So Excited

I'm so excited but I'm a little scared too!  Why you ask?  Cause people are starting to act like I'm a professional photographer or something close to it!

For example:

1.  A childhood friend is getting married.  She's a doctor in Dallas.  She asked ME to take her engagement pictures!  Seriously, she could afford any of the awesome photographers in the metroplex.  She even offered to put me up in a hotel.  Oh my gosh!  I'm so nervous I'll screw them up or she'll be disappointed.

2.  Last night, a high school teacher contacted me.  She wants me to be on a panel of local photographers that will speak to 3 photography classes!  My response, "if you really want a self-taught amateur, I'm in."  She said yes, she wanted me.  She loved the work I do with 4 Paws.  I think I'm going to chew my nails off!

3.  The director of a local non-profit spay/neuter clinic contacted me.  She asked if I would be willing to take new staff pictures for them.  Well, of course I will.  They do so much for our community.  I went in to speak with her today and see what exactly they wanted.  They are so excited to have "professional" portraits taken.  I told her to hold her excitement until after the pictures are done!

And..

Today, the shelter had a full page ad in the local newspaper.  The majority of the pictures were mine.  It's pretty awesome to see your pictures in print, knowing they are seen by thousands of people.  I just hope they help find the dogs forever homes.

Okay, so y'all pray for me!  And send me good vibes to take awesome pictures!!
