i call myself an artist

by Hannah
I'm learning more and more that I am an artist at heart, that beautiful art touches something deep inside me.  You could say that I've grown up with art, having a mom who emphasized time set apart to create.  I'm so glad she did.  I've fallen head over heels in love with photography...and, really, all types of art.  That love has become a part of me now, an identity almost, or a hobby.  My friends know me as the photographer, and if you don't know that about me, you would soon find out.  Because, most days, I can't help but talk about photography.  And I'm fine with that.
 
Just this winter, I was struggling with my future, not quite sure what direction I was going in and what direction I wanted to go in.  I've never been one to think ahead too much.  (As Hannah informed me, I'm "in time".)  And even though I know my direction now, I'm sure it will change in the next few years. 

Starting a photography business is just the beginning of it all.  This summer, I knew I was ready.  I wanted to take my hobby to a new level.  I wanted to do what I loved for other people to enjoy.  To be able to do that is something I have wanted to do for a long time.

So, I'm excited to tell you that The Photography of Olivia G. is officially launched, complete with a rebrand, lots of new information, and more fun stuff.  Feel free to look around!  (And spread the word...when I get a Facebook, eventually.)

It's a labor of love and late nights, and I couldn't be more excited to start this new adventure!
