I arrive. Nervous of coarse. This part is off the topic of me arriving but it is necessary for the story... I have this really cute camera strap courtesy of August Blossoms. Anyways the birthday mom compliments it, I reply "thanks I got it on Etsy" me being awkward then followed that up with "have you heard of that before?" like who doesn't know what Etsy is. So she says yes and we move on.
This is my strap in case you were dying from the curiosity
I started complimenting her decor, asking her if she made some of the stuff. She says "yeah I actually have a shop on etsy..." ummm cool! Stupid me me asking this lady is she had ever heard of it, and she has a shop on there. If you ever want any poms for a party she does a great job, Go check out her shop DecoPOMS and tell her Amanda from Lillys & Lollipops sent you!
I finished the party, and I became more nervous than I was to photograph the party. I emailed her a couple days ago just updating her, letting her know I was done editing and I should have to pictures to her very soon. She asked if she could have a little preview. I was nervous but I sent 5 pictures. She emailed me back "I'm not even kidding when I say I'm in tears, the pictures are beautiful."
This email made my week! I made some one cry and I'm happy about. This just reassured me I want to continue on with photography. This is why I am doing this. I'm creating memories for people. I spent 5 years working in a salon making people feel pretty, and that was a great feeling, but not like this, this is different because I created a keepsake, I preserved memories that will last forever. It's a great feeling and I can't wait to create more memories!
