Taking The Leap Into Full Time Wedding Photography


Two years ago I was stuck in a life altering decision. A decision to pursue my dreams of taking my photography business full time. I had an amazing full time job that I had worked myself up from intern to assistant vice president over 8 years!! I helped create systems, build amazing teams, I had my own office, I had a great boss who took care of me and great friends at this job... but somethings felt out of place... I felt burnt out and I was emotionally exhausted (not only because I was a mom of two with a newborn and a husband in the police academy) but a heartache of missing out on my purpose....

It took all of my might, courage and a whole lotta Jesus to type up my resignation letter (more than anyone but myself and God will ever know). I printed it and sealed it with tears. I walked into my bosses office with shaking hands and swollen eyeballs and I sobbed for what door I was closing. I prayed that the decision was the right one, because I knew for an employer, no time is a good time for an employee of 8 years and a whole lot of responsibilities to quit... but I knew that this was the right time for me, Mandy.
