Senior, Family, Business and Event Photographer in Carrollton

I have been told over and over by industry leaders that in order for a Photography business to survive, I have to specialize in one type of photography.  Can you even imagine doing the same thing over and over, year after year?  NO! I can’t either.  No wonder some photographers experience burn out and just decide to quit.  I LOVE being a photographer.  I’m certainly not a rebel, or even a very opinionated type of person.  However, I do know what I like and what I want and have resisted the urge to listen to advice that just didn’t seem to fit my personality or my goals for my business.

In January of next year, 2019, Texas Tradition Photography will be celebrating our 25th Anniversary!  And I can tell you with the most certainty that I specialize in photographing people. I specialize in High School Seniors Photography, studio and location Family Portraits, Business Portraits and Personal Branding, and of course special events like Wedding Photography and Dance Schools and life’s milestones.

So, as I gear up to celebrate this amazing milestone in my business and my life (I am also turning 50 in 2019), I find myself happy exactly where I am.

 

Life is Spectacular!

There is something spectacular about life… what am I saying? LIFE is spectacular!  About a year and a half ago, my life came to a screeching halt. I felt like I was standing still while the world just kept on going.  Have you ever felt like that?  Not to get too deep, but it really gets you thinking.

Have you heard that saying… We are not promised tomorrow.  I hear that in my head every day.  So, now I try to slow down and take it all in. I eat lunch on the patio, I think really hard before saying no to an invitation out and I put my family first more than ever before… especially my mom and dad.

I’m normally a little shy and keep to myself, but the NEW me… the one after my life started turning again, is a little more outgoing and accepting of change.  Life is going to keep moving. Enjoy your friends and family.  And if you do find yourself in a situation where you are not moving but the world is… just remember to take one step at a time and eventually you will catch back up with the world.  Who knows, you just might even find yourself skipping.
