Hello everyone! Dava invited me to come over and check out this board. I had no idea there was a photography board on JM. Yay!
My name is Amber, and I have a small part-time photography business. I also have a full-time job which is why my photography business is so small. I have been taking pictures all my life, but until my 1st son was born I didn't do it seriously. It's been a little over 3 years since I started taking pictures for clients.
I have been shooting with a Canon 10D, but ordered a 30D on Monday so I can't wait for that to get here! I mainly use my 50 mm 1.8 lens. I have a couple others as well. I do mainly portrait photography, but have dabbled in wedding photography as well.
I have been married to my husband, Casey, for seven years (in August). I have two boys, CJ who will be 4 in a couple weeks, and Levi who is 4 1/2 months now. We are in the process of having a house built which is scheduled to be finished September 15th. Hopefully everything stays on schedule.
Amber, I'm so glad you decided to join us, it's great to have you!
I'm Dava, which you know, I've been married for 11.5 years and we have 3 kids, Mariah's 9yo, Benjamin's 8yo and Harrison just turned 1yo. We might be building soon too...has your stress level been HIGH thanks to building?
Welcome! You story is very similar to mine! I've owned my own studio for a litle over 3 years, started after my 2nd son was born. My DH and I both work full time and do weddings and portraits on the weekends. I'm not ready to give up my full time job, but we really do enjoy it. Your sons are adorable! I loved Levi's birth day slide show, some fantastic photos in there! I look forward to seeing more of your work!
