The answer to that is absolutely not.
Let me share a little secret with you… I don’t LOVE being a photographer. I don’t LOVE cleaning my equipment, and scheduling appointments. I don’t LOVE the butterflies I still get in my stomach after ten years of shooting professionally right before I meet a new client. I don’t LOVE the late nights editing. I don’t LOVE cursing my internet as I try to get galleries to upload, or orders to go through. But… I do LOVE the love I get to be a part of. I LOVE the relationships that form, the stories that unfold, and the lives that I get to walk in. People fall in love, get married, have babies, have birthdays, build dream houses, have more babies and I get to be a part of it every step of the way. Let me show you with photographs why I have no intentions to walking away from what I’ve built over the past decade. I may not always LOVE the behind the scenes part of being a photographer, but the LOVE I get to witness makes it all worth it.
