I Love What I Do, I Do What I Love

I definitely haven't blogged in a looooong time. Oops!  So many things have happened. Probably. One for sure being that I got a new job back in February. I'm working at a photography studio in Orem. And... it takes up a lot of time! The hours aren't typical hours, so it's really all I've been doing. Especially working all day Saturdays. Horrifying, I know. Oh well. I'm getting over it.  For now at least.

Why am I blogging today? Because I love what I do. At work, I take pictures of a lot of kids, families, and missionaries. Yes, it's fun for sure. But, I'm stuck in a studio the entire time. Part of my passion in photography is the new and creative things I get to do - outside. I've gotten a lot bit down lately in the photography area of life lately because it's hard to find my passion for it when I'm stuck in a studio. There are no new things to do, it's just the same routine thing. Over and over again. Which, is fine. But I began rethinking my desire to pursue photography as a career. My own thing - not my current job. I haven't been loving photography like I used to. And it started to make me sad.

But then tonight happened.

I was able to take my cousins engagement pictures tonight. I got to do what I wanted, and I absolutely loved every minute of it. It's one of those things that gets the heart warm and fuzzy and you can actually feel your love for what you are doing. I love showing pictures to those I photograph and see the excitement and emotion they have. Right now, there is no greater feeling than that. (probably because I'm not in love and all that... hmm)

I still have sooo much to learn with this art, but I seriously am in love with what I do. So I'll keep doing what I love.
