Why I've Been Away. And The Answer is Surprisingly Not Booze.

Note: This probably doesn't mark the beginning of regular posting again. I know, I know...collective sigh of disappointment. Wait, what? That sounded a little more like a sigh of RELIEF. Hmpf to you.

I've been crazy, madly, deeply busy the past few months. I've always loved photography, and a little while ago I decided to pursue it in a more career-related fashion. I started taking photography classes (in addition to pursuing my business management degree, which I've been doing for the past, oh, two hundred years) and interning with local photographers who I admired. I've been creating a website (not done) and portfolio and pricing lists and real, grown-up business type things. In addition to working my regular full-time job.

In an ideal world I'd be a kindergarten teacher during the day (long-held dream occupation) and a photographer nights and summers. In that world I'm also two inches shorter and 30 pounds lighter, but strangely my boobs are the same size. Also, I have Ariel's hair.

So you can blame my newest obsession for taking my time away from you. My three readers (that figure includes my grandma).

and now the miniscule remainder of free time amg does have is spent helping out with scotty and magnum's fun, new movie. she's too nice!

Mr. Toast said...

Very, very nice work. And consider this: the best part about being a "professional" photographer (besides the fact that all of your equipment is now tax-deductible) is that you can take off on road trips and vacations and call these trips "photo safaris".

Looking forward to more pics -- good luck to you.

My advice to you is this:

Quit your day job.

Go photograph the world woman!
You have found your calling!

Glad to see you posting again:)
