Being a Photographer

Since Todd was laid off I decided to take the opportunity to get a job doing something I love... taking pictures. I was hired on the spot at Sears Portrait Studio the end of the month. It's been a very learning experience. I have learned loads more about posing and selling photos, as well as learning that I don't do so well working for someone else. It's hard to have so much pressure to sale a certain dollar amount when there's no commission made and a small dollar amount being paid. That's been frustrating. It's also made me miss being at home with the kids, I love being their mom and helping them every day to learn and grow. So I'm also excited that things with the house went so smoothly so that I can get back to the real job I love... being Mom!

Fun! My DH bought me a really nice professional camera after Christmas-- with the promise I'd take the pictures myself and not spend hundreds at Sears :) I just went there last week-- I broke my promise. :(
I've always thought it looked fun doing that, but I'm sure it can be stressful-- especially when I think of them having to deal with my 3-year-old! :)

Blast! I'm so sorry to hear that Todd got laid off, but that is exciting that you get an opportunity to grow. I know what you mean about working for other people! Hang in there! It will all work out one way or another.
