“Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.”
– C. S. Lewis

My mind has been so full of thoughts about where I want my business and my life to go. I have been studying other people's work, researching what it takes to succeed and trying to be purposeful in everything I do. I've let go of the idea that I can't, that I don't have what I need, that there isn't enough money and a million other things. There are tons of people out there. I am just one of the many photographers in my city, not to mention the rest of the world. It's hard to stand out when amidst a crowd. I know that, but it doesn't discourage me.

Images have the incredible potential to encapsulate a truth and capture emotions. My goal it to do just that. I want to show the truth that love knows no bounds, that each person is unique and wonderfully made by the Creator, that marriage is a beautiful thing, that there is merit in little things and so much more. I don't need to worry about being original; I already am. I just need to stay true to myself and encapsulate the world how I see it, not how I am suppose to see it or merely for the sake of being "different".

There will never be another you, so embrace it. Don't worry about standing out in whatever you do, but seek to express truth. That is enough. Don't change who you are to be more "original" or sacrifice truth for the sake of something that won't last.
