This was me in December getting ready to do a family photo shoot. I was excited! And I’m trying to learn to self market, self promote and be better at self love.
That being said, as I try to move forward in my photography business I’m frustrated at the energy particular people are putting in to tell me I need to be something I’m not. I need to “brand” myself, have a certain look.
I don’t show up in trashy clothes. And as far as I’m concerned, my “brand” is the quality of my work and how I treat people. Why are they telling me I have to have a different “look?” My hair isn’t up to par, my clothes aren’t stylish enough, etc.
I just don’t feel I have to change me to be competitive. It’s not who I am. It’s taken me years to get to this point. I’m having a hard time understanding the purpose of what this person said.
There’s a part of me that feels like they are more worried about themselves being associated with me and what people will think. And that is not my problem. That is not my drama. That is on them. And that is not what they want to hear. So the battle continues.
