....and the new adventure begins
This year has been a huge year for me. I moved from the place I'd lived most of my life. I got married. I became a member of the PPA (Professional Photographers Association) and the IPPA (Intermountain PPA). I entered Print Competition for the first time and received my first merit towards my Master's of Photography. I decided to test for my CPP (Certified Professional Photographer). But the the most intimidating thing of all, I opened my studio. It's one of the scariest things I have ever taken on, short of becoming a mom. But since my youngest child is now 18, the studio is in a way my new "baby". As scary and intimidating as it is, it's also exciting to have so many new things to learn. Things that I never had the opportunity to learn before. It's a whole new adventure for me. It's pushing me. I want to be better. I want to look back on my the work I'm doing a year from now and cringe because it's so horrible in comparison to the work I'm doing then. I want to be great, because I know I have it in me. I have the most amazing clients so they have to see something in me or they wouldn't be with me. I want to give them art they are proud to display, not just pictures they hang on the wall. I want them to be sad about the thought of replacing it. And when I say I want people to know my name, it's not that I want them to know me, I want them to know my work. I want to be the photographer they go to because my work is amazing, not because I was the only one around for so long. And I'm confident that someday I will get there. Because I am learning...more and more everyday. these are weeks 3-5. Check back for more!
