"Don't Compare Your Beginning..."

I have always been a girl who has wanted to be ahead of wherever I am.

When I was in junior high, I couldn't wait to be in high school.

When I was a Freshman in college, I couldn't wait to be a Senior.

When we had an apartment, I couldn't wait to buy a house.

And, when we first started our business, I couldn't wait to be a big deal "destination wedding photographer' (whatever that was) charging thousands and thousands of dollars like all of the people that I looked up to.

I'm here to tell you something: right now is way more amazing than any of us give it credit for.

And not to go all country music on you but....you're going to miss this.

You're going to miss those early days of your business. You're going to miss the fight. The fire. The firsts.

You're going to miss that feeling the very first time somebody hires you because of YOU. Not because you happen to be a photographer and they need a photographer. But because they can't imagine their day being the same with anyone but you.

You're going to miss the early wins. The hunger. The wanting it so bad you can taste it.

And yes, you're even going to (well sort of) miss those late nights, the losses, the brick walls that just made you stronger.

Oh don't get me wrong, the stuff still to come is pretty world-rockingly amazing too. And the adventure just keeps getting better and better.

But don't you waste a second of your adventure peeking behind door number two to see what better thing is coming.

You only get one chance at right now.

And trust me, your right now is way more wild & precious than someone else's down the road.

Rock it out friends,
M:)
