So now things have all settled down after new year it’s time to look back at 2008 and see what can be learned from it. There’s a couple of things that spring to mind.
1 – Things change… Lots of things have changed in my life this last year. Some bad, but luckily lots of good things.
Work has been pretty tough for a while, I guess the lesson there is that not everyone likes me LOL. I guess not everyone likes that I say what I think, and stand up for what I believe. But hey that’s me, and I’m not intending to change that any time soon.
The housing market has been a bit of a downer, especially since we found almost the perfect house ( with enough room for me to have a studio ) but that’s something everyone is dealing with.
Finding out I’m going to be a father… Well that was a bit of a shock. But a good one once I’d had time to take it in. That’s a big change alright, but hey it’s something new.
2 – I guess the big thing I learned is I love shooting weddings! I’ve never really been a people photographer until last year, but I’ve discovered I love doing it. So much that I now quite proudly tell people I’m a wedding photographer, something I never expected to do. This was helped in no small part by the great couples I’ve shot for this last year. So big thanks to all of my clients as without you I wouldn’t be so into making this business take off. And that’s what I’m really wanting to do now.
So I really feel that 2009 is going to be a great year, both with the photography, and becoming a dad. I reserve the right to change my mind on that one though when I’m suffering sleepless nights due to a screaming baby.
