…is a crazy one!
When I first decided to launch my business, I was terrified and unsure of what would happen. The world of photography is a tough one because it’s so saturated with wonderful and talented photographers who are all wanting the same thing: Clients.
From the beginning, I decided to lower my expectations and just love every minute of it. Since then, I have met the most amazing people (you know who you are), had wonderful experiences and came across such important and worthwhile opportunities that have changed the way I see this business. When I think of photography as a business, I now expect a totally different experience.
After every shoot, contract, and even unexpected family paparazzi sessions, I get a feeling of excitement and contentment. How many people can say that they get to share; a moment in time, a child’s vision of the world, a great love, a memory and so much more? It’s simply amazing!
I’m aware that photo shoots will always scare me, but I am OK with that. I’ve become fond of those butterflies that accompany me and will welcome them when they want to play.
I have no idea what opportunities the next year will bring or if I will be successful but for now, I am ecstatic with the outcome and welcome any new adventures whether they be perfect or not.
