summer may be coming to a close but what i learned this summer has been invaluable.  i learned not to take things so personally.  i had a lot of things challenge my insecurities as a parent and as a photographer this summer.  i then had to tell myself what i tell my son.  ‘these are not failures, they are opportunities to grow”.  funny, i could dish out this wisdom but found it difficult to accept myself.  i want to be a role model for my kids so i reframed my thinking and made a conscience effort to find appreciation in the things I struggled with.  i learned some valuable lessons about myself as a mother, too.  i made some mistakes and realized i don’t have to be defined by them.

so good bye summer and hello fall! i look forward to what you bring, more challenges and more opportunites.
