Big Time!

So you might have noticed that things have been a little more quiet around here lately. When I look at my archives, there were time when I was posting more than thirty times a month, and now it's a good month if I make it to ten posts. Part of it is life in general. I have four kids, for pete's sake, and I'm trying to sell a house!

But the other big thing that is taking up a lot of my (computer) time is my work. I mentioned back in November that I was going to throw my hat into the ring of professional photography, and things have been going rather well! If you go to my professional website or to my Facebook page, you can see just how busy I've been! Most of my clients are still somehow connected to me through family or friends, but my circle is growing more every day. I have pretty business cards and everything!

This weekend I have a big shoot coming up. A really big shoot. It's going to be a lot of fun (except for the part where it's going to be 101 degrees and it's an outdoor event!) and it's a major experience for me, both professionally and personally. I'm excited and nervous, but mostly excited. I've been doing all of my homework and getting everything I could ever possibly need ready, so I'm not worried about the technical aspects of the shoot. Hell, I even got myself an assistant for the day!

I just want everything to go well, to keep the ball rolling the right direction. I love photography, and I double-plus love that I might be able to make it a feasible career. Every time I have a great shoot, it keeps me wanting to do more. If I can leave this this event on Saturday feeling the way I did after my last few sessions, it'll be just the bump I need.

And considering all of the BS I'm dealing with in the house selling arena, I really need that bump!

Pun intended.
