I think I launched it on December 5. Let me just say, that just having it on Facebook is great advertising. I booked 2 family appointments, 1 senior portrait and .......a wedding for next October. Let me explain why I'm doing the wedding because that's NOT what I'm waiting to shoot. So my husband's aunt lives in Springs, TX. His cousin is getting married and his fiance emailed me the same day she saw my Facebook page launch. She told me that James (Michael's cousin) and her have always talked about how much they liked my photography, just from the photos that I post on fb and from Project 365. Then she asked me if I would shoot their engagement photos and their wedding photos. I told her straight that weddings scare me to death and that she'd be better off hiring a wedding photographer. She kept writing me back saying that she likes my candid style and that they are very untraditional, and that their wedding was going to be a small wedding. I then asked her how small is small. She said about 50 people. Then I told her that I would think about it. She told me that their wedding should be my first wedding that I shoot.... Basically she bullied me into saying that I would do it. lol! Well, it's not until October so I still have time to learn everything I need to know..Bahahahaa.
So yesterday I was on my way to shoot Kelli's (client) Family photos. I packed the truck and bundled up and headed over to her neck of the woods. I was blasting some Dio (don't judge), when I came to the intersection ,where 29 meets 183, I glanced up just in time to see the Century 21 photo that I had taken. At that moment, I'm not going to lie, I felt a small spark of accomplishment. :)
Finally moving forward instead of being stuck on, "scared."
Well it wasn't the warmest weather yesterday (36 degrees) but I got er done. Kelli's kids were so well behaved, kind of made me feel like I'm raising two wild animals. lol They were super duper well behaved kids.
Well, that's all for now. Thanks for cruising by. Bundle up Texas, it's gonna be a chilly December.
