It's been what seems like an eternity for me to have my dream of owning and operating my own photography business become reality. Of course life happens along the way too. They say that actually getting out there and taking photographs is what it's all about. Let me tell you, that's not all of it. Not. Even. Close.
There is insurance; that would make some people run right there! Making a business plan, (if you do it right), marketing (never seems to be enough of that) and my favorite, building a website. I do believe I should earn some kind of tech degree after this! But you know what? I would not trade ANY of it for the opportunity to be doing what I love as my career. Most people are not as lucky. I do have to thank some people that are very near and dear to me... My husband John for getting the short end of nearly everything, but always loving me. My family and friends for always believing in me, when I sometimes didn't. It's everyone that hits that Like button when they see my photos and for the kind words given about their favorite shot that makes me know this is what I was meant to do with my life. And with that, I say Thank You. Now I can get out there and take those photographs!
