If you know me personally or perhaps you follow my Facebook page, then you may already know that I have a day job. Yes, it’s true. Photography does not support my family single-handedly.  I have been an accountant since  graduating college with a degree in Accounting & Finance in December 2005. I came upon photography in 2008 while planning my own wedding. At this point in my life, there are a few things holding me back from being a full-time photographer but I will leave that for another day. Right now my photography business gives me an escape from my daily life. A full day of reminiscing about romance or a couple of hours catching up with a family I watch grow.  I love every aspect of it. And right now I sure wish I had more time to be behind the lens. But that is just not the case. You see I am studying for the CPA exam. For those who don’t know that is a professional abbreviation for Certified Public Accountant. I feel as though I need to finish what I started and make my degree worth something even if I don’t plan to use it my whole life. And who knows if I will, I leave every option open at all times. Circumstances could change in life, and I am okay with that. I am open for change when it is for the better. But for right now, circumstances say get your CPA and support your family but still have fun capturing precious memories.

The reason for this long winded memoir was to give you a little insight into  my day to day life. Please forgive me if my blogging is not as regular as I hope. I am busy with my head in a book studying for the biggest exam of my life.

Here’s a  picture from my birthday weekend to Snowshoe Mountain Resort. It was a multipurpose trip. A great birthday get away and a location for a snowy, cold engagement session. Stay tuned for those pictures. I am super proud of them.

This pictures was actually taken in Cass, WV because we were enjoying our “umplugged” mountain vacation so much we forgot to take pictures. Oops! We have wonderful memories though.
