So, I’m sitting on the couch, tip typing away on my brand new toy… a 13″ 2.66 GHz Mac Book Pro. It all started with a conversation late at night in bed about my new career, what stage I’m at and where I want to go. Steve is my greatest sounding board for ideas and together we sculpt the bigger picture. I love that part of our marriage. He’s never dismissive and always supportive. Sometimes I think he believes in me more than I do.
I’m getting things in motion because I’ve booked a few family and solo portraits but I’ve also booked my first wedding in October! The bride is one of my closest friends and one of my biggest fans. I did my research online and then Steve and I wrote a list of all the things I’d need to get set up as a photographer. In the past I’d always thought small scale and it never got me anywhere, so now I’m changing my mindset. I still need an external flash, more SD cards, battery grip and extra batteries which I’ll be buying in the coming weeks. I’ll also be investing in a second camera body but I haven’t decided what model yet.
I’m really excited about everything on the horizon and I’m so glad I have a partner who is exactly that, a partner, equally excited and just as involved. I’m in the process of building a photography site and cataloging images for it which is taking up a lot of time. I’m slowly figuring out ways to balance time between my self, my family and my passions but if anyone has any tips I’d love to hear them. For tonight though I’m going to just enjoy my new toy and dream about all the wonderful things that will follow if I only try my hardest and have faith in myself.
