Working Hard rather than Hardly Working. . .

. . . and LOVING what I do.

I cannot convey to you how excited I am to be doing what I do now. I was thinking today about when I worked at a cubicle job 4 months ago and was so thankful that was another lifetime ago.

A little over a year ago, I made the decision to leave a well-paid job in Atlanta to go back to a job that I had formerly quite because I was so miserable there. This new job was closer to home but meant a pay decrease but I was okay with that since I would not have to drive back and forth to Atlanta everyday. It was funny because, at my interview to be rehired, my old supervisor asked me if I had heard about the plans to sell the company and assured me that would not affect my job in any way. Ironically enough, it did.

As sad as I am that the company closing left so many people high and dry, it was like an answer to my prayers and a swift kick in my photography career’s butt.

For the past two weeks, I have been steadily working away at an absolutely unique and amazing wedding I photographed on November 7th that reminds me why I love what I do so much. I was squealing right along with the bride when the wedding music started.

This is something I was working on today. Isn’t she lovely? And her eyes, I did not touch them in post processing at ALL. They are naturally that brilliant.

GreenHayes_9 I seriously need help getting my workflow perfected and organized and then I will be able to post on here in a bit more of an organized fashion. Until then, enjoy the bits and pieces I throw your way and let me know what you think. ;)
