When I was 18, I bought my first camera. A Fujifilm for a couple hundred on Amazon. I was so excited, and I never really dreamed that seven years later I'd be diving into other people's lives to preserve memories and make new friends every day. Back then, it was just about taking pretty pictures. Bettering myself. Learning more, more, more. And I felt like such a newb --- because I was! And that was okay. That's something I've been learning in the present, that it's okay to be a newbie.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ It's about community, not competition. I used to be so judgmental toward new photographers, but I've learned that to be a true artist it means I need to appreciate where I came from to be better when I get where I'm going. And I hope someday to help other newbies get to that place too... where it finally feels like there was a reason for all those embarrassing moments at the beginning when I was just excited to LEARN.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ 📷: @savannahlutrellphotography ⠀ Skirt: @xoxotaylorlularoe
Raise your hand if I caught you endlessly scrolling (and comparing, and wishing, and judging). I've been there. I'm there erryday. You get sucked in, you compare your life to others. You think, man I wish my house was that pretty, or I wish I could do my makeup like her. But we need to learn to appreciate the things we already have before we can make room to grow. That's a lesson I'm learning every minute.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Let's take a look at how good our lives can be right now, as they are. Ya with me??
