Trifecta - I'm Betting on Myself

I quit my photography business back in 2015 when I left Hawaii. I put my camera down and decided I wasn't going to shoot anymore. I was burnt out, I was tired, I was depressed and I didn't want any parts of it anymore. I had just quit my great paying job in mortgage banking, moved back to the south, turned down a job in Atlanta and got stuck in Alabama for reasons I will not discuss. I didn't even want to THINK about the energy it took to photograph weddings, or feed into another woman while photographing them at their most vulnerable moments. I was truly burnt out and photography made me sad, angry and anxious.

I let myself get caught up in being burnt out,while life was passing me by… and I didn't know how to move around, or through it.

But now I’m in Texas and I’m ready to shoot more beautiful people in more beautiful places, and North Texas sure does have beautiful places. 

 

Being here so far far has been an absolute treat and I can’t wait to dive in.  

 Me anticipating how awesome your next shoot will be.
