doing what we love*
You know that saying: "do what you love and the money will follow!"...well it's true. Really, it is. I am testement that it actually works. Don't get me wrong, I'm not swimming in money but I have survived this past year doing it. and hey, it's not always easy and the hustling can be a bit tiring at times but if you're doing what you love it's all worth it.
I got to spend a few hours photographing my dear friend Steph of Nerd Jerk today and not only is she hilarious, talented and beautiful she is awesome! I mean it. She is and we had a whole lot of fun even when she was said she was awkward and shy :) Me too though. I'm still getting a hang of this whole portrait thing and making people feel at ease and getting them to relax and enjoy the time we are together. I often find myself talking too much and getting distracted ...because I love to hear about people's lives and how they got to where they are at. But don't fret, I get back to the job at hand and that is to take beautiful photos that represent their true selves. And I hope I accomplish that.
Not only did I get to do this today, but I spent the morning in the studio creating art and blogging at Teahouse and now I'm sitting in my all time favorite San Francisco Cafe eating a scrumptious salad and super yummy mango smoothie. This is the life I dream about. Are you gagging at all my adjectives and sappy life right now?! I know... but it's not always like this so I'm enjoying it to the fullest while I can.
so now that I've totally talked up my life for today, I'm going to enjoy the San Francisco sun for a bit.
peace out and happy hump-day.
