Dear Natalie: A Love Letter.

Hi Natalie,

I just want to say thanks for being an encouragement and inspiration to me...and to many others like me! I subscribe to DPS so I have seen your blog and website and enjoyed your humorous and REAL posts there! I love that!

I've had my DSLR for 2 years and am completely in love with photography, tho I sometimes feel frustrated that I cannot spend the time (or money) to become as good at it as I'd like! I, like you, am a busy mommy with two little boys, ages 3 and 1. They keep me hopping! I mostly practice photography on them and I'm thrilled to have hundreds of precious photos to document this awesome (albeit overwhelming) time in our lives! Anyway, I just want you to know that you inspire me. I can see you are a real mom with the same crazy work and home to keep up and you still manage to love photography. Your constant reminder to love it and not worry so much about whether I'm doing everything right is exactly what I need to hear! I want to grow and become a fabulous photographer...but not at the cost of losing my joy in it!

Thanks so much.

God bless!

NATALIE
