52.3.2 Fears and Goals | Minneapolis and Buffalo MN Photography

This week we created bios for the blog and thought about describing ourselves, along with our fears and goals. Just drafting it stirred up a lot of fear in me. I guess I am ultimately a private person. So I added, and then cut and pasted, until I came up with this.

Thinking about what describes me, my fears and goals:

mother, wife, business manager, photographer (the hats I wear)

sunsets, nature, faith, kissing my children, laughing loudly, seeing the world (what fills my soul)

marketing and building my business, large group shots-because I like connecting with one or two people as I photograph, unexplored genres such as weddings, shooting film (what scares me, but I’d like to explore in my photography)

authentic, connected, joyful and peaceful (words that describe my art and me)

intentional (2014): consistent (2015)

Picture: From my first roll of film on a snorkeling trip. Because I want to see and experience things that scare me, I will do things that scare me-such as snorkeling in unknown waters because I want to see the beauty of the colorful fish and coral beneath. Or I may learn something new such a film, or try a new approach, working to be consistent and intentional in whatever I do. Life is short; people and experiences matter most to me.  (goals as I age and realize life isn’t infinite)

We will be publishing our blogs and bios in groups this week, so please click HERE to see more.
