Man, I sure love this little lady. She’s pretty amazing. And look at those little teeth! The sweetest.
So yesterday I did something I’ve been dreading doing. To be quite honest, I wasn’t sure I was going to do it for a while, even after deciding to launch my business. Yesterday, I told my boss that in two weeks, I will be leaving the salon to pursue photography full time. It was hard. Not only because she’s been an amazing boss, but because I learned so much and grew in my craft under her wing. I love my clients. I love my salon family, too. This was probably the hardest decision I’ve made in my ENTIRE life. No lie.
It’s hard to explain to people who don’t know me outside the salon how much of big deal starting this business is to me. I never thought I would be able to make a job out of my love of photography, but I never could have imagined back then the support I would receive from my husband and family. I know this journey is going to involve a lot of portfolio building and probably some crappy hours, but I am determined. Anyone who knows me knows that when I set my mind to something there is nothing that will stop me. I’m excited for this new chapter even though I’m sad to lay down the pages from the last one.
