Leap of Faith!

So I took a huge leap of faith, in order to keep my insanity and my balance and my youth... I resigned from my infant photography position that I had been contracted at the hospital for, in order to concentrate full time on my own business and dedicate more time to my family. For years it has been a dream of mine, to accomplish this. To be my own boss and to take something that started out as a tiny seed and nourish it and watch it grow. Up until now it has been a part-time gig. Trying to do it all while things even out.....I have poured in thousands of grueling hours and given up hundreds of hours of sleep to make this work. Since last July, I have been averaging about 3.5 hours of sleep a night. Some nights are better than others, but after my work day I come home, clean the house, make dinner, bath the kids, play with the kids and then once they are in bed my "workday" for SWL photography begins -- usually about 9:00pm... I furiously edit until the wee hours of the morning and jump in bed for a few winks of sleep. It has been well worth the journey and I wouldn't change a thing. Everyday I see more & more fruits of my effort and my clientele is growing on a daily basis! I am excited about this next step and thrilled to see what God has in store for me next!

Starting April 23rd, 2010 I will be available on a full-time basis to meet the needs of my clients and work on my editing while the rest of the world is still awake and functioning. I can't wait :)


Thanks and God Bless! Wish me luck!
