almost

today i was picking up kieran at school and while i was on my way out the door i heard a woman saying to another mother, "Yeah, she's a photographer..." something about children's pictures. i know this isn't a big deal really, but it was the first time i've heard myself referred to in this way. i just happened to catch that one sentence and then thought about how odd that sounded in my ears. i'm enjoying my camera and lenses and i've started taking pictures for other people, yet i don't call myself a photographer. i have such a long way to go before i feel i can earn that. only in the past couple weeks have a started saying i'm an "amateur photographer" instead of just saying that i'm "getting into photography". i can't believe how much there is to learn and i don't presume to think i'll be anything but an amateur for a while longer but that's totally cool with me. i'm trying to find my niche and figure out where i want to be with all this. for now i practice, practice, practice and try to get people in front of my lens and hope for the best. i'll get there but i'm not ready to leave the amateur part out of the title.

Thanks so cool, J. I do understand that feeling of needing to "earn" the title of Photographer - but I think you've earned it - you will just keep getting better and better, then you'll be a Better Photographer! Keep rockin' fellow photographer girlfriend!

OK - so I meant to say "THAT'S so cool" - I hate it when I don't proof read carefully!
