Clickin Moms

A few weeks ago, I was asked by Clickin Moms if I would write an article on why I chose not to go into business at this time.  I agreed, and the article was just published on their blog this week.  If you haven't had a chance to read it yet, you can find the article here.

For those of you who don't know what Clickin Moms is, it's a photography forum dedicated to moms who like to "click" the shutter. ;-)  There is a membership fee, but if you love photography and you're a mom, you should definitely go check it out.  It's an amazing resource loaded with oodles of tutorials and thousands of extremely talented women who are so generous and willing to share their knowledge.

Clickin Moms also has a pro forum, which I am a proud member of.  They just launched their CMpro site this week and it's a beautiful thing!  There is a gallery of images where you can view of sampling of work from the CMpro members.  The gallery can be found here.  If you take the time to flip through the images, you will see how many amazingly talented photographers there are out there!  I feel so honored and humbled that a couple of my images made it into the gallery.  Maybe you'll recognize them. :-)

Another exciting feature about the CMpro site is that the CMpros are listed in their directory under locate a photographer.  So if you're in need of a photographer and don't know how to go about finding one, this would be a great resource for you.

Kaydence is out of town visiting her grandparents for the week while I get some things done around the house, so I'm missing her bad right now.  And since no post is complete without a photo, I leave you with this -- it's definitely a mom shot, but I love this girl.  ;-)

I am so proud of you Leah. You are an absolutely amazing friend, mother, wife, and all around wholesome and genuine person. I am proud to call you my friend and I couldn't be more thrilled for you with these new ventures. <3

Wow. Just, wow. I haven't even finished reading your blog post over on CM, but you have hit the nail on the head like a million times already. It is such a huge decision and all the cons you listed are what I'm dealing with right now and it completely makes me question whether I made the right choice. I still don't know, but what I do know is that you are awesome for putting that all out there and at least making me feel like if I do end up just being a "MWAC," it's NOT a bad thing. :)

Oh, and this line? "No, you may never get to buy all the fancy equipment that you possibly could if you were in business but remember – rock what you have, take photos for you, take photos for your family, let your images tell a story, and make them a reflection of who you are as a person"? It's awesome. :)
