From the cutting room floor, 3 years ago.  Looking through old LR catalogs and found this one I passed over back then.  I submit my work fairly often, and it gets rejected regularly.  It’s hard to get too caught up in that rejection from others when I often reject my own images at first glance, depending on my mood or place in my journey when I’m viewing them.  It’s not about if I’m “good enough;” it’s about connection.  And I can’t force that - either it connects or it doesn’t.  So I just keep shooting what connects to me and hope that clicks with others (and myself 😁) along the way. #clickpro #artofstorytelling_ig #therebelliousstoryteller #thedocumentyourdaysproject #childhoodunplugged #shamoftheperfect #beinstainspired #lightyourjoy  #enchantedchildhood #embracingtheeveryday  #theartofchildhood #the_beautiful_real #motherhoodiscolorful  #canonfanphoto #our_everyday_moments #boldemotionalcolorful  #createandinspireloop #shared_joy #ourlightwithin #let_there_be_delight #galleryoflightfeature #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesugarjar #lobk_everyday #aoe_backlight #cw_light #sc_theme321 #llb_movement #tws_faceless #project_faceless

Sewing lessons with Grammy this weekend - so thankful we live close enough to visit so they can share this time together.  Everyone in the family can sew - from my mom to my husband to my sister and even my 6 & 10 year old kids.  The talent skipped me (yes, I’ve tried, desperately - I can’t keep the thread on the fabric). As I sat there watching them, my brain kept seeing that Grace painting of the man praying over bread.  When I processed this, I had to make it a little more painterly to match what I was seeing. #whpweekend #clickpro #artofstorytelling_ig #therebelliousstoryteller #thedocumentyourdaysproject #childhoodunplugged #shamoftheperfect #beinstainspired #lightyourjoy  #enchantedchildhood #embracingtheeveryday  #theartofchildhood #the_beautiful_real #motherhoodiscolorful  #canonfanphoto #our_everyday_moments #boldemotionalcolorful  #createandinspireloop #shared_joy #ourlightwithin #let_there_be_delight #galleryoflightfeature #theartofchildhood #jj_its_kids #thesugarjar #theeverydayportrait #napcpeveryday #totm_lightandshadows #jj_forum_2539 #cw_light #usethisphotobook
