If you would have asked me when I was 6 what I wanted to be when I grow up, you would have gotten the usual answer. Teacher, doctor, mommy, or vet. Well, to say the least I am all of those on top of so much more. I teach my kiddos every day, I take care of them when they are sick, mommy..enough said and of course, we have dogs. So, all my predictions came true. And I love every minute of all my many “jobs”. Would never trade them for the world.
The one thing that you never heard me say when I was 6 was that I wanted to be a photographer. 🙂 Well, life throws you in different directions and where you end up, you will never know. I am so glad that it threw me in this direction. I love my job, I love my photography family, I love all the different lives that I get to meet and be a part of.
The other thing that I never knew about what what all came with owning your own business. Now, this is not a complaint at all..please don’t take it as one. There are many things that I have learned, added to my forever long to-do list and don’t accomplish every day. Some are daily tasks, some are ongoing tasks and some are emergencies. When trying to balance family, kiddo activities, work, friends, marriage, etc…..I have finally “thrown in the towel”, “waived the white flag” or in better terms….have ADDED TO THE CMP FAMILY!!!!!!
Many of you have most likely seen her picture on facebook/blogs though the years as she has been a CMP family member for a long time!!! So, when I finally came to the light and realized that I needed some help to continue to grow CMP…she was the perfect one.
Please meet the newest CMP family member..my new assistant…Jessica! (and sorry…most updated picture I have of just her she is still pregnant. No more..baby Teagan is finally here with us!)
She is a mother of 3 girls (whom I LOVE to death) and has an awesome hubby too! She will be helping me with emails, phone calls, session confirmations, and so many more things!!! Oh yeah..and helping me grow the CMP name and reach more families! So, in the future there is a good chance that you will receive an email back from her instead of me. I will still be here, answering emails and questions as well but she is going to be a big part in helping me with so many things!
Please take a few seconds and say hi to Jessica!!! 🙂
Oh yeah….speaking of marketing. I am ALWAYS looking for new ways to meet new people and get the CMP name out. If you have any opportunity for CMP to meet new people, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have fun flyers, post cards, etc that can be passed around and shared!
Have a great weekend and try to say dry!!!! (oh thats right..CMP has a mini…its going to rain!)
