Wow. Today marks 3 years that I have been in business. I'm sitting here just kind of stunned and in awe. I'm trying to find a word or feeling that would sum up these last few years and I just can't. I've experienced and felt so much!
I get so much out of my job. It honestly fills me up and drains me in the most beautiful and humbling ways. Three years ago, I was a completely different person..a girl who was practically clueless but knew that with a camera in hand she could conquer the world. I think today, there is still a huge part of me that is that clueless yet passionate girl. My camera and I have seen a lot together these past 3 years. I can honestly say that owning a business never gets easier, actually, it probably gets harder. BUT, owning a business has made me mature, it's taught me to constantly dream, not to take "no" for an answer, to stand up for myself, and the quiet myself. I see things differently. Never did I think looking through the lens of a camera would allow me to see the world in such a beautiful and unique way; but it has.. and because of that I firmly believe I have a better appreciation for people and for life.
I'm still in school now..I have two years left. But boy am I ready to hit the ground running with my business when I graduate. I have many many dreams. I can't wait to see what the next 30 years will bring.
Thank YOU for joining me on the journey..for your patience, your kind words, your wisdom, and your support. It's people like you that inspire me and drive me every single day. I am forever grateful.
Happy 3rd Birthday, Ali Brassel Photography. 3 years of life, love and laughter. What a blessing.
