I am a 44 year old stay at home mom. My prior career was not one that I enjoyed so after the birth of my first child, 4 years ago, I decided to use that as my opportunity to quit my job and see where life took me. I picked up a camera and loved taking photos but found that I wanted something more than photos of my kids, I wanted to tell stories. I've taken classes and have volunteered for a non-profit and am now working on my own personal project around Postpartum Mood Disorder. The more I move forward with my photography the more I set up my own road blocks telling myself I am not creative, I am not an artist and these roadblocks leave me completely blocked and stuck. I end up believeing my inner voice until a friend of mine encouraged me to read the Artist Way. I have just begun and hope there is a creative side to me.
