I've been feeling sort of quiet lately. I guess you can probably tell around here.
Trying to create a successful business is one of the more challenging things I've ever done. It has a lot of highs and lows, and I'm not a very good wave rider. Yesterday looked as though it was shaping up to be a great day -- we had three inquiries from brides with weddings next summer. Even though we're already booked for one of the dates inquired about, I was excited to have the flow coming in, and let myself daydream about how 2006 may be completely full of weddings. Then later in the night came a rejection from the one we felt closest to getting, and it sent me plunging down a bit. There's always somewhat of a sting that April and I feel when we don't get a job we think we're going to get. Our business is also our art, and even though the photos are of other people's weddings, they mean something personal to us.
I know things will work out, and that no matter what, 2006 will be full of weddings. We have a good deal of them already booked to photograph, and with both my wedding and my soon-to-be-sister-in-law's wedding... there will be plenty of cake photos to go around.
But quiet, for now.
