Ok so it might be an understatement if I said I disappeared from the blog this summer. As we all know, life has been weird for a while now and I was in desperate need of something that would get me out of the house and allow me to interact with people face to face, not behind a screen. If you’ve been around since my shop days, you know how much I loved photographing flowers and to be honest it was my favorite part of having a shop – spending hours getting those perfect photos that just WOWED everybody.
When I decided to close my shop, I took my friend Katie Lamb’s “Diversifiying Your Income” course and it helped me get my start here with the blog. But she preached multiple streams of income and once I closed my shop, I only had the blog. So…..I took the plunge with my secret love of photography and started photographing families here in my area. We have a ton of photographers here (as does everywhere) but no family photographers in my immediate area with a light and airy style. I’ve been searching for one since I had Jase and I knew if I was looking for one, there probably were other mamas wishing the same thing existed. So I just did it myself!
And I’ve LOVEDDDD it. My business took off very quickly thanks to Katie’s “Mastering the Light and Airy Style” course that I took in the spring in preparation for starting all this. I’ve secretly loved photography for 15+ years but always felt too nervous about all the details of doing it as a business to ever attempt it. Thanks to her course where she covered everything from the client experience to locations, to lighting, to posing, and editing, I finally felt confident enough to chase this dream as a business.
I guess the saying is right that it’s never too late to chase a dream. So that’s where I was this summer and fall – chasing light in flower fields with sweet families.
