this day has been so amazing I am still processing it all.
First, I got the Kuhn Construction Christmas card done and everyone EVERYONE actually liked it. It is not often in a company that everyone who makes decisions agrees on things in the creative realm, but today they did! Great! That makes life a whole lot easier for me! I will post that soon.
Second, my dad’s BFF emailed my site to a few people he knows and he got a response back that was simply unbelievable. Let’s just say that it made my confidence level go up a couple of notches!
And speaking of confidence, I have very little most of the time. I think that stems from the fact that I’m one of the only people I know without a degree. That is a very hard thing for me to talk about, but it’s true. And it’s gotten worse lately as close friends and family are in the process of getting masters. So today on my way to my first official (yet still unpaid as I don’t feel comfortable yet charging!) photoshoot, I called my sister and made her remind me why I was doing this. I just needed to hear someone say that I am good at what I love. Silly, I know.
Anyway, I was praying that at the end of the shoot I would have 15-20 good shots. I have over 80 that I LOVE! I have never been happier! A lot has to do with the location, Forest Park at the bottom of Art Hill. And a lot also has to do with the fact that I talked to my friend Trish last night and she helped me with some things on Photoshop. I’m self taught and she helped me in HUGE ways!
It’s just amazing how God is working right now. He is truly opening up doors for me I never thought possible. Truthfully, I never would have dreamed things would have ever moved this quickly once I decided to get started!
Let me just say a BIG thank you to YOU. I have so much incredible support from my family and friends. People forwarding my site onto their friends, spreading the word about me, helping me make contacts, helping me start living my dream. I really couldn’t have done this on my own and I am blown away continually by the love that surrounds me.
And just b/c I am bursting inside with my amazing day, I’m going to stop, post some photos and go lay in bed hoping I’m not too excited to sleep!
I LOVE MY LIFE!
Yes, 3 out of 80… just a small tiny taste! Will post more over at Jodified Designs tomorrow…
