Day 99/365

I did a photoshoot today. I love doing shoots for friends because even though I put the same amount of pressure on myself-- I know that there's a lot less pressure from my subjects. They love me, they know my work, and they understand my limitations.

We've had it planned for about 2 weeks, and although Saturday was beautiful, bright, sunny, and warm... Sunday dawned cold then grew gloomier and gloomier. By the time we got ourselves collected, composed and ready to shoot... it was downright chilly, with heavy clouds and a light mist.

But, I assured them we could make it happen. Although portraiture isn't how I want, ultimately, to make my living as a photographer, it's part of a set of skills that I need to be marketable, and sometimes the weather just doesn't cooperate.

But, this is my dream-- me and a camera. So I made it work... and beautifully! Next weekend, I'm shooting baby photos. There's a bridal shoot int eh future, and possibly another set of engagement photos for someone else. I'm shooting a wedding in September, and in the meantime, i shoot these daily letters to myself, to remind me that My future is mine to create.

I desire it, I dream of it, and I believe I can do it. It will happen.
