The last few weeks I have really been in my own head. About my work, about my business, about pretty much everything.
Am I doing enough? Why is that person booking and I’m not? Are my prices too high for the service I offer?
So lets start with the basics…
WHAT is this? WHY am I feeling this way? This my friend is called the Comparison Game. It’s easy to get sucked into and hard to change your mindset out of.

So you’re probably wondering – how did you get here? For me it was something as small as watching my other photographer friends book sessions and I knew I wasn’t. It wasn’t because I wasn’t happy for them but I was jealous and so the downward spiral began…
And lets be 100% CLEAR – I am SO THRILLED for my other photographer friends for kicking ass and taking names. Seriously, do not read this blog and think otherwise. I just feel a type of way and now I’m blogging it to whatever following I have to possibly shed some light and be somewhat helpful within this specific subject.
So you’ve probably felt all of these things I’ve mentioned already and if not – YOU ARE ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES BABES. But if you have been here and know exactly what I am talking about here are some tips that I have found that help me to avoid the spiral…
I really hope some of these tips helps someone one day. Being a business owner is HARD and not for the weak. So, shoutout to all my boss men and woman out there. Keep growing and never stop reaching for the sky.
Love you all the most.
