This week has been slow. One shoot with Priscilla (Check her out!) Where I got to meet her adorable dog *heart eyes* We shot at her apartment in Houston. Laid back, relaxed shoot. A/C was off though. That sucks.
I feel happier all the time knowing the direction I've choosen for photography is the right one for me. When going through traditional paths towards making a living as a photographer, it's easy to have your day filled with things you don't want to do. Working with clients that don't excite you. Working with people who don't value you. For me, these are sacrifices I won't make.
My second shoot for Patreon goes live soon. I'm excited to create, share, and stay authentic to myself. On the one side, I've not met my deadline to release it when I planned to. On the other side, I allowed myself grace to do the work as I feel ready so that I don't have to feel like I just shoved the shoot out the door. I would rather think of Patreon as a gift I'm proud of than as a hurried obligation. Ideally, a gift that's on time ;-)
Also, there is a giveaway currently going on for people who are subscribed to my newsletter. The winner will be drawn next week :-)
