I’m doing my best. I’m inspired by all of you who are also doing your best. It’s not easy. We live in a society that lauds perfection and lionizes overachievement. But what about those who do their best?
Take this little bush, for example. It’s not the tallest. It’s not the most colorful. It doesn’t provide the most shade. It’s not the oldest, nor the prettiest, nor does it have any great story. It’s a small bush along a paved hike in @zionnps . In a massive canyon, it’s one of hundreds (thousands?) of green paint daubs that dot the landscape to give color and character to this special place. But just looking at it with a cursory glance, the little bush may seem unremarkable, plain, or even average.
But look again.
This little bush is incredible! In a dry desert, with a harsh landscape altered by the trail tracks, millions of tourists, a scorching sun, and devastatingly cold winter nights, this little bush is doing its very best. Each branch braves the elements; each leaf is a testament to trying. You don’t measure a bush like this by its height, you measure its growth. And growth may be slow—painfully, arduously slow—but that doesn’t make it any less worth of praise than the tallest trees in the old growth forests.
Some days we tower over the other treetops and we seem to have no limits to how tall or how fast we grow. But some days we feel like almost no progress has been made. Sometimes several days go by like that. But if that little bush that’s clinging to the side of the cliff can do it, and manage to grow, so can I. The secret? Just try your best. Go out there each day and try. Make an effort. Any effort. Exert some kind of will and force to change. And over time you will grow. It may be painfully slow, but you’ll see growth.
We have lots of days. Some days we might not feel like we’ve done much. Some days we might not be able to say we’ve done our best. But the great part about a day is that if one of them doesn’t go how you want, you get a whole new one to start fresh again tomorrow. Just do your best.

Movement > Fear.
I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of fear. It’s usually the only thing that stands between you and something really important. @willsmith preaches this a lot and is a great example of pushing out of that zone of comfort. It’s funny, I’d much rather jump off a cliff into shallow water than stand on a stage to do public speaking in front of a crowd. Which is something I hope to one day over come as well.
Who would jump this gap with me?🤓
Another epic shot from my buddy @iforeversaunders make sure to check his stuff out🤙🏻
Hi Carly will solomley swear to never judge another mother when they are frustrated with their children in the grocery store or anywhere for that matter. Being a mom is HARD. Cyber fist bumpin’ all the moms out there 👊🏻
I have a confession......
I know I wasn’t supposed to do this.
I feel so guilty.
I’m a horrible mom.
But I just can’t help it.
I hid my @crumblcookies cookie AND crumbl cream from my daughter.
I know I’m a horrible mom.
I just can’t share.
Being a photographer has taught me so. many. things. So I wanna share some things I’ve learned!!! Here’s a PHOTOG TIP: 😋
Delivering a gallery is part of a couple’s experience. Before I send off a gallery I go through all of the images to see if they are in order. From getting ready, to walking down the aisle, family pics and reception.
Make sure they are in order! They want to relive their day just how you saw it ✨
The other day I was venting to my sister about my friends having not so good experiences with their photographers. (😩) She said this: having a good photographer is just like having a good nurse when you have a baby. They can either make or break the experience. And you want to have the absolute BEST experience, right? 🤯🤯🤯🤯
This struck me so hard!! My goal is to be THE BEST third wheel 😏
