Fame & Shame #9 was posted on August 28th; #10 was posted on November 1st–both in 2012! That means it’s been almost three months since I’ve posted a Fame & Shame and the last two were two months apart. And, that’s way too long! Time to get busy!
- Photo Challenges: Photo Challenges that take a year to complete deserve total shame. I am just about to the point where I am so sorry I ever started this project. I have resorted to taking almost every picture with either my phone or my point-and-shoot. I’m way behind with blogging about the themes. In fact, I’m so behind, when I do blog about them, I won’t even post them as new blogs. I’ll just put them in the queue of blogs in their respective time slots. For now, you can read what I have blogged about so far. I’m not convinced I’m getting the benefits I thought I would when I started this. On the bright side, I only have about five more themes to go before finally completing this monster.
There’s nothing else to shame today.
- Plans, Tweaks & Concentrations: In order to progress my business and skill the way I’d like to, I have spent a lot of nights over the past 45 days or so writing a business plan and doing a lot of thinking. I have come to the decision that, moving forward, I will only photograph weddings, families and seniors! I will also shoot sports, as that is my first love, but it will continue to be a hobby. I will be turning down all maternity, newborn, baby, pet, and other jobs. As enjoyable as these other areas of photography are, I want to focus on my future!
- Mentor Photogs: Tomorrow, if all goes as planned, I will be meeting with an award-winning, international wedding photographer. He has generously agreed to sit down and talk with me about the wedding photography industry. I’m a little nervous about the meeting, but excited at the same time.
- My Daddy! Last week, we had a pretty big scare when he decided to go and have a “coronary!” I had never really given this cliche much thought until it clicked with me in the heart hospital. My dad had a 99% blockage in his right coronary artery—he had a coronary! Thankfully, he was a trooper and he was in good hands! He walked out of the hospital two days later anxiously waiting to resume playing volleyball. I love you, Dad!
Remember. YOU’RE GORGEOUS! (I’m leaving that line in from my last F&S. It’s an important message and it’s relevant!) Until next time, be positive, be happy, be healthy, and don’t forget to be photographed.
I started Ata-Girl Photography Co. in 2010 and I am one of the premier San Antonio wedding photographers who is available for local and destination weddings. In addition to wedding photography, I also specialize in high school seniors and family portraits in San Antonio and the surrounding areas. I am a professional photographer who enjoys documenting the important milestones and captivating moments in people’s lives. I firmly believe that the unique set of circumstances I have faced in life has prepared me to take a personal and genuine interest in my photography clients. When I’m not photographing a wedding, family or high school senior, I enjoy watching my daughter play softball, hiking, cycling and listening to Elvis!
