It's only been a week since graduation, and I'm already doing some big time reflecting. I've hit the ground running with my new part time job and have taken on more weddings than I've ever photographed in such a short amount of time. God has been really good, and I think the busyness of this time is truly a blessing because He knows that if I graduated college and started off bored, my life would be miserable. I am a person that truly feeds off of a full schedule (like the ones we keep in school), and little did I know, life would get even busier after college (at least for this first few months)! Something that has been on my heart lately is helping other, growing photographers. I've been trying to go over in my mind the things I have learned over the past two years as well as the questions and roadblocks I've run into while starting and running my business. I want to be a resource and encouragement to other photographers just as the people who have mentored me have been. So today, I thought I'd share how it really is running a business while going to school full time. Plus, I wanted to share a little of my senior session that I'm in love with! Julia Rose Photography did such an amazing job, and it was so fun to be in front of the camera for a change!
Maybe you're student thinking of starting your business while in school and you feel a little scared or overwhelmed at that thought. Maybe you're a student who's already started a business, and you've got so much going on that you feel a little discouraged and are reconsidering that decision. I hope my advice and reflection will be a help and encouragement to you!
I love travel and adventure. I love seeing things from new perspectives. I love to find good food in exciting places. And I love making moments last for as long as possible.
