Well, my husband and I finally bought our home and so we are now officially "rural" home owners. The place really isn't THAT rural, it's 5 minutes from town in a small community of horse and animal owners. The house itself is in really GREAT shape..But the property leaves some to be desired...We will work on that lol!!
I've been getting busy with weddings this year. An average year for me is Portrait photography with a handful of weddings, almost all of my calls this year have been weddings, which excites me to no end! I picked up my first out of town wedding it's in 3 weeks in the middle of the mountains. The couple come from Idaho, so it feels great to know my work is now being seen out of state! (even if it is only a couple hundred miles away
) I've been using cheaper advertising but more of it which is producing better results then a few expensive ad campaigns, And I am still bringing in word of mouth clients as well. Year 5 of Photography is turning out to be an amazing year ( This is the 5th year of charging for my pictures)
Beyond that, I'm enrrolling in school this fall after all the adventure of 2010 vacations and visitors slows down. I'm am set on getting a B.S. in Ecology of wildlife biology. I would LOVE to make a difference in our world and my calling is animals and their environments. But it doesn't mean I'm dropping photography, in fact I see the chance to expand into wildlife photography as a hobby here.
So yes and Amazing year and I forsee that the rest will be just as Amazing...
Oh and I just know i'm going to win the lottery
