Hey Reset!  We wanted to introduce you today to another one of our 2017 attendees who wrote a great blog post following her experience at the conference.  Meet Michelle Glenn, a maternity, birth, newborn, children and senior photographer based in Auburn, Indiana.  We’re so happy to feature your words and your work today, Michelle!

Blog post titled: The EVERYTHING Experience
So…..I have been pondering this for quite some time. I have been asked several times, by several people if I offer mentoring.  I’d always give advice, but never fully believe in myself that I was making it as a self-employed photographer.  Until my recent (first ever) photography conference. The Reset Conference!  Go Rebekah Albaugh and Kellie Penn for putting and amazing event together.  (Get that free marketing in everyday!) But seriously…..LOVED it!!!!  #reset2017 #resetconference

You see, I didn’t really believe in myself because I don’t officially hold a degree in photography or business for that fact.

What I hold is compassion, dreams, talent and the upper right hand of God who walks me through every step of this wonderful journey I am on.

This past weekend, I walked away with the knowledge that I AM doing what I am supposed to be doing.  I AM making a difference. I AM telling my story. And I DO have a huge heart for others. And that I CAN give more of me!

This past weekend, I was encouraged, uplifted and completely united with other fellow photographers whom inspired me to go for my dreams.  I finally had a slogan per-say of how I and others often feel in this “Over-saturated” industry.  And that is “Community over competition.”

That is EXACTLY how our little community here in Auburn IN, works.  In a square block, I know 5 other photographers who would have each others’ backs in a heartbeat. Bending and twisting in ways that are out of our normal just to make things work for EACH OTHER!

This weekend, I made up my mind. I DO have a talent and gift for others.  I AM passionate about telling my story and sharing my life. I often DO open up to others and make myself vulnerable to my people. Why? Because I believe in community.  I believe in myself. And I BELIEVE in YOU!!

So today, I open myself up to be vulnerable to YOU! TO help you grow, learn and build the confidence you need to succeed as a photographer.

Today I offer The EVERYTHING experience.  1:1 mentoring at your pace.  Come have coffee, sit and relax in my studio and tell me…..What are your dreams as a photographer! Pricing dependent on length of mentoring desired.

From the Reset staff: Michelle, we *love* hearing stories like this — where you were inspired to do something you’d previously scared to do, or that is outside your comfort zone.  We are so glad that you came away from Reset with this HUGE takeaway!

You can find Michelle on social media on Facebook and Instagram.
