Quotes from the Ep


“There are so many things in your brain at the same time as a wedding photographer [and] as an entrepreneur you can’t forget how to care about yourself and how to treat yourself with kindness through creativity. 


Because the creativity is going to feed you what is going to make you stand out and be proud of yourself because you’re gonna feel something and you’re gonna create something through your feelings and this is a muscle you can train”
