Our journey over the past year has now brought us to Calgary, Alberta, Canada. My family and I are thrilled to be back and I have to keep pinching myself so that I can really believe that we are back in Canada for good!
I am settling into my new job now too. I am really enjoying my work and am anxious to see the images I help to create in print! I am also getting anxious to get back to photographing portrait sessions. While I love my job, I do not get to photograph people. I really miss that interaction, and I really miss getting the chance to meet new people and watch their relationships reveil themselves to me through my lens! I think that has to be my favorite thing about portrait photography, I get to see all the love a family shares, and I capture it for all eternity! That’s a pretty awesome thing!
Its been hard to watch the calender over the past month and a half because it is the anniversary of our trip to Hallmark. I remember the landmark days so well. Leaving our beloved in house in MI, arriving in MA, the first day of school and then everyday after that when I fell in love with photography even more! I’m watching Hallmark’s week by week page to see what the new class is doing and as soon as I see the picture on the front page, I am thrown instantly back into my own experience….holding that medium format camera for the first time, my first field trip, the first guest speaker…it has been overwhelming to stand back and look at where we are now! I am making a career out of photography. Everyday, I get to live and breathe photography. That’s really cool!
