Saying “No” For More “YES!”

I used to say yes to every photo session, website or collaboration request but I have been learning to say no more so I can say YES to more moments like this! Love watching my kids grow as they grow very fast!

“Learning to say no more so I can say YES to more moments like this!”

If you don’t know me, I am actually a full-time Manager of the CGI Photography Team for a furniture company (Ameriwood Home). My team and I create all the images of our products in the computer using 3D animation. Crazy stuff! One thing I have always been reminded to do is “check your perspective mode” to make sure everything is in its proper place before you render the image. Rendering an image can take anywhere from 10 min to 12 hours, depending on how much geometry, lighting and etc is in the image.

This thought has me thinking about my own life and has me looking at my perspective mode to make sure everything is where I want it. One thing that I noticed was balancing family time, work and side hustles. This self reflection has allowed me to start to say no to projects, social media and more so I can say YES to what is more important to me.

So what is your “perspective mode” telling you?
