I am just realizing that this month (March ’12) marks the TEN year anniversary of my photography business! It’s a funny thing, how it all got started. I was watching Discovery Health channel over the in the UK, where I lived at the time, and I was one month away from having El. I was sitting there with one of my very best friends, Susan, once our Nanny, who was equally pregnant at the time. We were watching Baby Week on Discovery and saw a feature on a photographer in California who was photographing expectant women and their families at the beach. I thought out loud how awesome it would be to have photos like that taken of us.
Susan said, “Well, why don’t YOU take them?”
“Of course YOU!”
Although I have always been artistic I never put art and money together. Hmmm, I COULD do this couldn’t I? ‘Of course you can’ she said.
“What are you doing now?”
“Want to give it a go?
A week later I had the photo published in the local paper. and VIOLA – a photography business was born. I got a call that same day, and so it began.
Imagine my surprise when, exactly a year later, I myself was featured on Baby Week on the Discovery Channel. That five minute feature really launched the business, and it was something I was able to continue up until my return to the States, when it took more of a back seat.
So, the launching of a local studio is nothing short of a miracle really, and it’s kind of neat that it comes at the ten-year mark.
So I hope you will join me in celebrating this little achievement on
