Creativity takes courage. -Henri Matisse

Self-Portrait of Pittsburgh family photographer and owner of LeeAnn K Photography

I must start by saying that this year has been a whirlwind. So many ups and downs and personal tragedies that I never thought I would make it here. I have spent my life imagining all the possibilities my love for art and personal drive could bring me, only to quickly step back into my daily grind in fear I might not succeed. It's easy to let fear encase your mind and stop you from achieving your dreams.

From the moment I imagined starting my own business to the moment I actually launched LeeAnn K Photography, I have felt fear and joy. It's a roller coaster of emotion because let's face it who isn't afraid? Afraid of change, rejection, failure. How often do we tend to shy away from our dreams because of our fear? Immediately after I published my Facebook page the fear inside my head said "RETREAT, RETREAT!" I didn't and the point is this "creativity takes courage." Change takes courage, pursuing your dreams takes courage don't let your fear hold you back from your best self.
