Hope Hanson senior portraits

Do you ever just feel like a talentless, garbage person and question all of your life choices? Well that's how I've been feeling lately!

I lay awake at night ruminating over my photography work. I ask, "Am I good enough to be doing this? How can I be better? Maybe I need to give up?"

Of course, in these moments I'm forgetting to pray about what's going on. 

So I've been trying to do that more. And today I feel like God just threw me a softball and I blasted it out of the park. 

Hope Hanson's senior pics, let's talk about it. 


We had puuuurrrfect light. The sun was setting on her grandparents lake cabin and we were blessed with the softest, most flattering light ever. 

Also, Hope is just downright, drop-dead gorgeous! It was so hard to edit down her pics to the best of the best. I felt like a child and wanted to keep them all (which I basically did in the end). 

How funny is it that her name is Hope and her little senior portrait shoot gives me hope that I got this? Owning a business and flying totally solo is so hard. You have to be your own accountant, IT person, and be super creative. It's not just as simple as just taking photos.

So my dear Hope, thanks for being more than just a sweet, beautiful model and giving me hope that I can create stunning pictures and I'm not totally a talentless, garbage person. MWAH!
