Is anyone ever satisfied with their About Me Section!? No? Good.
I guess that's a good thing.. wanting to be better, do more, embellish.. to an extent, right?
With that said, I'm pretty happy with where I am and where I've been. I've been very fortunate with my health and support team. I've made mistakes, learned from most, and am willing to make some more.
So far I'd say, there's Tara before kids and Tara after kids. I've learned one heck of a lot from my kids. Probably more than they have from me!
It's been ten years now, as a parent - let me just dust off my shoulders. I'm quite proud of that! A lot of sleepless nights, a lot of tears, a lot of joy. I've learned a lot from those rascals!
I've learned that to be happy depends on me. What a weight to be lifted to finally realize that - and act on it!
Photography makes me so incredibly happy. I mean, immeasurable joy to meet a family and jump into their world for just a short while, document it, then be able to show it to them! A few years ago, I scheduled a photo session for my very own family. When it was delivered, my heart literally burst! I want to do that for people, over and over!
I've learned that exercise and socializing makes me happy. For the last 12 years, I've been a freelance retoucher for commercial photographers. That means, a lot of alone time, a lot of desk time. A lot of podcasts, really! So to get out and socialize at my photo sessions, it's just a double win. Last year, I decided to devote three days a week to my local gym, mostly so I could keep up with those weddings! I'd be a wreck after eight hours of lugging my equipment and keeping up with the pace of the day! Gym time makes me happy. I laugh when I drop my son off at school and he says, don't forget to go to the gym! He knows what makes his momma happy!!!
And beer. And wine. And coffee!
