I cannot express how REWARDING being a photography professor is - seeing my students improve immensely from day one makes my heart so happy😭😭😭!!!!!!
Today while I was driving home I had a lot of time to self-reflect. This morning I had a very large realization that I am meant to be where I am, doing what I am doing, right here, right now. Photography has taken up such an extremely special place in my heart, and if you had told this to ‘highschool Saraya’, she probably would have never believed you that I’d be where I am right now. Looking back on it now, everything I did and every milestone in my life was to bring me to right here pursuing the career of my dreams, and I didn’t even know it at the time as those moments were happening. You can't connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards. I was MEANT to be a photographer, before I even knew it myself. You have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life and has solidified for me, again, that I am meant to be where I am, doing what I am doing, right here, right now. Don’t spend your life doing something you don’t believe was meant for you. We only get one life, and I am beyond grateful that mine is filled with photographing once in a lifetime moments.
