This is the busiest my little business has ever been and I am so very excited for this season. When I started my photography business, I went from not knowing how to use my camera and editing software, building and failing at several websites and having few clients. I used to (and still do) study other photographers work and see just what they did to create such beautiful art... a brush stroke here, dehazing there... I was frustrated and nearly quit several times feeling like I would never be able to create the art the photographers I look up to create in which I still aspire.
I had finally started to get some phone calls when we moved here to Frisco and once again, I started from zero... with the exception of a portfolio...
I am now not only receiving phone calls but I have been featured in a magazine, had some of my writing published in Bella Grace Magazine this past June, been picked a handful of times as "Inspiration" for other photographers on Beyond the Wanderlust and had some of my photos featured on Instagram. I also run pixANDpaints on Etsy and helped design and sold over $600 worth of my prints in the Texas Urban Living Real Estate building in Grapevine.
It has been quite a journey in the last three years and really, it is still the beginning of my career. It is always nice though to take a look back to where you came from and to see how far you have come and the possibilities the future holds when you work hard and continue to educate yourself.
I invite you to take a look at my website and if you are wanting Christmas photos, please get on my schedule. Most families hope for the weekends when the lighting is the most beautiful...these spots come and go quickly.
