A mentor of mine posed this question today. So I spent some time reflecting on the answer. I knew I was ready to fully commit with starting the studio when I put the "dream" into words on paper for a bible study.
The thought had been floating around and around in my mind and I kept pushing it aside.... it was scary. What if people laughed at me, judged me and just flat out didn't want me to take their pictures. I saw Boudoir as empowering, uplifting, daring and FUN. What if others didn't. Could I explain it so they would?
My answer- I knew I was ready when I was compelled to do it. I prayed and answers came and instead of ignoring them I am embraced it and went for it.
