I am always nervous to meet new clients....driving to a session thoughts begin to swirl in my head.
"Will they like me?"
"Will I like them?"
"Will the light be too bright here or too dark there?"
"I hope the kids think I am funny"
"What if the kids don't think I am funny?!"
"What if my camera breaks....like literally falls apart in my hands" (a little extreme I know but I think it none the less)
After all of these thoughts....I am lucky enough to reply to myself because I talk to myself all the time....(doesn't everybody?)
"Makaya you always have an awesome experience....enjoy it!"
and I am lucky because it's always true. I love the high of meeting new people. I love having a special invite to their personal moments. I love driving home with that naive momentary feeling of "all people are awesome" and even if the kids don't think I am funny they are polite and smile anyway:)
Thank you Motkar family for letting me in on your "moments"
