Ooooo! Naomi is getting the hang of looking further away than just the tip of her nose. She likes her lion and is getting used to the giraffes on her bouncy seat. She just started giving us the big bottom lip when she's upset. It's kinda funny. I guess I don't have much to write about these days except what she's up to. Naomi is my life these days and I guess that's what happens when you have kids. I love every second of being a mom and wouldn't trade it for anything. There are days when I wish she'd take longer naps but oh well...not a big deal.
I want to get more into the photography stuff. I already have one wedding booked for next summer and have been asked to photography one in September. I haven't said for sure on the September one since I don't know where we'll be living. I'm hoping to learn more about lighting and my camera and all that I can do with it. I did get a new lens for my SLR camera and I can't wait to use it more. I am photographing my cousins wedding on the 30th and can't wait to be creative and just have some time to take great pictures. I want to start working on some promotion and advertising things for my photog stuff too. I know that we're moving soon but I still want to have physical things I can hand out to people who may be interested in my work. I also want to look into getting a better website for my photography before May when I'd have to renew my photosite. So hopefully in January I can start becoming a little more serious about the business and who knows what it might turn into some day!
I love to take pictures and be creative and I think it's a gift that God's given me that I can use to His glory. My ultimate dream job...besides being a mom!...is to go on Mission Trips, take pictures and document what is going on and then come back to churches in the US and speak about the mission projects that I have visited. It's got a little bit of everything I love, mission work, photography, traveling the US, speaking to churches and getting them excited about God's work. For now, I'll be a mom, travel the midwest, and take lots of pictures of my sweet Naomi. For now, my mission is here. Just some thoughts for the day. I should do this more often! Have a great weekend. Merry Christmas if I'm not here before then!
