The Monday after

I woke up this morning feeling good about today. Don't ask me why (just yet) but its going to be a good day. This past weekend may have something to do with it or the fact that I had an extra hour to sleep because of Daylight Savings Time? Possibly. I don't know, but I'm certainly looking forward to a week of new opportunities and blessings.

Saturday, I was the main photographer, for the first time I might add, at a wedding! Boy did I have tons of emotions running through me & I wasn't even the bride. I couldn't sleep the night before, I doubled and tripled checked my my equipment before leaving to make sure I wasn't forgetting anything... I'm going to be completely honest, there were times when it crossed my mind that maybe I wasn't fit to do this just yet, but on Saturday once the day started rolling it was pretty much non-stop and very exhilerating! On my drive back home once it was all said and done I realized I wanted to be doing this for the rest of my life. Wedding photography. Yup my first official wedding and I'm hooked! Yesterday I went through some of the images & I love them! Cannot wait to share :)

Has there ever been a time in your life where you were scared to do something yet you did it and were pleased with the outcome? Please share, I'd love to hear from YOU!

And because a post is always better with a picture I leave you Troy & Lola - they are always soo happy to see me each time I get home!


  1. I can't wait to see the pictures, B! I got hooked on wedding photography the first time I second shot. I knew that I wanted to do that for the rest of my life! I was sooooooo scared and nervous- almost wanted to back out. But so glad I didn't! <3

  2. Congratulations Belinda!!! I'm very proud of you!!

  3. Way to go Belinda! Sorry I couldn't second shoot with you.. but im sure you rocked it out! I can't wait to see the pics.. hope you get a chance to rest up today and get to sleep in with your babies :)

  4. Thx Renee!

    D, I've never got the opportunity to second shoot but after doing this wedding thats all I wanna do now ;) Doesn't it just feel awesome to face those fears?!

  5. Me too, can't wait to see the pictures =). I remember when I did my 1st wedding coverage. I only slept 4 hrs, and on that day, I too was nervous, but after 10 mints. The "Photographer" in me just kicks into gear, and I was on a roll, non-stop. Never say never, until you try it 1st.

  6. Kris you were beyond awesome & it was such a pleasure to work alongside you! Thx for all your help!!!
    Sandy, no worries hopefully we'll get a chance to work together soon :)

  8. Oh I think I'm the most anxious on wanting to see the pictures! You were absolutely great Belinda!!!! I'm glad you got to do this and it makes me feel good that you enjoyed it and were pleased with what you accomplished! Love ya<3
