    the best thing i’ve learned today is that it is okay to step back and rethink something that isn’t working. if you’re stuck (writer’s block, etc) with what you’re doing, don’t try to pull through it. just relax, go back to the drawing board, and look at your options.

    I have learned that my second daughter (2 months old) is nothing like how my first daughter (now almost 3) was as a baby. She is not as laid back and does best with a routine and schedule, which is hard for me. But we’re figuring it out! I’m learning a lot more about what I’m capable of as a woman and mother because she pushes me outside of my comfort zone.

  49. The best thing I learned today is that even with what I thought was an EPIC mistake (read: corrupted file transfer and lost four photo sessions) – Good customer service and honest/upfront-ness with clients goes a LONG way! It means more to them than a “good photo”. One of my clients that I will be doing a re-shoot for because her session was lost has already referred me to two ppl that have contacted me. And this was AFTER telling her about what happened. My clients ROCK!!
