Well friends, I think it's no secret that I absolutely LOVE being creative-- photography, planning services, writing-- but as busy as I am I haven't invested back into mandyshoptaw.com with education or updating of equipment. So at the start of 2017, I made a tough decision that has been on my heart for about a year. Stop trying to be a "pro" photographer... and enjoy life, learn, and grow. No cons about it. Just pros. So that's my focus right now. I want to learn. I want to grow. And maybe one day I will renew my business license and tax ID and all that goes into being a "professional." But for today, I'm going to enjoy just being and being happy as a hobbyist.
