Since I am home more now, I have been able to spend some time doing one of my favorite things- photography. I have always loved photography and am often counted on to handle the pics at birthday parties, special events, weddings, etc.
A few years ago, I even started making a little side money from booking jobs here and there. I always counted it a huge success if I had three paying gigs over the course of a year. This made me start to take my hobby a little more seriously. I ordered business cards and made a Facebook page for my “business”. I felt kind of official….and then I slacked off. I wasn’t just out looking for things around me to photograph. I was only waiting on the call or text for a money making possibility. This pretty much zapped all of the creativity out of me. Then once we started homeschooling, schedules became more difficult to juggle. Between working full time, homeschooling and the time that we devote to ministry… there wasn’t much left. In fact, I had turned down a few jobs because I simply did not have the time or energy.
Now that I am not working full time, the opportunity has presented itself a few times to start up a little more. I was asked recently for my website so that a potential customer could take a peak at my work. I quickly threw together a shared page on a photo sight and sent them that link. It worked and I got the job, but I knew that it was not how I wanted to be represented.
In the past, I have shared some of my photos on this blog. I felt like it was time to start a new page, just for photography. Now, customers can have a place to browse and I have a spot devoted only to that part of my life/work.
