I feel like there’s more symbolism here than most of us want to admit.

What locks do you need to break open this weekend? This month? This year? What are your goals? I really want to take my photography to the next level!

I’m so ready to get more sessions going, whether that’s portraits, family, engagements, or second shooting weddings (an industry I’m dying to get into!)

But like this picture, I sometimes feel locked behind a gate (or 20), some of my own doing. Whether it’s not having the tools I need or the money to get them, not having customers, not selling prints, not having time to get out there and shoot, having creative blocks, or having time to edit for hours and hours…we all have the locks that are keeping us back. How do we unlock the gate?

What are you doing to either find the key, or break the lock?
