Hello! As I write to no one because I have once again changed the name of my business. (Formerly known as Framed by Sami, then Sami Campbell Photography, I got married and now its here to stay Sami G Photography). As I look at the number of people I have reached the number stand at zero. Here I am, I have quit my job, my husband has total faith in my but has a small anxiety attack every time he thinks about the fact we are without a second income. I have been a complete and total mess, I wrecked my vehicle twice in the past year. And these aren’t small little minor wrecks, let just say the part you are looking at on my RAV4, yea its probably been replaced. In correlation to wrecking my car, I also tripped and basically threw my camera across the room and it landed in one piece to my surprise.
Why am I sharing all of this with you, well as far as I know I have no readers to my knowledge. But if there is a reader out there, I want to be completely open with you. I want you to trust me as your photographer, so I want you to know my background.
This is only day two and I’m feeling very happy and very nervous. Im really nervous because I don’t have an income. But I’m feeling really happy because I have been up and down with so many challenges that God has thrown in my path. I am a very energetic person and I have felt nothing but like a sloth for the past year. I finally took a look inside and saw that I was really really unhappy. I did a lot of self reflecting and the outcome was a result of, the one thing I gave up was in fact the thing I had a burning passion and love for. That to me in a nut shell is how I feel about Photography.
There is nothing I love more than to take an image and see the reaction of how much the person in that viewfinder feels. I love when the reaction is, wow is that really how I look! And yes it is. I have done my job so well that I fed you the energy to be excited and really happy that I actually captured that In a photograph. Or you feel that you have a part of your body that isn't your favorite, so I find the part that you love and enhance it. For once, being a photographer is really my favorite job. Out of all the jobs, I will always choose to be a photographer.
This is my first blog for Sami G Photography and not the only one. Because now that I have all this time, I will be completing a two goals I’ve always wanted to accomplish! Write a blog and be active with it, and two take a photo a day for a full year. Right now since my camera in going in for repairs, I will be doing a series of throw back posts.
I am so blessed to have a supportive and loving husband.
