So, I’m sitting here on Facebook like I am every night, talking to Amy. You know Amy, Amy Hedges of A. Hedges Photography. In our chatting tonight, I realized that I have been working with her/for her for a YEAR!!!! I can’t even believe it. To think that a year ago, I went from “stalking” her photography page to working with her, I never would have thought. I had always asked her for little opinions and advice from time to time but never did I EVER think that I would someday work with her. She has been my photography idol for a couple of years now and when she posted that she was looking to hire a second shooter for 2012, I really hesitated on sending in my portfolio. You know me, Miss Self Conscious! And then, I sent it and two weeks later we were chatting at Starbucks, planning the year. And now tonight, we joke about all the craziness of last year and how much fun the future will be.
I am so grateful for all that she has taught me in the past year. I went from using a standard, beginner DSLR to jumping right into having TWO pro Nikon DSLRs and an array of lenses and equipment. My magic credit card thanks her, but my husband so does not. 🙂 I am pretty much fluent in camera-speak, although I still have a ton to learn. Did I mention I can’t believe it has been a year!!!????
We went to go see Jasmine Star (another photographer idol!) in NYC together – our first field trip! Then we took on wedding season, and what a blast it was!
We don’t have many pics of us together because we are very serious when we work, LOL! NOT! But, here are a few. Thanks for a great first year, Amy! I’ve had a BLAST and can’t wait to see what is ahead!
Thanks for the inspiration, the teaching, and all of the laughter!
To the best year and to many more!
