What are you willing to risk?

June 06, 2013  •  1 Comment

I don’t like change.  I like comfortable.  Change is uncomfortable.  That being said, I am coming upon a major birthday milestone, the big 4 0!  Luckily, Gary has already paved the path to 40 in our house, but still it’s a big deal and has made me really think where I want to be professionally.

I love my job and can’t imagine not taking your family photos.  Newborns, family sessions, senior portraits…you name it, I love them all!  But I have been hearing this whisper inside me to branch out and do more.  Well after this weekend the little whisper has turned into full out screaming and whistling “hey, over here, look at me over here…”!

The last year I have been dreaming of ways to take “boudoir” photos, although I HATE that word and if anyone has any other words to describe my vision, please, please share them with me.  My vision is taking women’s photos to make them feel beautiful and empowered. I’m thinking tasteful, classy, elegant.   I see pictures of ALL women, ALL shapes and sizes embracing their inner beauty.  I see it each time I look into my camera lens and want to share it with you.

I have been seeing something like this for almost a year now.  One issue has been location, having an indoor studio.  I have been talking to my sister and other girlfriends, playing with words, trying to get this up and going and just hearing the little whisper within that this something I need to do.  Fast forward to this past weekend, when the whisper became an obnoxious phone call and full on shout!  It’s a long story that I will blog about later.  Long story short…a chance encounter, a really, REALLY obnoxious sister, 2  sleepless nights and a few days later, voila!!

 

I don’t know how this is going to work and I am scared.  It is unfamiliar and change and change is oh so uncomfortable!  Will you take the risk with me?  I need the support of my faithful clients to make this dream happen.  Please pass this along and consider doing it yourself!!    I am not sure if this fits fully into my vision of taking photos to celebrate the beauty of women and empowering them, but I am sure it is what is calling me right now to lead me into that direction.  It’s summer, right?  Instead of soaking your feet and playing it safe, let’s go to the deep end and jump off the diving board!  Let’s do a  cannon ball screaming and laughing our heads off together.  Will you take the risk with me?
