Freelance Photographer Journey: Part 2

This past month, I can honestly say has been a rough one. Starting this journey in the slow season for photographers probably wasn't the best idea.

I have been mostly working on creating contacts and ideas. Working on establishing the foundation of my small business and drinking lots and lots of coffee. Most of the work I seem to be getting though hasn't come from any marketing work I have put out there, it has been just come out of nowhere. Except I know it hasn't come out of nowhere, because I know that God isn't going to let us fall.

I can also honestly say, if it wasn't for God, we would be struggling way more right now. But, money just seems to come in right at the perfect times when we need it, proving Gods provision over us.

My mind has been consumed lately with a project I have wanted to start for over a year now, waiting for the perfect time to release it. I have been slowly working on ideas as they come to me and laying the ground work. Meanwhile I have booked a few shoots coming up that I am very excited about. One will be as the event photographer for a huge yoga session in uptown Charlotte, NC. The other is the event photographer for a non-profit conference in Monroe, NC.

With our trip to Ethiopia coming up next month, it has been hard to concentrate on business related things. But I know the work I will be doing in Ethiopia trumps the work I am doing here. My motto lately has been the lyric from a Hillsong song, "And everything comes alive in my life as we lift you higher." This song has just resonated with me over the past few weeks, reminding me to constantly lift up God in every season, no matter what is going on.

I've noticed this blog post has been fairly scattered, but I wanted to share with you my journey through this life. Here is a photo to send you off with!

I took this image while at church this past Sunday. My church celebrated its 10 years on the same day as the Superbowl, Superversary.
