As some of my closer family and friends know, I have decided to start a business* for my freelance photography and art work. I will be specializing in maternity, newborn/baby and family photography. I have been busy putting together a website and learning much in the process. I am excited about this new venture in my life but also a bit nervous. With that said, I strongly believe that one must at least try, and the timing for this seems right.
In life, sometimes things can seem daunting or even impossible, but I have learnt that it is imperative to at least begin somewhere as long as one has an idea and an outlined plan. I usually begin by visualizing what it is I wish to accomplish. Then I make a list of steps I need to do in order to accomplish my plan, and then chip away at my list. The details and setbacks themselves get worked out along the way but the reality is, getting from A to B requires fortitude and patience. I have also learnt that flexibility is important as sometimes plans change or we ourselves change.
Having made this website, I find myself somewhat reflective, wondering about what lies ahead and some of the many “hows” that are still left to be worked out. Life is a journey, where we are constantly evolving and learning many lessons along the way. All these lessons and life experiences, including a very expensive degree for myself, have brought me to where I am today; starting my very own business. So, as I launch my little website and business into an already saturated world of [baby] photography, I take a deep breath and remind myself that it will all work out. It may not be the way I imagine it should be, but rather how it is meant to be. I think putting myself out there is a very good start, for now.
