Renewal, rejuvination, reinvention.

Two weekends ago I had my first "gig" as a hired photographer and the experience solidified my satisfaction with this photography business. I haven't felt this good or this passionate about something in a long time. I really want to be successful and continue making people happy with my product. I know I have a lot of work ahead of me, and a lot of experience and growth to accomplish, but I will get there, I am sure of it.

I believe in order to do that, especially as someone working for themselves, it is imperative to hold myself accountable for learning and staying up-to-date. One step to this, for me, is reading. I've spent lots of time reading, which I love to do, and believe this is one way for me to continue to grow. Even better, I've found some resources that I have found helpful that include many visuals, which obviously is imperative to a photographer.

In one of the books I read this:
Being a photographer means reinventing yourself every day.

How true! This one sentence made me so happy. I think this may just be one of my favorite reasons for becoming a photographer! No two photo shoots or events or families are alike. How amazing! Every single day is a new experience and I absolutely love that.
