new year

I've been doing a bad job.../New Year, New Web Design

I sat down today and noticed how I have not been keeping up to date, first of all, with my blog.  It has been over 2 months since I've posted and that's not a good thing at all.  These past several months have been busy I must say.  But since it's the new year, it is time to turn over a new leaf and get the ball rolling!

I decided that it was time that I updated my website.  Try giving it an overall cleaner look.  

While in some aspects, it looks the same, there have been some tweaking.  Images have been updated and the formatting has changed.  I want to push this year and do more things with my photography than I have the previous years.  Every year there are goals to get better, and it's time to reach higher and do more.  

I hope you like the new updates!  I will definitely be working within the next several months to make sure that I can keep my blogging consistent ;)

New Year

I'm sitting here reflecting and thinking about how everything is going throughout the past few months.  I titled this "New Year" simply because I am just now starting my senior year at Liberty.  It's crazy because as I am sitting back reflecting as to what the next steps would be for my life, I just find myself gaining more and more opportunities with photography.   When I first started, I wanted to keep it as merely a hobby, but as I'm going around, as I'm learning and developing myself as a photographer, I find myself being able to really have a shot at this! ;)

The opportunities that I have been getting are amazing.  Within 3 months, I will have shot 3 weddings, meaning that I will have 4 underneath my belt.  Now, I would really say that shooting 4 weddings is necessarily a lot, but I do now have more than enough to have a fairly strong portfolio.  Especially now that I am learning more and more each time. 

I am pretty excited to be second shooting alongside my friend Ashley for 2 of them.  It's crazy because each time I shoot, I am faced with a new set of challenges.  Learning more about lighting (let's be honest, it's probably my weakest point of my photography).  But I really like being thrown into challenges.  It forces me to be quick and creative.  

Well, in the next few weeks, be on the lookout for some wedding bliss!
