When I shot my first wedding back in 2009 I never would have imagined where I am today.  No longer an accountant, pursuing my passion with my own photography studio in the heart of one of my favorite towns.  It's been a journey to say the least.  Being an entrepreneur is a completely different world than the corporate life that I had grown accustom to for almost 20 years.  Even when I retired my finance career, I still consulted part time as it was hard for me to take on the risk 100%.  However, the time came where I realized that being an entrepreneur required more than a part time commitment.  So, it was all or nothing.  One day at a time, I kept working, kept researching, kept studying and kept focused. It hasn't been easy, but, it truly has been rewarding.  Through networking I've met amazing and knowledgeable entrepreneurs and over time I have been able to build a wonderful support system.    A support system that also includes my amazing clients who are the reason why this has all been possible.  I'm still not where I want to be yet, but, I'm happier than where I used to be and I'm so grateful to be on this journey...
