I’m so grateful to have a place to show off my art and a safe space to show my progress. My photography has really evolved since I started this blog back in 2009. I’ve had many names and even more focused genres of the types of photos I took. I’m so glad, that over the past year and a half I’ve not only discovered portrait photography but also had the wonderful opportunity to travel for it.
Next month cultivates a very important time for my photography. Not only am I taking on more and more projects but it will be the first time I’ve opened my content for purchase and booking. For the past several months, I’ve only done trade and tfp projects because I was afraid I wasn’t good enough to charge for my work.
Even in the time frame of thinking to myself that I should charge for my photography to next month when I finally will for the very first time, I’ve definitely evolved not only in my actual work but in the confidence I feel about my work. I can see that my art is evolving and getting better each time I go out and shoot, and it’s only making me want to shoot more and more.
At the beginning of the year I made myself do at least one shoot per month. In May, I pushed myself to do one shoot per week. The end of June is near and I’ve gotten to the point of doing multiple shoots per week, which just feels absolutely amazing. I’ve even gotten faster with editing. I used to take a week for editing and now I’m churning out edits in less than three days.
