  • Have patience, will travel (and work!)

    While the transition to living and working in LA is a slow process, I decided to open myself up to more work opportunities and contacted some old friends back in Indy to let them know I am available for bookings. Since it is taking some time to get established here in LA my confidence and ego were taking a beating so I needed something to get me shooting and working again. Well, I am so thankful for the people in Indy because when I posted a message that I was coming back in town for two weeks and am available for Senior and Family Portraits I was immediately booked. Not only was I booked but I was FULLY booked all 10 slots have been filled and people are paying the deposits.

    I am so excited to see old friends and make some new ones with the people who have booked me as their photographer and to start working again. It will be a crazy, chaotic 2.5 weeks but I am looking forward to it and this is exactly what I needed to get me going again and I am once again excited to be a photographer. When you move to some place city and have to re-establish yourself (as I have to do twice now) it can be challenging, discouraging and frustrating. But things are looking up... as they always do. In all of this I hope to convey to everyone out there that PATIENCE really is something we all have to have and this is really a lesson in perseverance. I was ready to cash in the photography gear and think about looking for something full time but the photography gods want to keep me around a little longer. And, that makes me happy! happy
