On Etsy: Photographic Greeting Cards

Earlier this month I launched a new line of products at the summer markets and in my Etsy Fine Art Shop. The product? Blank Fine Art Note or Greeting Cards featuring 5 different images from the collection! I’m thrilled to say these products have had a hugely positive response right out of the gate. Today…

Yes that’s right, I was scared! I still am.

It’s scary! I guess putting yourself out there always is but unlike my wedding photography where people hired me to create emotional photographic art of their wedding day, with my fine art photographs I’m putting out there my own view on the world, my own ideas on beauty, and my own personal style. Talk about…

    It’s so scary putting yourself out there! All those feelings you mentioned, I really connect with. As an artist, you don’t want to show a part of yourself, just to have people reject it, reject you. But look, people love you! Your work is great! Keep on being brave!ReplyCancel

    I love how real your heart is. Thank you for sharing your feelings. It really is ok to be scared, because that means you care about what others think. Please know that there will always be negative people out there unfortunately. You cannot please everyone. Your work is beautiful. I love the flower shots. You have to just keep plugging away.Thank you for sharing your personality in your blog. Keep it up. That is what wins trust with me as a customer of a company. When I am beating myself up about our company, I will re-read our testimonies that are positive to remind myself what we are doing matters and helps other families bond. Have a fantastic weekend. I am visiting from our Facebook Blogger group.

    It is ok to be scare or be afraid of what they would say? or what do they will think? You just have to step outside and show them what you are worth it for. I had same issue at the beginning of my career as a photographer because i wanted to combine Architectural/Industrial Photography with my Pet Photography but know i figured it out that my thing is just pet photography and that i would keep doing architectural photos when I travel to other places :0P just as a hobbyReplyCancel

    I think that sharing any part of ourselves, whether it our art or other forms of work, means opening ourselves up and being vulnerable. This is scary but it also where I do my best work, my most creative coaching, and my best facilitation. Without bring scared I wouldn’t grow, I wouldn’t become better at my craft. So, I agree that we should try the scary stuff – being a better person happens on the margins.ReplyCancel

      You hit the nail on the head here Valerie!
      I must push through the fears and doubts if I want to continue to move forward in my life and my business. I need to push myself to get excited about stepping outside my comfort zone and the unlimited potential that exists.ReplyCancel

    Well done! Cheers to you for putting your work out there! It already sounds as though it’s less scary than it once was, and it will get less scary still.ReplyCancel

      You are absolutely right Jen! Once I took that first step it was a little less scary and with every step forward it becomes more and more comfortable.ReplyCancel

      I was just over reading your post! Stepping outside of our comfort zone can be terrifying but if we don’t keep moving forward and pushing ourselves we’ll never get to where we want to be.ReplyCancel
