Lady, I don’t know you! Why are you taking my picture?” - Lucy. The truth is I didn’t know Lucy, or her parents. Not sure if this family knew it but they were my first real clients. Real as in they weren’t my friends, or my family, or a friend of a friend. On my way to their house I had a moment where I thought, ‘This is crazy, I’m going to a total stranger’s house.’ I was nervous but am SO thankful to her parents for trusting me with their sweet baby girl. If you would have told me a year ago that I would be photographing important moments in strangers lives I would have thought you were crazy! But I am and I’m so thankful for everyone who has trusted me thus far. And you know what, I’m so proud of myself for not listening to my fear or doubt. So here’s a little reminder to get out there and chase your dreams!
