I'm having one of those "I f*cking love my job" moments. And to think that 3 years ago I was crying myself to sleep stressing my little heart out over what the heck I was going to do with my life. 
Whilst I still love acting (it will always be my first love), I struggled with the volatile nature of the industry. Jumping through never ending hoops relentlessly seeking approval and relinquishing control to so many factors (that often had nothing to do with me) was soul destroying. I didn't want my livelihood to depend on how I looked or what my industry profile was anymore. 
So tumbling heart-first into a career as a photographer has quite literally saved my life. I get to work on projects I'm bonkers passionate about, meet fascinating people and hear their incredible stories as I capture them. 
And even though owning my own business is crazy hard work (and I've willingly tossed the concept of work/life balance out the window) I love it so deeply and 100% wouldn't have it any other way! 
With so much love + stupid amounts of gratitude, Peanut x

  • meeluanistynIf you really love what you do, then you're never really 'working' - it's just fun you get paid for. I hope Canon provide you with a few freebies along the way as you do a great job of showing what their cameras and lenses can do in the right hands. My 7D sits in a camera bag - I long ago accepted my limitations at photography and just admire others' work.
