Today I accepted a seven day blogging challenge from Alex Beadon. She has become an amazing influence in my life and I’m soooo excited to begin this journey.
I have to say that I have started writing this post at least six different times and deleted every one of them. It shouldn’t be that hard to write an introduction to yourself right?!
So here it goes. Hi :) My name is Elizabeth, and I live in Wisconsin. I love photography, baking, traveling and spending time outdoors. I am married to the most amazing man and we have two cats and a dog. I am absolutely obsessed with vintage things and love taking outdated items and giving them a new life.
I started blogging as a way to showcase my photo shoots since I don't have a website. Since I only do photography on the side, my posts were very few and far between so I started blogging about other things going on in my life, craft projects, recipes and things like that. I guess I just really wanted it to be a place where I could share everything.
My blog started as being for my family and clients that I worked with. I guess it was also for me...to write about whatever I wanted. There sadly isn't much direction with it but I know that with time, I will get it to exactly where I want it to be :)
I'm really proud at how far I've come with finally get my nature photography out in the public to buy. It was something I had wanted to do for soooo long and I was finally given the opportunity to have it displayed in a local art gallery. Since putting up my display, I've wanted to expand my selling even more to selling online...but I haven't made that jump yet. I guess it's been out of fear that people won't actually want to buy my photography. Regardless, I'm still working on getting a site set up, working through my fear of being out for the world to see, and figuring out what my best images are.
In the end, I really just want people to enjoy seeing what I'm working on and being a part of my life...no matter how small that part is. Maybe you will see a craft project you want to try, or see a recipe that looks really good to you, or maybe you like my portrait photography and would like to work with me. No matter what, I just hope you enjoy reading what I share.
WHEW!!! I made it to the end! I hope you enjoyed my day one challenge of introducing myself and seeing a little peak in to my life. If you did, PLEASE leave a comment at the bottom :) I'd LOVE to hear from you!!!
Can't wait to see what day 2 of the challenge has in store for me! AND YOU!!!
