June 2017 Gorgeous In Your Inbox- Iowa News Photography


Because Life is Gorgeous

On the surface, it looks like a great last two months. I graduated from GDMLI, took a road trip that covered 2,676 miles with Matt and all four kids (see mine mixed in with the Massachusetts cousins above?), got a pass to the pool and am soaking up the rays as much as possible. I’ve taken on some new branding work (I’ll share the results later this month), donated a photo booth to Help-A-Heart’s Dinner and Auction (that brought in over $20,000!) and gave senior portrait experiences to 10 beautiful girls at the Young Women’s Resource Center (with my friend Robyn King from Studio 92).

But creativity and stability never seem to go together. The more beautiful the work I’m creating, sometimes the lower I feel at the end of the day. In my mind, I know it should be the opposite. I should be on cloud nine. But I’m not. And that is ok.

So many of my friends are struggling with feeling like they are not enough. I’m struggling with feeling like I am not enough. But the more we talk about it, the less power it has over us. So I’m going to keep being open about how hard it is to balance creativity and stability in my life, especially when telling emotionally challenging stories. And I’m going to listen to good advice and follow through on the appointment I have with a new counselor.

So if you are feeling your best self ever this summer, or if you are having a hard time getting through each day, you are enough. And your story is an important one.

Whatever your story, let’s tell it together, beautifully.
