When I first moved to this community, I was very hesitant to let people know that I did photography. There was already someone here in town who did "home photography", and since she was the 2nd person I met when I moved here I didn't want to interfere with that. I was approached about a month ago by the Friendship Centre to do family portraits. This was a service that the Friendship Centre was offering their staff members at no cost. (The Friendship Centre paid me by the hour). I borrowed a backdrop and stand from Sasha, who had first been approached by the Friendship Centre and referred them to me for this. (She is a good friend of mine and an amazing person). Anyways, I took 10-15 family portraits that night, just a quick 1-2 poses per family. Word quickly got out that I also did portraits, and now that Sasha has decided to take the winter off and not do ANY pictures my phone has ringing! I had my first session yesterday, with 2 booked for Monday and one referral already from the one I did yesterday. In preparation for this and in celebration of the fact that I am keeping my job until June, I splurged and bought my own backdrop stand and backdrop.
Aren't these two just the cutest couple ever? They've been together 5 years.
