TIP #3 | Listen
Listen to your inner voice. Does it say to put the camera down? Does it say you need more of less content (more/less words, more/less photos). Be respectful and trust that inner voice.
Listening is also critical for discovering stories that might be important to you. I'm always overhearing things my kids say and jotting those bits down on journaling cards.
I also listen for patterns. Things they are saying, things I'm saying, etc.
