And the 2nd job begins

BeFunky_JPEG Image (69180).jpgWell, all three of our boys are sound asleep so, it was time to start in on my other job. Editing pictures, trying to figure out finances, responding to a few messages about photo shoots & prices, looking at investing in a new camera, looking into buying a domain for this blog, etc. When you are trying to start a photography business & get it promoted so that you can start bringing in revenue, it’s not as easy at you would think–or at least I thought. But, it’s going to be worth it. I’ve had three people inquire about photo shoots & prices since I’ve started. It’s definitely a stepping stone in the right direction. But, who knew that there were so many choices that had to be made.

Pictures are edited. Looking at pros & cons of buying a camera instead of just a charger. Praying that I can get some shoots lined up soon. But, even if I don’t, I have a wedding that I get to attend this weekend & two shoots that will be following next week! I can’t wait. They are free shoots but, it’s going to be experience & that’s what counts. Just wish that it would fast forward a bit. But, I wouldn’t be doing the hard work & I would miss out on all the good things that would happen with my kiddos so, this is when I put the good, ol’ phrase into practice & remind myself that, “Patience is a virtue.”

Just going to keep working on photography & blogging & talking it a day at a time & it’ll all work out.

New Chapter

BeFunky_001.jpgThere’s a lot of NEW going on right now in life. It’s odd how little changes can help you start a brand new chapter.

  • Moving in a month
  • Started working out
  • New addition to the family
  • Started a photography business

These things don’t seem like they would make life change that much but, moving–especially with three boys– it’s definitely going to make things different. We’ve been working on downsizing, heck, I even started planning a garage/yard sale for this weekend & realized that we have a wedding to go to this weekend. But, we just keep on keeping on. I got more cups, silverware, & clothes pulled out to get rid of yesterday. Just have to sort through the boys’ toys & clothes again–hard to know what to get rid of and what to keep with an almost four year old & soon to be two year old–& a two month old. But, we’re getting there–just have to find the magically number of clothes & magically amount of toys.

I started working out using the 30 Day Squat/Crunch/Plank Craziness challenge this week. On Day 3 today & I can definitely feel it! Yesterday I could barely finish up the workout & I actually did more last night before I went to bed. This morning, after doing two loads of dishes–since we don’t have a dish washer–I could barely sit down without feeling it in the top of my thighs, right above my knees. It’s crazy how much it can work different muscles that you were unaware of. But, I am learning to love the burning.

We were blessed with a healthy, little man in May. Such a little joy. His schedule has recently be changing a bit because I seem to be eating something wrong. Poor kiddo & I have been having some stomach trouble the last week so, really hoping that it’ll get better & go away soon. But, other than that, his schedule seem to be “normalizing” as much as you can say a baby does. Honestly, not sure there is such a thing as a “normal” schedule with babies. You just get a little bit of a routine going on with them & it seems to help enough.

I’ve always been one who loves to take pictures. I especially love taking pictures of my kiddos & capturing all the wonderful moments in life. It let’s you see all the amazing beauty in a new light. I have learned to appreciate things in a whole new light & I am absolutely loving it. Running a photo contest right now, hoping that by doing photo shoots with the winners, that I’ll be able to get more business & our name out there. But, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. Ah–can’t wait to get my new camera!

What new things do you have going on in life? Any moves or vacations planned this year?
