Am I really good enough to do this?
If I’m not good enough right now, do I have the potential to be good enough?

Just do it anyway

Thoughts that run through my head all the time in regards to this creative/photography path I have apparently stumbled upon.  I find hope in those women I have found who’s story starts like this: “I loved to take pictures and then my friends/family started telling me how much they liked them and then asked me to take pictures for them and it just grew from there – and now here I am.”  I hear that and think – that could be me. I’m just at that inbetween spot. I’m still faking the confidence part and wobbling back and forth from I can really do this and be good and real and I have no idea what I’m doing and no one is going to like my work.  But thanks to the honesty and insight of women like JenLee and AmberBishop, I just keep moving forward with all of this.

And, on the lighter/nerdy side – I love this quote from the last Harry Potter movie:

“Every great wizard in history has started out as nothing more than we are now. If they can do it, why not us?’

Just substitute Photographer for wizard. =)
