ReDefine Show

'm up and at 'em early this morning and headed to New York City...or, as my Puerto Rican grandma referred as Nueva Jork. I'm speaking this Wednesday at PhotoPlus Expo/WPPI East, but I'm honored to share this interview via Tamara Lackey's ReDefine Show to get this week started off with little photo gab. And, really, watching this video reaffirms what I've always worried...I've been blessed with the gift of talkingnonstopthankyouverymuch.


For more interviews and perspectives, definitely check out ReDefine Show for more gab from great people!

Happy Tuesday!

Sandra Fazzino Photography - Jasmine, my heart is painfully full with gratitude for the way you put yourself out there. Once again, your post hit home. Like, BAM. Each and every word. Yesterday, I said, "no" to an associate shooting opportunity, because we had difficulty negotiating fair terms and also because something felt "off." In my short first season of wedding shooting, I have met incredibly supportive photographers, and I have trust in something much bigger than me that if I'm meant to be successful in documenting people's love for each other, it will come. I don't have to push and force a solution or race to the finish line. I can value myself, choose patience, and keep putting one step in front of the other and enjoy this journey for all it's worth. You are a blessing and an example of God's grace, and I am thankful for you and the other supportive, positive, kind, successful talent in our community. XXOO  10.25.11 - 9:44am
