Oh this word. This word FEAR has been something that I’ve struggled with every single day!

Oh sure, I share here the pretty of being a wedding photographer, speaker, being published, and my life, but all of that hides behind one thing.


Fear of failure. Fear of success. Fear of my mental health. Fear I’m not good enough. Fear that I’ll never make it. Fear no one will book me. Fear I’m not making my family proud.
But we all know that on the other side of FEAR are the best things in life!

How I create a month's worth of blogging content

This week, with 12 new sisters and @juliepaisley, I shared my fears. Y’all, they were out there and my insides were on fire exposing them.

But today, sitting here in the dark of my room, ready to start the day, I feel FREE. Sure, fear is still there but I won’t let it guide me. I’ll have it motivate me.
Today, there is FEAR in at least one of you who follow me. I urge you to be true to yourself. Write down what you are afraid of. Embrace the fear. Then CRUSH IT!

We are in this together!
