I have a little secret to tell, I’m not the biggest fan of fall 😮and that’s only because I know winter is coming and fast! So at least I get to stare at summer weddings all day long and pretty brides like @shannaswain 💕

Excuse me while I get introspective for a moment.
I just read a few posts from two amazing people who I have done mentorship sessions with, @sharon_litchfield and @traceyjazminphoto. Both touched on the fact that fear is such a limiting factor to success and pursuing one's dreams.
This photography thing is still pretty new to me. Doing something that is purely creative and just because I enjoy it is still pretty new to me. As a child of Chinese immigrants, I was raised with the stereotypical expectation that I would become a lawyer, a doctor, or an accountant. While I was put in dance, piano, and drawing class as a kid, the arts was never really a serious career option for me.
When I decided that I wanted to give photography a try, it took me almost half a year to even justify to myself buying a camera, because I was afraid of committing to something that I wasn't sure I could succeed at. Thank goodness for my husband for encouraging me and reassuring me that it wasn't a "waste" to do mentorships, because it's through them that I have slowly started building up more confidence to go after what I want, without fear.
I still doubt myself sometimes. But hopefully I will be able to keep reminding myself to push pass the fear, and continue to chase my dreams 💫
