so i've gotten two stranger bookings from google in the last 2 weeks (i knew all that damn SEO would pay off!) and the other day I just booked my first wedding! its not till next year, but i'm going the engagement photos too in a week and a half. and i have like 7 sessions total booked for this month.

anddddddd... best news ever. i'm getting the d700 this weekend!!!!!!!!! no more stupid d70!!!!

and, ok maybe THIS is the best news ever Wink my out of town boyfriend finally found a job here and is moving in 3 weeks!!! love love love.

i'm hoping and praying i will be able to quit my day job and go full prof photog by march of next year. maybe sooner if i can keep a steady 4 or more sessions per month. i never thought this all would actually happen. and never thought so quick!

you guys are awesome. i wouldnt know my azz from my aperture if i hadnt found this place Wink

and because i hate posting without a pic - here's one from my napa trip last week Smile

Katie, that is awesome! I know you post a lot more on ILP than you do here, and when I am over there, I'm always looking at your threads. Your work is really so good, and you definitely have your own style with PP that is terrific. I am not surprised at all that you're getting more bookings, and really hope you can quit your day job sooner rather than later.

that's great news about your BF!

CONGRATS across the board! so much good news - you must be floating on air!

I'm not surprised you are getting so popular - you are very talented and your clients are lucky to have found you.

YAY!!! Good for you! You've been working so hard and I'm happy for you that it's paying off.

So, has your first paid session placed an order yet? Was it a great one? The first paycheck is such a great feeling.
