I learn something new with every photo shoot. Sometimes, the lessons are emotional, like getting over my personal body issues. At other times, I learn lessons about preparedness and making the best with what you've got. You have to be resourceful as a creative. Not everything goes according to plan every time. In fact, it rarely does. But, there is always a solution, and more often than not, it's better than your original plan. Stretching boundaries of comfort, safety, and convention increase your potential. That's why I do what I do; not just because I love it, but because it forces me to grow.
