Photography Updates

Friday, March 5, 2010

Things have really been progressing this week! I have booked two more weddings and have a consultation on Saturday for another!

This summer I have the opportunity to 2nd shoot with Gina at 13 weddings and have discussed the chance to assist with two other photographers.

I'll be attending a small bridal show in April, thanks to this girl paying my way in trade for some headshots.

This week has just been amazingly productive and then I got connected with First Day Photo. First Day Photo is a contracted service that many area hospitals are using to offer studio quality photo sessions in place of the standard subpar hospital photo process. There is a vetting process that I must go through, but I was hired to be a weekend photographer!

And then I got an email from Jocelyn, Meghan's mom from my session last week . . . I included pictures from another session on their DVD. No, not monumental, but she provided the reality check that I needed. If I'm going to start acting like a professional, I need to follow through like a professional. My cheeks were instantly flushed as I read of my gaffe.

Checks and balances, but good things all around for me this week! Thank you God!

So glad to hear things are going well for you :) Oh andddd I wanted to let you know that I met someone online!! haha The guy I am currently dating is someone I met with online and thanks to you and everyone else who commented on my post about "online dating", I feel so comfortable with it now. As my mom said the other day, "As long as you are happy, it doesn't matter which route to took to get there" - couldn't agree more =) PS. I have said it before but your baby is just too friggen cute for words!
