I had that moment! Yes, *that* moment in life where you know you are doing what you meant to be doing and everything in life is coming together.
I am so incredibly happy right now! Most things in my life are pretty darn good. I have an amazing husband, a roof over my head, a full-time job (non-photography related), great family and friends! I mean, I’m not rolling in cash or anything, but I am comfortable. Plus, I am doing what I love to do! I am embarking on my journey to be a professional photographer. I have done several portrait shoots, which I love doing but last weekend I did my first event. I photographed a Quinceanera! One of my friend’s asked me if I would photograph her cousin’s Quinceanera, and I am not one to turn down a photographic opportunity, so I said sure! I knew that there would be a language barrier, but I was not too worried about it. Most people there spoke at least a little English and hablo muy poquito Espanol… so it worked! I had a blast, we met before hand to take getting ready photos, then we went to a park to have some formal shots before hand. It was a really good time!!!
Then, on Sunday when I was editing photos… everything came out so good, I got such great shots! I just was looking over all the shots and I was just so happy. I nearly started to cry. THIS is what I want to do with me life. I want to give people the gift of memory, so to speak. I love documenting life and love and then being able to give people a memento from that day.
It was very refreshing! It was an amazing epiphany. 😀
