Life for a semi-professional photographer is difficult. It's a constant struggle to balance a emotionally draining job with starting a business and then familial responsibility. But I wouldn't trade it for the world. It has given me a appreciatation for alot that my generation takes for granted. It has made me more fiscally aware of what things cost and the impact random circumstances have on a budget. It has also made me more observant about my surroundings. I travel around my town quite a bit and meet really interesting people and I can't wait to meet people from the surrounding communities and cities as well. People are what makes this possible profession so attractive. Peace for today.
