I mean, who wouldn't? I get to work with great people and their pets, be creative, design things, and have some pretty cool equipment.
Plus I get to work in some great spaces...the studio and mother nature.
Sometimes my studio is outdoors. Yes, that's me below as well. Yes, my hair was a different color and longer. You have to keep them guessing you know. My husband snapped this photo with his cell phone. I don't usually do many behind-the-scenes photos, unless he is with me and remembers to try for one. This is very rare, and the solar system must be in perfect harmony for it to happen.
I have been so lucky in my life to have careers that I love, and to work with great, fun people! Now I work with great, fun people and their kids, pets, and families, and I love every minute of it.
While I don't usually show messy disorder in photos, here is a shot of my studio shooting space. Right now I'm in clean and store mode. I have all of my lighting equipment in the studio at the moment, but when I set up for a studio session, I only keep what I need and the rest goes to my studio storage space in our home.
Then once late October rolls around, I will be setting up the studio for holiday card and photo sessions. Last year the studio shooting space looked like this.
I love thinking up new ideas for photo sessions! And I love buying props and even clothing to suit the needs of the session.
Yep, I just love everything about my job!
To see what others in the blog circle decided to share in this week's topic of WORK, start here with Susannah Maynard of Pet Love Photography, photographing Cincinnati area pets for Tails of Cincinnati, a coffee table book for charity.
Enjoy your Labor Day weekend!
