When I graduated from college with my degree in teaching, I’d already been photographing weddings for a few years by that point. To be honest, I wasn’t sure if photography was just going to be something I did as a “hobby” or if I could realistically make a career out of it
I dug a little deeper and really wanted to pin point what was holding me back. Overtime, I realized the fear I carried was that if photography became my sole income, I’d grow to resent it. In my experience, it seemed like all adults treated work as a chore. They didn’t enjoy it. They didn’t look forward to it. So I honestly assumed that if you really loved what you did, you’d probably just end up growing to resent it!
That doesn’t have to be your story. It certainly wasn’t mine. When you find what lights you up, I guarantee you’ll want to find a way to keep that spark alive. For me, that’s traveling and making time to be creative. If I find myself in a creative rut, I go out and shoot for the fun of it.
What have you been secretly wanting to try? What lights you up? You’re never “too old” to start pursuing your passion and, dare I say, make a career out it!✨
