What a week!

There is so much happening this week that I can not begin to express my happiness. This week I found out that two photo stock agencies have accepted me as a contributor. A selection of my images are now available on Shutterstock and Dreamstime to be licensed for commercial use. That is a total of three agencies that I am working with now. More images will be added to them all over the next few weeks. The second bit of fabulous news is one of my photos is being published in Photographer’s Forum’s “Best of Photography 2014” table top book; this will be my first photograph to be published in a book.

The best part of the week was the moment I told my teenage son and daughter of my achievements and the look of pride that they had on their face for me. I will never forget that moment; I was so moved by the moment that I broke out into uncontrollable tears of joy. We have been through so much since my car accident, being able to show my children that hard work, no matter what you are being faced with, does pay off…and it is an absolutely priceless feeling.

…and I couldn’t have timed this post any better if I tried for this weeks Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

    Hello! How awesome. Congratulations on your many accomplishments! There is truly nothing better than when your kids are proud of what we do as parents. If no one else ever acknowledges what parents do, that’s okay because it’s the acknowledgement from our kids that count! Thank you for visiting my blog and following. I am now following you also and can’t wait to get better acquainted with your photo-fabulous blog! Have a great evening! 🙂

      Thank you Sporterhall, I appreciate you stopping by and your kind words. I really liked your blog as well, I look forward to seeing more! Have a great day! I use to live in New York as a child, your photos of Watkins Glenn brought back some fond memories and it reminded me that I really need to get back up there soon!

        You’re welcome and I’m glad you like my blog as well. Yes, those Watkins Glenn photos are compliments of my fellow blogger friend Justin. He brings life to anything in front of his camera lens. Take care!
