I was at home puking. I was about 6 weeks pregnant with my oldest and the big corporate world wouldn’t stop calling.
I had called in. They knew I was pregnant. They knew I was sick and couldn’t get in to the office. Why couldn’t I take one day off to puke?
I finally felt better around 2pm and dragged myself to the couch. I pulled out my laptop and went online and started my photography business. I knew then that I am too independent for the corporate world, I needed a way out, and starting this business finally made me feel free.
The next years were full of failure, but I am a scientist and I know that I can fall down 99 times and get up 100.
I photographed everything. Commercial, wedding, high school seniors complete with a real modeling program, head shots, babies, and even families.
I tried what felt like a million different price points, collections, and flat fees all while being mentored by some of the best business people and photographers.
At the same time, my husband and I were working hard to accomplish a whole bunch of goals while having two more children.
I was exhausted, burnt out, and feeling frazzled with so many directions I was being pulled in.
I knew what I wanted to do, but I couldn’t un-frazzle myself enough to get there.
It was then that I stumbled upon a course that weaved your life’s purpose into your business’ purpose and gave you the words to be able to tell others what you do. (I’m a scientist…writing is painful for me and words can be even harder to come up with.)
That course finally un-frazzled me and gave me my laser sharp vision of what I am doing and where I am going with my business.
So what’s my life’s purpose? – Well, to revel in the created beauty of each individual so they see the beauty of their purpose here on earth.
And what does that mean for you?
That means I specialize in personality tested family portraits for those who love their family, but don’t love being photographed. I believe that each individual is a created masterpiece and personality profiles teach me about you so you can become my muse.
Once I know your personality, I then help families who want portraits that reflect themselves rise above their fear of being photographed and enjoy a stress free portrait session that reflects the beauty of their individuality and purpose here on earth.
So now I want to know….what is your purpose while you’re on earth? What makes you unique? And don’t worry about the stress of being photographed. I’ve got you covered and I’ll hold your hand through the whole process.
