Your journey is YOUR journey 

That mistake you made on that shoot, learn from it and move on

Your haters are not your motivators

Don’t let the lack of “likes” consume you

Keep going even when you want to cry

Stay true to yourself 

Stop competing with total strangers on social media

Follow the artist whose work inspires you 

Practice, Practice, Practice 

Technique over product

Share your knowledge, pay it forward

Don’t ever be ashamed of your work or where you are in your journey

Don’t fake it ’til you make it, it will cost you in the end

Master color theory

They will talk about you with their mouth, their hands and their eyes 

Hold certain parts of your journey close to your heart, not everything needs to be shared

Celebrate your small wins

Never stop learning

Stay humble

Be intentional 

Don’t be afraid to post your work 

and most of all remember you’re good enough!
