Today was a warm, rainy Christmas Eve in Georgia. The weather is like Mother Nature is going through Menopause or something. Hot, then freezing, then moody with Lightning and days of rain. Snow is not one of my favorite 4 letter words, at all. When on the rare occasion it does snow, im over it after an hour and I want it gone. With that said, Ive always wanted a white Christmas, too many Christmas movies I guess, but it seems like it would be so "Christmasy" if it was white outside. Maybe one day my girls will have that opportunity. Ill still bitch about the amount of laundry from the kids changing every time they go outside and the mud being tract in, but atleast I can say we experienced it. #RandomNuggetofKnowledge
I have always been random and unfiltered, it’s who I am. I have a sense of humor, although sometimes it can be rather crass. To most people I’ve encountered it is a welcome quality, but will it hold me back when it comes to my online presence and potential photo sales? I’m not a professional, by any stretch of the word, but I do believe I have quality photographs. I started teaching myself two years ago, after I downloaded Instagram for the first time. The community of like minded people who see the same beauty in the things I do, inspired me to grow my craft. These same people however, seem to enjoy my random comments, thoughts, and stories. Even when I rant about whatever pisses me off at the time. I do not hold back who i am when I post on Instagram. Fell free to see what I’m talking about by checking out my Instagram account. The posts are pretty much a visual diary of my life and the captions are an insight as to who I am and how my mind works. Pretty funny stuff, for the most part anyway. With that said, is linking my photography pages to it going to hold me back because of what I say, over shadowing my talent and content? Will it turn potential buyers or clients away or will it help me build a larger audience? I realised when I downloaded wordpress to share my talent, that if I watch my P’s and Q’s, my posts are boring. I still have a lot of reasearching to do, to see what other photographers post about, I just found this platform so I’m still trying to learn to navigate everything. I guess I’ll decide soon enough, if I can be me or the cleaned up version of myself. Personally I like that I’m too round to fit in square holes, but this may not be the place to show it.
