I love the beginning of a new year!!! While I don’t make resolutions, I do a lot of goal setting and thinking about things I want to improve in different areas of my life. It never hurts to start your year off with a little business boost and pat on the back, either! So I’m going to take a short minute today to share something pretty cool.
A couple months ago I decided to stick myself out there and enter a contest for senior photographers – a “Top 25 Up and Coming Senior Photographer” contest put on by The Twelfth Year. Entering stuff like that is scary to me. I am just sensitive in general, and super sensitive about my work, too! Well, I just went ahead and went for it.
While I am definitely not new to photography (this January kicks off my 9th year!), I have not exclusively focused on seniors for most of that time. I really began honing in on this genre 2 years ago, and just fell head over heels for it. So I was still eligible as “up and coming”.
The answer is always “no” if you never ask, or never try, and I’m so glad I did! Being included in this group of Top 25 is such an honor and one that I feel so flattered, encouraged, and thrilled to be a part of. There is amazing talent in this group from all over the country!!!
So yay for throwing caution to the wind and putting yourself out there! You might be pleasantly surprised, like I was!
