>> Thursday, June 10, 2010 – Photography
(My kids adore the computer's camera...and it's about the only way I end up in photos these days!) :-)
I've spent the morning trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.
In particular, I'm trying to decide where I'm supposed to go with this photography thing I've started. Weddings? Fine art? Babies only? Seniors? Family portrait? Traditional? Photojournalism style?
How much time should I be putting into this business...more importantly, how much time CAN I put into it while still being a good wife and, oh yeah, mom to 4 young children.
Come to think of it, should I be doing this at ALL?
It's a romantic idea, this being my own boss thing. I've always wanted to own my own business. It's nice that there's no one telling me what to do next. The problem?
There's no one to tell me what to do next.
I love it, yes. I fantasize about opening an actual studio someday, yes. I get an indescribable jolt of joy when I see my work hanging in someone's home, yes. I dream that someday I'll be doing what I love AND making some real money.
And then I wonder...am I even good at this? Am I doing anything unique or special? My "tag line" since I sat down and worked out in my mind what I want my photography to be is "Fresh. Unique. Beautiful." Am I living up to it?
I don't know.
