I love photography, but I hate marketing and feared submitting. Submitting means being told “yes” or “no” and I personally don’t want to hear “no”. It’s scary putting images you personally love out there and being told… nope… we don’t want it. This year, I ventured out and submitted to Lemonade and Lenses June 2013 Cover Competition and won… it was an amazing feeling and with it came a huge boost of confidence. Since then, I have been featured on the L&L site, been published in The Senior Style Guide, won a spot in SSG Hot 100 Images and just learned I will have an image published in Beyond the Wanderlust’s 2014 calendar.
WOW! It’s been an incredible year. I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to do something I love and overcome my fears. I continue to struggle to find time. Marketing and submitting is TIME CONSUMING…. crazy time consuming… but I truly love this work and have the most AMAZING clients!!! Thank you.
