It’s taken me a long time to decide what I want to be when I grow up. Some people know from a very young age, but I had to hit 30 to have enough self awareness to know what I was really good at and what I really enjoy. Finally, at 32, I think I have a plan. 🙂
My goal is to get a job teaching at a preschool in the fall. I’m really excited about this possibility and I’m praying for the right fit for me, and for Avary. Just redid my resume, so now I just have to muster the courage to actually hit the street and introduce myself to every preschool director in the area. The introvert in me is wishing there was another way, but I don’t think it’s avoidable. 🙂
My other goal is to start my own photography business. We took the first step by buying a new camera. (I say “we” because I never would have done it without my husband’s encouragement.) But a great camera a good photographer does not make! I have so much to learn, so I’m spending a lot of time reading blogs, articles, books, and anything else I an get my hands on. Thankfully, my kids are pretty good sports about being practice subjects. 🙂
Today, my friend Brenda came over for coffee and I took some pictures of her precious 6 week old son, Marcus. He is such a well behaved baby and incredibly adorable too! Here is a sample of the photos I took…
And, if you haven’t already guessed, I’ve (probably prematurely) already decided on a name for my business…”Small Wonders Photography”. It’s big for me to announce this, because I’ve been nervous to say it out loud. Now I feel like it’s out there for people to laugh at, judge, hold me accountable to… (I know, I’m far too concerned what people think.)
Thanks to Brenda for letting me borrow her sweet Marcus this morning! I’m also working on another blog that will feature more new pics entitled, “while daddy’s away…” 🙂
**I apologize if this blog was poorly written. Do you ever have those days when you can’t write a lick? Well, that’s me today. I wrote and rewrote this silly thing several times and finally gave up. Bleh.
