So much photography and everyday-wise has gone on that I haven't been able to blog much but have so much to post!
It started out a few weeks ago when I inquired about a Craigslist ad looking for an assistant/second shooter for the upcoming wedding season. Since than I've had the opportunity on a "trial run" to assist on my first wedding which has also opened up to assistant/second on many more weddings this summer!
That was a photography weekend because I also had the opportunity to go to Kalamazoo to visit my best friend, Keri, who has 2 adorable 7 month old twins! :)
I'm anxious to show both but with taking over 800 photos in 2 days... it's led to alot of editing!
Aside from putting my camera to good use... this past Monday I turned 30! I have been talking about how much I've been dreading this birthday over the past year. Its not that I haven't accomplished a lot already in my life and am very happy... just a few things that I would of said 10 years ago, I would of/have, been/done!
I came to a realization today that maybe the biggest thing that bothers me is that... I'm not the only one getting older... so are many very important people in my life. I'm scared that my grandparents will not have the opportunity to meet my children. I'm saddened that my children may not get the same relationship with their grandparents as I with mine. Don't get me wrong... I'm not ready to start a family... but as I see my parents and grandparents getting older, I realize how much they have changed.
Truthfully, being 30, even though a few days in, isn't that bad! I'm going to keep improving myself... for example, this year I've already given up pop, stopped biting my nails, and am putting more energy in to learning as much as I can about photography. For 2012 almost being half over, I'd say thats pretty impressive!
Last but not least... I took another workshop put on by Posh and Ashley Made Photography. The subject was lighting but we had a photographers dream day with it being overcast. I wanted to show of a few pictures I took! The best part was getting to share my knowledge of Nikon cameras and shooting in manual with many of the other students. Ashley and Kasey are so helpful and knowledgable... I look forward to participating in more workshops they put on!
