For the longest time, I have wanted to share my actual passion with you all. I know I have mentioned it a time or two, but I don’t think that my followers really know what it is that I do half the time when I am away from Lessons from a Southern Belle…
I am a photographer. Legitimately! In real life! Above is one of my shots from a wedding I shot over Memorial Day weekend. I do have my own business, accompanied with one of my best friends as my business partner.
I love art…I always have. I dreamed of finding a creative path and career my entire life. I dabbled in music, writing, drawing, but when it came to photography, it caught my heart. I never thought I could make it my lifelong career; in fact, I was told by a lot of people when I left my state university to go to art school that I would fail.
Belles (and beaus!), if I had to tell you all something that I learned along the way, I would tell you to follow your heart. Never let anyone, not even those closest to you, dishearten you. Never let anyone crush your dreams because they are attainable. Nothing is too big, too far away, or impossible.
Never give up, stay to true to yourself, and remember that you only get out of life what you put into it.**
