friday friday! happy weekend everyone! it has always been such a strange concept…a weekend. i have not had a true weekend since…well, maybe ever. i started competitive swimming at the age of 6, and from then on out, weekends were filled with swim practice and swim meets. once i became a teenager, not only were the weekends filled with the previously mentioned, but also a job. once i got to college, that one job turned into two. no “weekend” still. now, with a more realistic adult job, i still occupy my weekends with a side job at a coffee shop. the most exciting addition to my weekend? being a second shooter for my sister‘s photography business! i am so stinkin’ excited! adam and i even broke down and bought me a very nice, VERY professional camera like my sister uses. tomorrow morning is my first officially hired wedding!
it is a cannon EOS 5D Mark II. and. i. love. it! Lindsey is teaching me how to shoot in manual. it is no easy task, but i think after a good amount of practice, i will eventually get the hang of it, and it will become second nature to me. so far so good. i did a wedding with her last year, but at the time it wasn’t a paid job. she thought i did such a good job, she ended up paying me for my time.
this one time assistant hobby has turned into a full blown second…ahem…i mean third job, being hired for a total of 9 weddings from now until december!
i am so blessed to be in a family of creativity, and to be able to express that creativity not only through here and my etsy page, but with Lindsey Johnson Photography. i even got hired to second shoot with the girl who did MY wedding photography, Alissa Saylor!
this is going to be quite the adventure!
wish me luck! and happy friday!
