Welcome to my blog! This is both my online business and personal journal where I share all of my photography and business projects! Allow me to introduce myself...I am Catherine Guidry, a Louisiana wedding photographer. I was raised in a small town but consider myself a big dreamer. My favorite things in life are spending time with friends and family, bike riding with my husband and working on new creative projects! I am all about meeting new friends and can't wait to meet you!
Some days, I just sit…and think. Or I’ll drive and think. Actually, driving is one of my favorite pasttimes because it allows me to do so. Along the lines of how quickly life can change, I decided to write a personal post today about my life as it is in this moment.
I feel like I have grown SO much lately. I’m not sure if it’s the time in my life, or the occurrences going on at this moment but it’s like for the first time, I’m becoming the person that I’ve always wanted to be. 🙂 I feel free…and I feel happy. And…honestly, a little fearless. Maybe it’s my new short & sassy blonde hair….or the fact that I can finally dress in my cute summer outfits…but I like it.
Growing up, there were times when I felt on the outs. Whether it was just being a girl growing up in the adolescent years…or if it was ACTUALLY me, I suppose I’ll never know. Maybe I am weird. 😉 <—I definitely am weird. And finally, I’m ok with who I am. And it’s a wonderful feeling. My unique approach to life is what makes me who I am..and I’m ok with that. 🙂
LOVING WITH AN OPEN HEART:
I’ve met and come into contact with so many wonderful people lately and I’ve come to understand that the connection you have with a person is what makes it so special. And this connection is not something that a) happens with everyone or b) happens right away…so I’m thankful for those that I have connected with.
I am growing exponentially as a business and I am so happy with things in life lately all around. I am currently free from preconceived notions and I have no idea what to expect…but that’s ok. I’m loving with an open heart and prepared for what life may throw my way.
Recently, I have also come to grips with failure. Failure is something that I’ve struggled with. Being a Type A (or Type AAA) person as I’ve often referred to myself as being, I have always been my own worst enemy. I struggle with imperfection and I have been known to be really hard on myself at times.
Although I think the idea of perfection is great to strive for…I also have accepted that I WILL mess up. I will do things wrong, and I will move forward and learn from my mistakes. I will continue to push to be the best person that I can…but along the way when things are not as I want, I intend to accept these things and take them as a lesson learned.
In moving forward until the next time I have this chance to sit and think, I will continue growing, learning, loving and attempting to be the best human I can. 🙂
