{this is my game face...}

or as i like to put it - the "determined to succeed at all things weddings" face. And it just so happens, its awful close to my "if i don't get some rest i may pass out" face...humm...

lately, daryl and i have been throwing around the possiblities for our little business and tryin to nail down what we want for the next year. whenever you lose your day job so suddenly, all at once so much pressure is put on your side job to produce a living! i have a hard time with this idea because i feel like in a way it stifles my creativity...i find myself looking for the literal "money shot" versus what i used to consider the most creative defining my style shot...its strange - but i guess there has to be a balance between the business side and the art side of this sort of job. needless to say, i haven't quite found the balance yet. i find myself trying to remember why i love photography. i have to remind myself that its that moment that you grab right out of time and keep forever. its the smile on a grooms face as he sees his bride for the first time...a mom's nervous laugh as she helps with the finishing touches of her baby girls wedding gown...its the sighs when the day is over and the photographs that tell a story of a love that will last a lifetime...its knowing that the images that you capture on someones wedding day will be the ones that thier children's children will look through and talk about how beautiful she was and how much he looks like he loves her...

its these little things that remind me that sometimes, even though you might think you can't edit one more picture or send one more email, you gotta keep your game face on. and you can't help but pull through.
