We had a GREAT 4th of July weekend! While I'm sorting through those pictures I thought I'd post this, since it's been in my drafts for months now. I'm excited for part 4. Couple things I wanted to add from some responses I got on part 2... bascially, my main point in writing these is to remember all the hard work I've put in to it- so one day my kids will see what their mom did. I'm not saying this is what you can expect if you choose a photography career. I'm also not saying I'm some kind of photography genius and therefore must impart my knowledge to the masses. I know I love it and I'm good otherwise I wouldn't invest so much into it- but I've got years ahead of me. I'm just giving my experience thus far- before time gets away from me and I never document my road-to-photography-perfection. And real quick, ... I mentioned I got into debt for photography but I wanted to clarify. I'm not in any way saying debt is a necessary thing, or condoning it. In fact I'm quite opposed to debt (besides for school, buying a house, etc. the big ones.) So if you can, avoid it. That's kinda a religious belief though (: When I say I went into "debt" I mean my "connie b photography" bank account was in the negatives. At that time, it was a figurative "bank account" that I kept track of on a piece of paper. We bought and paid for all the stuff with our families money first. And from there I worked on getting my stuff "paid off" through shoot after shoot. It was sorta the deal my husband and I worked out that worked for us and our family. (; Just wanted to say that for some reason! If you have any questions about that stuff from my last post, feel free to email me.
