I don’t know what’s happened lately, but I’ve been really behind on sharing my Instagrams!! Although not the end of the world of course, it has made me realize that I’ve been crazy busy, so much that I’ve noticed my mood starting to go south… or is it north? .. well, point is, I’m not in a happy place. As I’ve mentioned before, writing is my therapy and not having the time to sit, write and share HAPPY things makes it easier for me to focus on the negative and we all know that is NOT good!
Which brings me to the importance of finding a balance in all I do. This finding balance thing has brought me to REALLY analyze and ask myself where I want to take this love of mine for photography. There was a point where I really thought about the possibility of starting the whole business thing, but as it turns out, it’s A LOT of work!! Thank goodness for those photographers out there who share about the struggles and hardships of being a full time photographer (now I know why they charge so much!!) Educating myself in this respect has helped me decide on what I want to do and has made me realize that I love photography, but as of now, ONLY as a hobby. Having already so much to do every week, I’ve seen that eventually something has to give, contrary to what I might THINK, I cannot do it all (Haven’t we all thought that!) Above all, my spiritual activities have to continue being my top priority, THEN this little hobby of mine called “photography” which can keep me up late at night, just so I can finish editing! Unless of course it’s film! then it’s ZERO editing! 🙂
I love spending time with friends while capturing their special moments and every now and then shooting a lovely wedding, however I have come to decide that for me, photography has to have it’s place, and having it as my “day job” is not what I envision doing right now.
Being a legal assistant three days a week keeps me content, being a wife and keeping house makes me VERY happy and properly taking care of my spiritual activities helps me keep focus on what really matters in life. All this already takes A LOT of time, so I could not EVEN start to imagine what it would be like or do to me if I even started my own photography business! Maybe one day when I leave my day job I can try an pursue photography further, but as of now, I actually love what I do 🙂 Helping people get a Green Card, believe it or not, brings me great satisfaction as so it does helping people learn about the Bible!
I will NEVER stop taking photos and never stop learning on ways to better my photography, after all, our creator made us with the ability to develop talents that we can always use to the benefit of others, I mean really, who doesn’t sometime or another need their photos taken?! 😉
So, in order to catch up a little, here are a few Instagrams from the past few weeks! ENjoy!!!
Oh! I’m no longer just using Instagram, been trying other photo apps 😉
