This is a meet up with my peers and "colleagues" in a way. My photography has greatly improved over the years and I really enjoy taking pictures; but my role as a business person and as a pro-photographer, if I am perfectly honest, I still feel pretty new and at times insecure about it all. My husband says I just don't give myself enough credit; which is probably true but that doesn't change the way I feel.
I have been part of a Facebook group with this bunch for a little while now and they have all been nothing but nice and supportive. They all just seem like such amazing photographers, people I feel like I could learn so much from, people I wish I could be like.
So I will head out tonight, a little nervous, a little stary-eyed and definitely feeling like the new kid on the block.
But as I tell my kids again and again (okay mostly Lucas, Alex is fearless), don't let your fear keep you from missing out on fun things in life.
I am back- I wrote the first part before I headed to my meet- up. I am now home and I am glad I went. When I first got there I had moments of feeling like, why I am I here, I am so out of my league. As the night went on and the conversations began flowing and we all talked asking questions and giving advice, I felt much more at ease. I left the night feeling like I had made a few new friends, learned some new things and felt inspired to want to get out there and shoot more often.
So now once again, I can tell Lucas that good things happen when you don't let fear rule your life.
