Change

Isn't it funny how change happens?

It happens daily to each and every human on earth. I love it. I have the tiny bit of excitement in my gut when things go terribly wrong. I love the problem solving. How are we going to change the road that we were on. I happily accept change in most parts of my life. Other part, I despise it. Loathe it. These parts of my life are when you are thrust into change where you can not see past the day you are on. Not that these are bad changes, just different points in my life where I didn't know what was going to happen next.

One of these moments happened at high school graduation (or around that time) but I knew where I was going. I was just nervous. That changed the moment I walked across the stage.

I have always know what I want to do in life. Isn't funny how some people just know. I never changed my major in college. AND I work in the field I majored in. Crazy. I know SO many people who wasted their years on a degree they do not use. (Though remember I am one for going away to college, so it isn't all lost). I love my job. Not always the hours, but I love my job. I still do not want to change it, just add to it.

I have always had the love of photography. From the first photography class I took at SFA. I loved it. Fell hard, I tell ya'! But with anything change got in the way. I focused more on the television side of journalism (obviously I chose correctly). I let the print/photojournalism fall down a bit (still majored in it but it went down a bit). Then fell in love, got married, had a beautiful little boy, graduated and then moved back home. Isn't funny though how you think back on things. My first out of college job was as a photographer/videographer for DCCCD. Then I moved to my current career. (I can still remember how happy I was when I found out). Photography fell again. So in an effort to bring it back. I am going to start a part-time portrait photography business. Why not, right? I have the ability, knowledge and heck even the degree. If it fails, oh well, at least I can tell J and S I did what I wanted.

Major life lesson to those two. Don't be afraid of failure! It happens. It is going to happen. Get ready for it.

So with that it is going! Call me if you want a session!
