Having April on the podcast was a joy!
I used to be in radio and was tired of selling my soul to the "god of radio" and quit, but I had poured my life into radio and didn't have any idea about what I wanted to do with my life. My husband suggested that I start selling my photography and I laughed at him, but found myself later telling a friend that I would be interested in being her first featured artist during a first Friday. It was a great success so I then began selling artwork and charging for portrait sessions. I later knew I really wanted to get involved in weddings and I had a bunch of friends getting married that year so I asked if I could practice at their weddings, not be the main photographer, but just an extra person wandering around with a camera, they all said yes and that was how I got my practice in. I then shot my first wedding the next year and knew I was in the right place when I knew I should be super nervous but was cool as a cucumber and loved it.
