Bay Area Senior Photographer {Patricia Rossi Photography}

As a photographer, a mom, a wife, I am glad of  how many new things I’ve been learning everyday! I learned how to be a little more patient, to love, to enjoy simple things in life, to pray, to look back and recognize how much I have achieved! I learned how to be thankful and how to say sorry. I learned  success will only come for those who never give up. I learned how to register simple things in life with my camera, and I am so thankful for that.

Last week, my friend Gail and I were to shoot this engagement session down in Santa Cruz and she told me about this teen girl who wanted to come along to learn some about photography and would like the opportunity  to watch us doing the magic, and perhaps have her senior pictures taken. Of course I said it would be great! While editing her images I had a moment and so many things came to my mind. Looking back at my starting point as a photographer, I so wish I had someone to watch and to learn from! It made me remember again the first time I held a SLR camera and how uncomfortable and heavy it was. I knew what I wanted to be, and I knew it would take a long time.  I have walked a long way, but I know I’m still not where I wanted to be.  I’m so proud for believing on my dreams and never giving up. I love what I do, I love to capture love and I know these memories are priceless.

Thanks for all the clients and friends who have always supported, followed and believed in my potential!  You all mean so much to me!

Enjoy your Friday!
