When I think back to the day I got my first dslr for mother’s day in 2010, taking on photography as a business was not even a blip in my radar. In fact, I’m pretty sure the only reason I got one was because my bestie wanted one, and she was so excited about it, she made me want one 🙂 one shoot led to another, led to another, and I started to charge. And I started to love it. And started to buy more equipment because the things I wanted to achieve couldn’t be done with the stuff I had. So I started to charge more. And then I started a blog, and got busier. And kept learning, and shooting and blogging. I never ever imagined I would ever be a part of something creative. I’m seriously the most uncreative person I know. I can’t even scrapbook. But somehow photography lit a fire of creative CRAZINESS under my butt, and I’m somehow making a living by doing something that I love SO SO MUCH!! Exactly a year ago today, I decided to change my business name to Urban Fig Photography. It was not something I wanted to do, and it was something that kinda scared me. But today? Today I’m just resting in the realization that it was one of the best things that could’ve happened to my business. It makes me stand out. It makes me different. And hopefully a few years from now, it’ll be a name that engaged couples from Hope to Vancouver will recognize and want as a part of their wedding day. 😉 I’m just beyond thankful to everyone; family, friends and facebook friends, who have encouraged me, who have kicked my butt when I was having a bad day, who babysat my kids, who referred me to someone, or even just commented on a photo.
