Today, as I am sitting in my office, realizing my kitchen and my house are a wreck, my office is piled high with papers and books about photoshop and my phone has 7 voice mails on it I realized that I am absolutely the happiest I have ever been. Next to the day I became Mrs. Andrew Brockmeyer of course, although that day was filled with stress and nervous giggling we did survive. Someone asked me the other day at the studio how long I have been doing photography and I almost choked when I told them a year and 3 months. That's it... that's all... I can't believe how every session I do I am learning more and my work is improving every single day. I am so proud of myself. I love the freedom that this company is bringing me and the joy of getting to meet new people and total and complete relaxation I recieve from spending the day at my laptop editing away. I can't imagine my life being any other way.
When I worked at SSD, there were only a few days in 5 years that I can look back and say wow that was a great day, there were many great minutes and moments but rarely was a whole day good. How sad is that? It kills me to not be with my kids every day of the week but I have to say I love my relationship's with them now, we have a higher level of respect and we love each other but I am now the fun one! I don't really discipline but we go swimming and do silly things together. I could never have imagined 3 years ago that I would be building my own company now and loving my life as much as I do. I wouldn't take anything back... it was the greatest journey to get where I am now.
Today, I photographed two beautiful teenagers from North Carolina, their grandmother lives in St. Louis and she was referred to me by another client of mine. We went to Bee Tree Park to shoot Grant's senior pictures and to update Courtney's. They were so much fun, I loved getting them in shot's together and not trying to sqeeze them on a white background. We had so many options to choose for backgrounds it was very hard to narrow down. I thought I would just share a few with you!
