So I’ve been pretty quiet recently because I’ve been working behind the scenes on something exciting. I’m both scared to death and extremely excited about this and hoping it all progresses how I see it in my head!
Yep, after much thought, deliberation, and going back and forth I’ve decided to open the doors for my photography business. I’ve had a friend in Virginia tell me I should do this for years and I just couldn’t wrap my head around it. Fast forward to our move to Okinawa and photography has taken the front seat since both the girls are in school full time and there are so many beautiful things to see around here. I’m so loving having the camera out and exploring since we moved here last summer.
Add on to that the love of creating photos for my friends recently. Of course I’m super nervous about not getting the photos future clients may want or just flubbing it up in general, but I’m hoping those feelings will diminish and I’ll love this new adventure I’m on.
I read an article a friend posted on Facebook recently about thoughts from people on their death bed. (morbid I know!). What pushed me over the edge on this business venture was #1 – Not doing something they loved and really wanted to do in their life because they were too scared. I don’t want it to be 30 years from now and I wish I had done this. If it doesn’t go as planned then so be it. I tried and I enjoyed it while it lasted!

So, I’m excited, nervous and ready to dive in all at the same time!
For you crafters that visit here as well I promise that is not finished! I’ll have a new page up later this week I promise!
