Let’s give this another try
Why in the world am I starting a blog again!? Some of you might remember my earlier days when I have a very snazzy iWeb blog that I used to update people about my business. It was a very heavy burden for me because I wanted my writing to be very professional and that really held me back from expressing myself in an authentic way. So I let the blog die… iWeb died anyway, so I just let go of the blog and turned my attention to facebook. So why now?
Two main reasons:
#1. I’m pointing my finger at you Hannah Tantillo.
I met Hannah over a year ago when Katie’s violin teacher took a few weeks off for maternity leave. The kids loved her, Brendan called her the funny Miss Hannah. I don’t think we had a single session where Katie burst into fits of giggles. Well, Hannah was engaged and looking for a wedding photographer. This would have all been normal except that Hannah’s fiance Chris plays viola for the St. Louis Symphony. NERD ALERT! I am a nerd about many things- but at the top of that list is classical music and the Symphony. Jason and I have really enjoyed being subscribers to the SLSO and to photograph a musician’s wedding? I was super duper excited. Well, funny Miss Hannah was also a Blogger and a Twitter user. My first bride who really used social media with the same gusto as I do! So I feel like we really bonded and she kept telling me I should get back into blogging. So here I am.
This past weekend I was fortunate to snag some last minute tickets via twitter to the sold out weekend forum at Moulin Events. It was a great time. Jason went to the Saturday Session and I was able to go to the Sunday photography focused session. I was really excite to meet Jonathan Pollack, I’ve been a fan of his food photography for a long time. I just really love networking and I love the idea of connecting with local bloggers and businesses. So with new training under my belt, I look forward to starting the journey with a fresh drive.
So here we go… First official post complete. More to come…. Especially since I have a super secret project I can’t wait to unveil… I’ll give you a hint I have to “keep it secret, keep it safe”
