In November of 2018, I left my full time job to pursue photography full time. Every month since then I’ve blogged what I learned from the previous month. This is month 23. For as long as I can remember, one of my favorite things has always been to watch someone I know sparkle and shine in whatever […]

Going Full Time Month 23

Full Time Photography Journal by Denise Karis

In November of 2018, I left my full time job to pursue photography full time. Every month since then I’ve blogged what I learned from the previous month. This is month 22. Maybe I got spoiled. We hopped on the mask bandwagon in early April and rode that wave all through quarantine. Etsy had listed Click Bloom […]

Going Full Time Month 22

In November of 2018, I left my full time job to pursue photography full time. Every month since then I’ve blogged what I learned from the previous month. This is month 21. You get to define success. This is something I’ve heard over the last several years at various conferences and webinars, seminars and virtual meet ups. […]

Going Full Time Month 21

In November of 2018, I left my full time job to pursue photography full time. Every month since then I’ve blogged what I learned from the previous month.

I sat in my blue office chair, Leo happily dancing around my keyboard, his feet hitting the delete and esc keys at the most […]

Going Full Time Month 19

In November of 2018, I left my full time job to pursue photography full time. Every month since then, I’ve blogged what I learned from the previous month. This is month 18. I asked my mom how old I was and while she didn’t remember, she did say, “Little enough that your feet didn’t reach the […]

Going Full Time Month 18

In November of 2018, I left my full time job to pursue photography full time. Every month since then, I’ve blogged what I learned from the previous month. This is month 17. It almost seems like a joke to write this, which is fitting since it’s April 1st. March was a month that lasted nine […]

Going Full Time Month 17

Every morning I write my daily to do list on a notepad from Rifle Paper. I figure if the list is cuter, I’m more likely to refer to it throughout the day. #logic At the end of January I decided to, for the first time ever, make a month long to do list. I wrote […]

Going Full Time Month 16

In November of 2018, I left my full time job to pursue photography full time. Every month since then I’ve blogged what I learned from the previous month. This is month 15. Do you ever get selective hearing? Maybe you’re reading a book and nodding along with the author until she says something you don’t […]
