I’m Doing It!

I’m saying it out loud, so now I have to do it.

I’m starting my photography business!

There is so much to do to set up a business let alone working on a craft to support it.  It would be easy to keep putting it off–to wait until I had everything perfectly in place–but I know me and there’s no such thing (or time) as perfect.

And if ever I feel my confidence fail, I’ll look back at these faces.

A logo is being designed, a website will come too but the doors are officially open.  And the prices are good if you get in early during my portfolio-building days.

    Unbelievably lovely. I’m all goose-bumpy. I’m only bummed that you don’t live nearby so I can steal you so as to pay you to be my personal photog.

  35. Sarah M.

    Hey! I know those girlies! Well, I know their mom and dad. We were in Amman together.

    Crazy small world. Just stopping by to say that I am sorry I didn’t meet you yesterday, but I really appreciated all the great comments you had during the round table.

    Congrats on the photo business. I will probably be calling you to do beautiful photos of my son sometime soon!

  36. Shannon

    Your pics are AWESOME! I only hope my wedding photographer is as creative and does half a good a job as you do!

  37. Dumb Mom

    Oh! good for you! You taking amazing photos so you totally should. I started a year and a half ago and it was SUPER hard at first, but I’m so, so, so very happy that I did it. It feels so amazing to be a part of people’s lives in this way. To be there at their happiest moments. Good luck to you, you’ll be great!
