Seven More Sleeps!

I took a step today. Out the doors of the office I have been working in for the past seven months. I'm ready for what's next. My transition phase is over. The butterfly emerges from the chrysalis. From here on out, if anyone asks me what I do for a living, there is only one answer. I am a photographer.

And in one week, I will be immersed in my studies!! I get to spend my entire days for the next ten months learning about something that I absolutely love! At some point in my life, I picked up a story that work needed to be hard, and not fun. Yippee! I'm glad I let that one go!!

Stayed tuned as I check in and post my work. I imagine a Professional Photography program will have some very interesting, creative and challenging assignments :)

Check me out (Bright Point Photography) on Facebook in the meantime!

Big News!

Wow, it's been a while since I've written here! I've been busy building my dreams :)

Remember how I told you that my sweetie and I were starting a photography business? It's happening! We put the structures in place, booked our first client for this fall, and then got our feet wet (figuratively and literally :) at a friend's wedding two weeks ago. We're having a blast with this! I've learned that I could sit in front of Lightroom all day (or night) editing photos without noticing the time fly by. I love it!

Here's the other big news. I'm going to school this fall! Full time, for ten months! And I've chosen to focus on one thing I love - photography! The program is amazing and exciting and two of my favourite wedding photographers are graduates. Throw your heart over the mountain, I say! It's going to be a lot of fun chasing after it :)

Oh, and here's a little treat for you! A fabulous slide show compilation of our wedding in June. It really captures the fun and energy of our day. Big thanks to Mark Creery Photography
