Pale AF, Lactose Intolerant
According to 16personalities.com, I'm a:
INFJ-A, The Advocate
What does this mean? Well, apparently it means I'm a "quiet visionary, often serving as an inspiring and tireless idealist. Advocates (INFJs) may be the rarest personality type of all, but they certainly leave their mark on the world. Idealistic and principled, they aren’t content to coast through life – they want to stand up and make a difference. For Advocate personalities, success doesn’t come from money or status but from seeking fulfillment, helping others, and being a force for good in the world."
I have to say, this is very on point. Almost frighteningly so.
But how did I end up here?
Totally on accident. But isn't that life?
I took a lot of photos as a kid and then fell in love with video, which ultimately lead me to pursue a film major in college. A small art school in TN that doesn't exist anymore. (They were assimilated Borg style by another college I won't name) I started dating my now husband long distance, about a year later I graduated. He had a steady job. I did not. It made sense for me to move to him, back in Kentucky (I'm originally from the Bluegrass State). The film industry isn't exactly booming in this region so I took a part-time job at Target. Then I randomly came across a job offer as a photographer for a chain photo studio. I worked there 6 months, they fired me (I wouldn't take the boring photos they wanted me to and I wouldn't sucker people into buying $700 worth of crappy studio photos. Joke is on them though because they no longer exist. *middle finger to them*), and I started my own thing because I found I really enjoyed taking pictures.
At first I stayed clear of weddings. But ended up photographing a wedding for a friend and I decided it wasn't that bad. In fact, I enjoyed it more than family or senior photos. As the daughter of a firefighter, I love working in the moment and just doing whatever I can to make it work.
That's how I ended up here; writing this sentence on my website hoping there are others out there, like me, who just want cool wedding photos.
