Good afternoon all!
Welcome to my first blog post! I can't believe I actually have my own business blog! :) I have always been a blog and journal person because I love to express my feelings, talk about what is going on in my life and just "vent". I guess I just grew out of it once I graduated from high school, but here I am back again! I have lots of weddings and fun sessions coming up that I cannot wait to share with all of you. I figured I would this my blog to help others learn as I have been learning myself. I definitely don't know everything there is to know about photography, but I am constantly learning. I have been reading and I have several groups on Facebook that I am a part of which is full of photographers from newbies to professionals who have 10+ years in the business. I started this business in January, but I've been doing photography since I was a kid.
Ever since I can remember I have had a camera attached to my hand and family members cringing every time they see it because they KNOW they will be my next "victim" hehe. They do, however, know that I have an eye for a good photograph and they are the ones who have pushed me to do this. I love everything about photography and I am so very excited to have finally turned my love into a business venture to share my talent with others. Before I started this business, I was practicing like crazy! Between using my friends and their children as "guinea pigs" and "second shooting" weddings, I have had a ton of practice! I've had the privilege of photographing twin 18 month olds, several 2 year olds, their mommies, and of course my friends joined in and I got some great couple shots for them! I will even have the privelege of taking some portraits for my best friend who is coming home from National Guard Basic and Advanced Individual Training and her daughter, as well taking my brother's Senior Portraits, along with some of his friends.
I will write about my successes and I will write about my failures. That is life. It is not always a beautiful sunny day and not every session will always go as planned. But that is fine with me, and I will always give you the best work that I can.
Now, I am definitely not an english major. I will probably have misspellings (although that is my pet peeve and it might not always make complete sense, but I will write how I feel and I probably will get slightly off topic. But that's just me and that's how I run :)
I will update my blog with recent weddings as well so keep an eye out for that!!
I am very excited for what the future has in store for me and I hope that you are along for the ride as well!
