Late night nursing sessions bring in all the deep thoughts so here we go. Each year gets better and better & I’m blown away by the people I get to meet through this gig. So i usually find myself asking myself, how did I get to where I am today? I try to think back to that moment that this accountant was crazy enough to think.. I’m going to photograph people’s wedding days & people pay me a good chunk of change to do it. Funny thing is, it didn’t happen like that at all. It started out by charging a ridiculously low amount, traveling hours on hours to weddings and using every ounce of my free time to invest in something that I had a little fire light up inside of me three years ago. I knew that this gig highlighted a lot of my strengths: making people feel loved and comfortable - highlighting their blessings and making them feel beautiful.
All of my weekends consisted of photography & taking on new opportunities to grow. Family and friends were sadly put on the back burner (I do regret this piece of my story) and I didn’t make any time for my mental and physical health. I put a hold on growing our family because I had a voice in my head that said I can’t be a successful business woman with kids (HA!!) - I’ve never had more fire than I do now that I have my baby girl.
Not sure where this will all take me, the paths I’ll cross & the impact I’ll make, but I’m ready and this ride has sure been a beautiful one because of all of you! - 4 minutes ago
