Tina's Blog

Hi, I’m Tina Chisnell; welcome to my blog. If you are a prospective client please take a moment to browse through the showcase pages for examples of my portrait photography.

 I like to think of this blog as my virtual scrap book; it’s the place where I keep the other photos and stories I collect as I go about my days, building my business around my passion. 

Dream Big; Be Bold

January 26, 2013

At school, we are told to give children SMART targets. Meaning, their targets should be Small, Manageable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely. Up until now, my dreams have also been SMART; nothing too big, nothing too ambitious, nothing unrealistic and nothing that would take a long time (I’m a “want it done yesterday” type of girl).

 I was encouraged as a child to have sensible dreams; dream of being a doctor, a lawyer or a scientist, something conventional; respectable, professional and not too flamboyant. Although I am very grateful for and proud of what I have achieved as a result of my small, sensible dreams, my eyes have been opened to another way of dreaming.

Dream big – be bold!

 I am no longer embarrassed to share my big dreams and no longer think that they are pie in the sky daydreams; something to be laughed at. Now, I take my own dreams seriously and expect others to do the same. I have learned to be honest about my dreams and accept that maybe I will fail, maybe things won’t work out or…. maybe, just maybe, they will. I invite you to join me in dreaming big and being bold!
