“I want to sing like the birds sing, not worrying about who hears or what they think.”
To my darling girls,
There will be times in your lives when you’ll hit a few roadblocks on the path to your dreams. There will be people who want to tear you down, and times you will want to give up and go home.
But I want you to know that persevering through those tough times will do more to build you up than they’ll tear you down.
Sometimes you’ll have to stretch yourself way past your comfort zone, and that’s okay.
Sometimes you’ll have a door closed right in your face. That’s okay too.
But my loves, never give up on your dreams. Stick with it, put your head down and soldier on. There is truly no limit to what you can accomplish.
So when there comes a time that you want to quit and go home, just know that I will welcome you with open arms, dry your tears, and give you a pep talk. Unconditionally and without hesitation.
And then I’ll send you right back out into the world to kick some butt.
Because I believe in you and I always will.
P.S. These photos were out of my comfort zone. As a natural light photographer who worships the sun, it was definitely stretching for me to shoot in the dark with the ISO pumped sky-high. I am so glad I did it though, because I have a newfound confidence in my technical and creative abilities. And I think you both quite enjoyed your candlelit bubble bath.
