Making Friends & Establishing Business?
It dawned on me yesterday how truly difficult it can be to be a military spouse, especially one with a business. I'm not going to sit here and have a pity party, because after all...this is the life we chose. I am however going to take a few minutes to explain my frustrations.
As I was walking along one of the quiet paths, I greeted a ton of other photographers and not one took the time to return my "hello". I understand, we are each others "competition" but I mean seriously? My mama didn't raise me to be rude. I have also read a hundred times (from experienced photographers such as the lovely Rachel Brenke of Rachel Brenke Photography) that it is vital to network with other photographers and learn from one another. I am all about this...I have been fortunate enough to meet some amazing photographers (Lorelei Taylor is one of the kindest) and they have been wonderful enough to answer my many questions. Even though I still have much to learn, I try take time to answer any questions that I can.
