I was having a really great conversation yesterday with a fellow photographer friend...and we were talking about feedback on our work and our services.  We noticed that a lot of times we don't get any.  Maybe a "thank you"...or "i really liked it or loved it".  But a lot of us don't take the time to really be detailed in how we feel about a service or product to type up an email to express this to someone.

I know this can apply to everyone's lives...and in all forms.  Be it ANY customer service areas of life.  I know quite a few of us simply want to hear from you what we are doing right...rather than what we are doing wrong.  (even though constructive criticism is AWESOME).  What do you think?  What have you expressed lately to those that have touched your lives?  Has a friend been amazing to you?  Maybe some random acts of kindness and kind words should be a habit in our daily lives too.

As many negative things we think & say...we should also apply the positive thoughts & words to our lives.  I can guarantee you - there are quite a few people looking to HEAR from you.  No, not a text or email (though, can be great tools)...give someone a call - meet up for lunch - tell them how much you appreciate them!

To my clients: If you have any testimonials to share with how I have helped you, your business, your family with my photography - please let me know.  It is not that often I get detailed expressive responses - though I do appreciate those of you that have taken the time to thank me and say what you love! :)  I'm here to serve you...and express my heartfelt THANKS to all of you I have worked with.  Thank you for letting me share some of your world! :)

I hope you all have a great week!  I'm about to see what Austin is about if you are in Austin and would like to do a fun photo shoot - let me know. :)

Peace out, have fun.
Take pictures.

On the journey to the FUTURE!

I like when I get to places that just make sense.  Where ideas, thoughts & heart all line up!  I will be doing some major thinking & writing in the next few weeks to figure out some next steps in my life and in the business.  One of the MAIN words I find to be a truth is FOCUS.  When you get focused into something, there is power in that.  My problem has been staying focused OR finding something to really focus on.  I can be really "ok" at lots of things - but can pick a few things to be really GREAT at.  I find that the artist inside keeps calling out...and I know there is a place for me out I'm going to find it and walk right to it. 

I think before I know it, I'll be there.  For all I know - I'm a call away - a text away - a tippy-toe away from an explosion of a huge dream that will be fulfilled soon. 

One question I was asked last year..."but aren't you already there?"...

Well, yes and no.  There are ton of little dreams that have been fulfilled.  You know simple ones.  Ones that I've made happen.  The next level for me involves the bigger dreams hiding in here.  A greater purpose that has yet to be seen.  It is like the layers of onions...not only am I being peeled back to expose a brighter me...but also my life is starting to represent a freedom that I didn't have 5 years ago.  Sometimes we have to walk the path of the so-so before we really start finding that consistent passion in what we love. 

How do we find what we love?  That too, is a journey.  As a photographer and artist...there are a GAZILLION ways to go in this.  There are ton of different specialties to move towards.  This is why I've spent time doing a little of everything!  I really haven't known what I wanted to focus on...until now.  I've recently caught glimpses of things that have been hiding for so long...and passions deep within - of things I'm about to jump on.  I don't think any minute of my life was wasted, but sometimes I feel that I kept myself from focusing because of FEAR. 

I'm making my own path.  There are very few in my life that have walked where I have...and where I will walk.  I hope to bump into some folks that have walked similar paths - so I can grab advice from them about where I'm walking and how to do it wisely.  Wisdom will certainly go hand in hand with what I am doing next.  Thank God for that. :)  I guess I'm saying - I would rather have gone slowly...than fast, even though my personality is sometimes in hyper-mode.  I know in the end, I'm thankful for the path I'm taking and have taken.  Because my future is brighter and brighter and clearer and clearer.

Just like was recently pointed out...
my new level is like a new camera....

new lens, sharper focus, WIDER angle.
same buttons & settings, just a whole new set of equipment to work with.
get it?  EQUIPPED.
I am equipped to do the work ahead of me.

God does not call the qualified, he qualifies the called.
I am called.

This is why I will never stop. :)

Have a great week!!!!!

I have been spending a week kinda nitpicking some things I do in my business...and one thing I need to put to the forefront when I speak now, is the VALUE.  I'm not talking about PRICE now, I'm talking about VALUE.  As a person, creative spirit, full of life and passionate - I simply have VALUE.  My work has value to me.  I invest my emotion & heart into every session and every event.  I am forever connected even to work that may be sub-standard because a piece of me is in each piece.  You could also say the peace in me, is in each piece.

I'm not really a writer or a teacher, but I do it as forms of expressions of my heart to SHARE.

I value YOUR time and who you are too.  There are days when I'm running late for things that I had every intention being on time for, but when I run late (and I could have prevented it)...I am sometimes communicating that I don't care.  Or maybe you would have percieved it that way.  Hey, I too have felt that way!  When someone takes the time out of their day to meet you or do a shoot with you - that time IS valuable! :) 

As I'm talking to potential customers I get the feeling that my heart about my VALUE is not coming across as well as it could be.  I already know I'm an amazing person, with an amazing gift to share & create images.  I sometimes let them speak for themselves.  I'm also amazingly flawed, which in itself is something I appreciate.  Never have been perfect and never will be! :)  That is the beauty of it. 

I love what I do as a photographer.  Capturing the moments in lives that happened either by setup or real moments.  I prefer the real moments because if you are emotional like me - you connect an EMOTION with that moment.  You know, when the groom first sees his bride in the aisle....or when the bride gets fed up with her dress and kicks it around will walking.  When babies connect with their moms and dads.  You can't imitate that!  You remember those moments vividly in photographs. :) 

I am valuable as a service provider.  I believe I shed some light into the darkness in this world.  I believe I have been given gifts & talents to USE  together with YOU, my potential client - we make things happen.  We make dreams come true.   So, letz meet up and talk about your dreams/visions for your event or photos you desire.  Let's make this HAPPEN. :)

Looking forward to the rest of 2010.

Where vision/provision/destiny turns into CONVERGENCE.

To where my dreams, to help you with your dreams...while living my dream...becomes a consistent way of life. :)
