Lately I've been working on me, breaking my own rules, being self aware and approaching things with curiosity. I'm learning that it's so important to step outside your comfort zone. To try something new even if you have no idea how or where to start, just do. It's important to break the rules, go outside your norm, open your heart and be ok with the fact that it make not work out how you initially hoped and imagined but you tried. It's important to let go of it being "perfect" - constantly seeking perfection can break you. So I went out this weekend and did just that and in the moment I flew- my heart had wings- I jumped in excitement because I was having FUN and had no expectations for the results. It was magic.
Then the next day as I looked at my images from this random evening shoot I did something else happened... the perfection creeped back in. I edited the same picture 5 times. It just wasn't right in my mind and the excitement faded. I worried that it looked amateur, I got in my own head.
Until today... When I looked at it again and I remembered how excited I was to do something different, something new, something that i didn't know how to perfect and it was all ok. Yea, its my first time shooting in the dark, so of course it may have an amateur vibe but so what?
So I'm sharing- because in this moment I am releasing my own expectations since the truth is when I took this image I had none. I remember all I learned while at the incredible @blinkconference just 2 weeks ago, and decided to embrace it. It's so easy to say you will do something different and then fall back into your normal patterns because it's easy and comfortable. The only thing I care about now and what I know for sure is my heart could have exploded in the moment that I clicked this shutter because creating something new was just so much **FUN***. No rules, no end result, just experimenting, living in the moment and feeling free. That's what creating should be. It's all a work in progress. *I* am a work in progress, choosing growth.

"I will hold myself to a standard of grace, not perfection..." One day at a time I am working toward this, allowing it to be ok when it's not all so perfect. Are you a perfectionist?

"A mind that is stretched by new experiences can never go back to its old dimensions...." I loved pushing myself out in the desert, I didn't want safe, I didn't want anything to be my normal. Shooting in full sun is not something I usually do and yet in the desert I fell in love with it. @lisamarieprang you are a true professional- I loved working with you! And this @lulus dress looked amazing on you too, I can't get enough! 👌🏼😍💕#christinaramirezphotography #sanantonioseniorphotographer #sanantoniophotographer
