WOW! This is fantastic!! I just love that this person took the time to e-mail you to let you know how she feels about you..
You know Lindsay - you are an inspiration to me too ..
I am still learning .. but when I look at your work .. I know I can get better and better ..
You are a very talended photographer ... and don't let anyone tell you differently!!
Thanks for sharing!!
Take Care, Julie


I remember the photographer that told you you would fail. I thought he was senseless then and still do now.

What a thougthful email to recieve, I am happy for you and for the author for being open to insiration.

I see why you may have difficulty enjoying your success. Open yourself up to it girl, it is already here and more is coming!!!!

Other Julie (lol)


Ditto everything that person said! I only "know" you through the nest but you have definitely inspired me! Your work is AMAZING!!!



I see myself getting better with every set of photos I take and I am loving the journey. Again, thanks for the inspiration to go after a dream I didn't even know I had!



I didn't know this story! What a turd! Why in the world would someone say something like that? Guess he is feeling like a big dummy NOW! HA!

Can't wait to see what you're gonna do with that 5D- probably put him out of BUSINESS!!! :o)



I think you inspire more people then you realize. Your story, what you have been through personally and your family and the amazing talent you have and the direction you are headed, it is simply inspiring.

I share your story with so many people. I think not only by your amazing talent, but by being who you are, you are destined for greatness.


You also inspire me... much more then you know. I'm just hoping that you don't start getting the 'stalker' feel from me... LoL

That's such a beautiful email. Too often, we forget to let people know when they have touched our lives in positive ways. We always remember to give them a piece of our mind if they have done us wrong. It's something I've promised to work on more this year.
