Last Friday I put the finishing touches to some photography sessions I’d had the privilege to capture, two of which were weddings, packaged them up and sent them to the clients. I was a nervous wreck all weekend, worrying myself silly about scary, imaginary scenarios where they absolutely despised the images and never ever wanted to speak to me again. By Monday afternoon I felt physically ill. They were big jobs that would either build me up or break me and I was downright petrified.
I’d been digging my heels in about the launch of my business, I was completely afraid that people would reject my work or be ridiculed by my photographic peers for thinking I had what it takes. I’ve always had this overwhelming desire for people to like me, I love to be liked…
So all that aside… I got a lovely surprise, a gorgeous bunch of flowers delivered to my door from two very happy newly weds. As it turns out they LOVE all of the images and tiny details and moments that I captured. phew. I suddenly feel like maybe my timing was right, maybe I couldn’t have launched my business as successfully back then as I am now. Maybe the planets are starting to align and maybe, just maybe, I’m believing in myself just a little more too x
