3 days away!!!

For those of you that may not know I was nominated for the my pie entrepreneur of the year award.
First I was shocked that this amazingly talented woman who I admire so much would have picked me...
Why ME!

I do not know Lisa McCormack well but as a woman in business I look up to her, she is amazing and she is always so easy to talk to..  I have had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful woman and well beautiful she surly is inside and out. Lisa Thank you so much for the nomination...
If you are looking to buy or sell your home contact this woman! She will make it happen..

So here it is 3 days away and well I am not sure what I am more nervous about the actual event or being in a dress and heels. :) for those of you that do not know me well, I can count on one hand how many times I have had a dress on in my entire life.. Or maybe it is the fact that I am the only woman up against 2 pretty amazing men.

Brad MacMillian owner of the Pound Eagle Athletic Performance Complex and
Jason Driscoll owner of Somatic Therapy and Peak Performance Health Center.
Wow... yep writing this is making me even more nervous lol

It is amazing how you can feel right at home in front of huge crowds at weddings directing people with poses and such but then ask me to be at an event getting "MY" photo taken and talking to people about myself well that is an entirely different story... blush blush!

On thing I have learned from this event is that I have found a new form of pride in myself.
I don't want to sound like some crazy person saying they found themselves but I changed...

I AM PROUD OF ME!
              For all the hard work I have done
              For pushing myself
              For studying so darn hard trying to perfect this amazing craft
              For being a mom who can juggle work and family life. ( still working hard on this one )
              For learning to say no.
              For not saying no. ( these are 2 very different things )
              For most of all not giving up!

Brad and Jason's facilities both change peoples lives every day with their amazing talents and staff,  helping people and teaching them to move past their fears and find themselves... That inner strength when working out at the gym when you hit the point of wanting to give up and then you are over it pushing on...
I have found that feeling within myself and I love it...
It is like a crazy drug and I want to feel this way all the time.

I don't for one single second think I have a chance of winning this award but for the fact of being recognized well it is a pretty amazing feeling. To all my clients, thank you for allowing me to capturing your families precious memories it has allowed me to grow both professionally and personally in ways I could never fully express.

Don't give up on what makes you happy..
I am an average mom who thought she could and did!

Your hobby can be your passion and your passion can be your career!

Reading this over I feel like I just said a speech at a miss America pageant.. lmao
Can you see me know in heels and a dress cupping my hand and waiving..

Wow Kim Congrats!! BUT dont be so surprised! You are an amazing entrepreneur. People need to understand the photography part is only about 20% of the actual "photographer" job. For you to have grown into the photographer you have is only something a really great entrepreneur can accomplish and I can not think of anyone who could deserve it more! All the best to you Kim I cannot wait to hear the results! Keep us updated :D
