JOURNEY INTO THE GREAT UNKNOWN

View More: http://amyandjordan.pass.us/may-workshopThe idea of this post has scared me for years. I’ve never considered myself a writer. I’m a photographer – light is my medium of choice, not words!

But when the subject of blogs came up in a class I took this past May I felt like the only person who had no idea what was going on. I knew things had to change. I’ve spent the last month finding the right design, outlining my goals for the next few months and pouring over photos finding what I want my blog to say. It has been an uphill battle but I finally decided to start.

So here I am! Writing my first blog post. Or at least trying to. In the creative world there’s this thing called a Friday Introduction. It’s were you get to introduce yourself over social media to any new followers you may have and list three random facts about yourself. Even though it’s not Friday I figured that would be a good place to start!

Hi! I’m Sam and I’m the face behind Samantha Paige Photography and I am so excited, and a little nervous to be here but here goes nothing!
I was raised on all of the old Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals and love singing belting out the words right along with the soundtracks. I’ve tried to convince my husband they are the best thing since sliced bread – but he’s not buying it. The funny thing is, he is a big Family Guy fan, and a lot of their songs are based on the original musicals!
I love window-shopping and if I have a free afternoon I always try to sneek in an hour or so. Kyle would say I’m just as good at buying as window-shopping but I swear that is not the case! Truth be told I am a big people watcher and there is no better place to do that then the mall!
My first camera was a Vivitar 110 Point and Shoot film camera. It was amazing. 90% of my photos were of my feet because I was 8 but I loved all of them. If you dig far enough back in my parents coat closet you can find an old Twizzlers canister that has my old camera in it along with way to many blurry photos of nothing. I’ll never forget driving to the grocery store to drop off my rolls of film. My mom would help me fill in my name and contact info on the little envelope and I would get to drop it in the slot where it sat waiting to get developed. A week later after we finished picking up our groceries I would sit in the back seat and flip through each and every image over and over until I had them all memorized.

 

I can’t wait to see this blog grow! Just like the eight year-old at the photo center, the anticipation is killing me!
