I felt completely inadequate as I drove there.

April 1, 2011

I had been waiting for this since January and couldn’t sleep the night before. But as I drove the 2 hours to Akron all I could think about was how far out of my league and comfort zone I was. When I entered the room I was still nervous but it was wonderful to feel like I was where I belonged, among photographers.

Before I even went I had decided that I would write about the night and what I learned from Jasmine Star.  Now as I look at my three, completely full, pages of scribbled notes I can’t even begin to think of how to summarize everything I gained from that night and Jasmine.  I do want to say that after following (at times maybe even stalking) Jasmine’s blog she is as sweet and genuine in person as she is on her blog. Now I know everyone who meets her says that but I think that’s just a testament to her character.  I went up to her after to just thank her for a wonderful night and instead I felt like I was speaking to a best friend or an older sister.

Jasmine,

You will probably never read this, but I wanted to thank you for the encouragement, inspiration and advice.  I began that night feeling like I couldn’t even compare to anyone in the room and left feeling like I was ready to take on the world…or at least begin with Pittsburgh. And thank you for reminding me that with God we can do anything. You were right, I wouldn’t even be here if it wasn’t for Him.

I also want to thank Tanya and Trish for introducing themselves to me! It was so nice to meet you and I would love to stay in touch as we grow in our photography!

And since I’m a photographer and believe everything is better with a picture, I’ve attached one from the night! (Sorry I look so rough, it had been a long day of working and driving…plus I’m next to Jasmine who is gorgeous!)
