About the Wanna-Be
I have been lucky to be a stay-at-home-mom for over 13 years to three wonderful children. For 11 of those years (my daughter’s lifetime!) I was a Pampered Chef consultant. After moving to Colorado in June, 2011, I decided I needed to let go of my Pampered Chef business so I could find what my heart truly longed for. It took me a year to let go. And, for part of that time, I was an emotional wreck at the thought of letting go. It was difficult to let go of what I knew in exchange for an unknown future. However, I was ready for a change. Lo and behold, just a month and a half after my consultant status was terminated, my heart sang. After asking for answers for so long, how could I deny what my heart was telling me? I made a big decision to follow my heart and become a wedding photographer! I finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up!
Why wedding photography? Several reasons come to mind: income potential, personal growth potential, entrepreneurial opportunity, travel possibilities (Hello, destination weddings!), creative outlet, and who wouldn’t want to be around two people in love? I also have a goal to be a better wedding photographer than the one I had at my wedding. (That blog post will come later!) Using my wedding photographer as my example of exactly what I don’t want to do and what I don’t want my brides and grooms to experience.
After attending school for so long, not knowing what I wanted to do “when I grow up”, I feel like a 50 pound weight has been lifted from my shoulders. This blog will be about my journey and my life. You’ll get to know me and my photography as I grow into my profession. Isn’t it exciting? And frightening!
I hope you’ll follow me along this new journey.
