3 Ladies and a Camera

I don't always post about personal things, but just wanted to share a couple of images from yesterday of the women in my life and the reason I picked up a camera. 

See capturing those two young girls on the left playing soccer every Saturday about 9 years ago with my little point and shoot Kodak, yes I said point and shoot. Best of all I actually walked around the huge soccer fields with a monopod on it just like the big boys I waned to be like, Neil Leifer, Walter Looss, Brad Margin & Peter Read Miller. 
 

Hit play and check out some of my handy work from 2007-Present. 

Man......so yes looking at the video, its been a while I've been doing this.  I know the Lord has me where I'm suppose to be and Im fine with that.  I started doing my transition from "sports photographer" to event photographer when the girls I coached at the time were turning 15, and you already know what that means Quinceanera!  So it was like "coach you take pictures, do you want to be a sponsor to my quince as the photographer?" 

By then I had moved up to shooting with a Sony A100 with a kit lens & a flash. So naturally I was like yes!  Below is one of my first images from a session for a quinceanera back in 2007. Man I had no clue what I was doing! Some would argue I still don't and that may be true but hustle always out does talent when talent doesn't hustle so I hustled my @ss off.

So I have a lot to be thankful for. The ladies in the first pic are the main reason Im thankful.  For allowing me to document their life and by giving me a life that allows me to do what I love doing.  So there is a small glimpse as to where and how I started photography.

Power in Failure

Failures are constantly on my mind. Thinking I could have always done better. Better in school, be a better son, husband, father, friend. Thinking I'm one failure away from working at a place I'm not happy at.

There is one thing I have learned.

FAILURE IS A GOOD THING!

Some of my failures are in a place in my mind that sometimes see a little light and try to get the better of me. I understand they have made me better. Every let down, every expectation not met. Daily the LORD blessed me closer to my dreams and creates separation from my failures.

If you are afraid of failure, you are afraid of LEARNING to get BETTER.
