This has been an interesting year with so much going on. My son finished up with day care and entered Pre-K. He's just learning and growing so fast. Its just been so amazing to watch him grow, his interests grow and him getting into a few interests I have as well.
My film photography really started to slow down over the winter as prices continued to go up and up on film. And it had me rethinking things. I also had other hobbies come to the forefront and take up my attention, but having hobbies is such a great thing.
In any case it seemed like I took a short break for part of this year where I only took photos on my cell phone and enjoyed that.
But, recently I've been talking to other photographers and even had some people inquiring about my photography availability and really got me into starting up again. Although I love film photography I'll probably just pursue that for own enjoyment, but I'm ready to put in some work into growing the business some more.
I'm presently looking at the camera/lens market to see what I should pick up and things have changed.
So I take small breaks here and there, but I'm always thinking about photography and enjoying taking photos one way or another. I'm excited to continue to update the site and start booking some sessions.
I'm currently working on pricing options, providing basic photography lessons and possibly some mentoring as well. I have several ideas that I'd like to pursue for 2024 in both film and digital.
Also, I still have another roll that I need to develop from earlier this year, but I'm waiting until I finish another roll to get them developed at the same time.
