One of my favorite quotes I read said, “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” That quote stuck with me for some time when I quit my job as a recruiter and was on a search for another back in 2007. After coming back home from our glorious honeymoon for 2 weeks in Costa Rica, the thought of going back to work as a recruiter was, painful and daunting. After careful consideration, I told my husband one day that I could no longer look at another resume, that I needed to find myself doing something else to feel “whole” again. With his love and support, I decided to go back to school and took some classes in photography, but mostly, I am self-taught. My true desire in life was to do something “creative” with my career and I felt this was the perfect outlet for me to express myself with the world. Since then, I haven’t looked back. Life truly is about creating yourself and that is exactly what I get to do every day through photography. I feel very lucky doing what I love to do and life has never been better.
