After a lot of soul-searching, I've realized that running a photography business doesn't make me happy. Truly, it's the "business" part of it that I just don't like, and it is something that I am not naturally adept at. Don't get me wrong-- I love meeting new people, and I love taking photos, but I just don't want to run a business anymore. I want to take photos whenever and wherever I feel like it, and not worry if anyone will like them but myself. And, the busier I get with photography, the fewer pictures I end up taking of my own kids. I've just gotten to the point where it's not worth it, really!
Anyway... I will still be taking pictures, since that's who I am, and will be posting them on this blogsite instead. I have a few sessions still on the books, and I will absolutely still honor those, but after that? I am a hobbyist! And I couldn't be more excited! I plan to take lots of nature photos, as well as photos of friends and family. And I plan to be much happier. :)
