In the last week or so, I’ve been forced to do something that I’ve been trying to do for a while. I’ve been pushed to own that I am a photographer. For a long time, when someone asked me what I did for a living, I would respond with, “I’m a stay at home mom,” or “I am a college student.” Rarely ever did I state, “I am a photographer.”
Since I’ve been catching up with so many people I haven’t seen or talked to in years, I’ve had to put a little thought into who I want to be now. I want to be a photographer. I am a photographer. No longer am I beating around the bush, “doing the picture thing,” or “doing photo sessions on the side.” No more… Now, I am a photographer. I’m owning it.
I’m finally at a place that I am not afraid to dedicate myself to this business. I’m ready to dive in, and give this my all. I want to give my business all I’ve got and not turn back. I want to get to know myself as a photographer more. Now that I’m not afraid to grow my business, I’m beyond excited to see where life takes me now.
In the next few weeks, I hope to define Victoria Simmons Photography. I’m going to decide exactly what I want to offer as far as sessions, products, and pricing. Big changes are happening! I’m going to decide what my “specialties” are, and which types of sessions that I will no longer offer. I’m excited to focus my business to reflect who I am as a photographer. So, stay tuned! Victoria Simmons Photography is going to grow like wild fire!
