One of the things that inspired me to start a photography business and pursue this line of work beyond the fact that I've been shooting since I was a small child, is that it is something that brings me joy, I think we all need a little more joy in our lives. So many people I know, including myself, are stuck doing jobs they don't care for that keep them away from their families and things that matter to them. I finally realized that I need to do what brings me joy in life. I'll never be as well off financially doing this as my last job but I'll be a lot happier and that is more important to me.
With that said, I've been making time to spend with my family, the people that make me happy. I've been a lot more relaxed and a lot happier by making this decision. Don't fall into the money trap, do what makes you happy. As a photographer I cannot help but document these moments. I hope that if you choose happy, you choose to let me document your happy times with your family.
