A good time to blog

It's my birthday! Happy Birthday to me! 26 years and counting... ha

It's actually a really awkward time in my life right now for a birthday. Especially in the second half of my mid-twenties. I've never been so confused!

I don't think I would be confused if I had some control over the direction I want to go in. The waiting game makes you want to give up and try new things. I really think economic development is the right field for me, but I'm starting to wonder if I should take a break for a little while and try something else. The more I look at photographers' websites, the more I regret not looking more into a career in photography. I know I don't have the same amount of experience and talent as a lot of these people, but I think I have the personality and skills to manage a website and small business.

For instance, I do stuff like this ( www.tiawilliams.smugmug.com ) for fun as is. And, obviously, I have a blog. It wouldn't be all that hard to combine the two.

Regardless, I'm having fun learning more about my camera and trying some new things. Sarah and I are going to ride our bikes around Charleston this weekend and take some pictures as well.... that project is definitely overdue!

I know something will open up eventually... it's just a sucky market. I don't think I got the Vienna job since I haven't heard from them... but I'm trying to remind myself that being 1 of 6 to get called for an interview (out of over 100 apps) is an honor. It's just not going to be an easy process. Maybe my paper getting published in the Upstate Alliance newsletter will prove to be helpful!

For now, I have pretty pictures to play with and maybe a few to frame. I thought I'd take a shot at selling some prints at the flea market or at a community festival. We shall see.

About Me

My photo
Tia Nicole Photography has launched this summer after many practice photo sessions and the encouragement of some dear friends and family ("Life Through Tia's Lens" was a recommendation of my good friend, Kristin, who has been an avid supporter the whole way through!). This blog has documented the process from the beginning and also dates back to some older rantings during grad school and football seasons. Feel free to get to know me and my work. I like to focus primarily on natural shots, true emotions and beautiful landscapes. I also absolutely adore kids and pets so you will find a good bit of my work in these areas. Feel free to contact me anytime! I love blog comments!

My pup, Rylynn!
