“Fake it - till you become it”
We had a Ted talk yesterday at work and it really resonated with me. I always felt like I didn’t belong. I feel that way with everything I do. My new job I said “I don’t deserve this. I don’t belong here”. When people ask me to take their photos. “Why me? I’m really not that good” The speaker spoke about Faking it till you make it. Really it’s about faking it till you become it. We all belong somewhere.
I am always fighting with myself, telling myself I do belong somewhere or I do deserve this is. It’s a struggle for me everyday. Can I fake it till I become it? I think so. I think I can overcome thinking that don’t deserve something or I am not good enough! It’s so easy for me to seem confident on the outside but inside I am constantly putting myself down and telling myself you don’t belong here. Goal is for me to believe that I can do this and I do belong.
If you’re looking for a good Ted Talk look up “Amy Cuddy - Fake it till you make it”.

Took advantage of the great weather this weekend and did a senior portrait photo shoot.

“Meekness is not weakness. It takes great strength and self-control to be gentle when others are being harsh. Like wind and water mold a rock with time so will the meek shape of the world.”

I hope everyone had a great Halloween. I am so lucky I get to go see my nieces every year. I also never use my 50mm prime lens. I decided to use it last night. I’m not sure if I like it or if I just need to practice more with it. 🧟‍♀️📸

“Thank you for capturing our fun!”
I would look at other photographers and wonder why they never brought their camera to family events. I would think why you wouldn’t capture this for your family. Tell their story. After five years of taking photographs I realize why most photographers don’t bring their cameras. People kind of expect from you. You are no longer the aunt but the one who follows everyone around to capture “their fun”. I use to absolutely love taking photos of my nieces and now I feel like it has become a chore. Like I am no longer the one taking them to fun things. I wanted to have somethings that were just us. Like this past weekend we went to a farm for a hayride and pumpkin picking. This has become an “annual” gathering for my sister in-laws friend, their kids oh and her family. I have become the one without kids that just shows up to “capture their fun”. As a 36 year old woman who is not married, does not have kids and does not have friends. I am treated that way. I feel outcast, alone and I really don’t belong. I feel this way most of the time but I am feeling this way more and more. Again, it is not okay to say to someone “do you think you are going to have kids?” I feel like I have grown to hating taking pictures of most people and events. I use to love it and it has made me more insecure than I already am. I feel more and more alone. I have grown to hate what I love and that makes me so sad. The best is when I tell someone in my family how I feel and their response is “stop taking thing so personally”. Do I?
I will go back to being quiet and the one behind the camera…
