Surely not another positive post?

Surely not another positive post?

Although still struggling with medical issues my business is booming and I can happily announce that not only am I exhibiting in the London Photo Festival next month I am their official photographer on the friday evening :) I am petrified of going to big old London by my tiny little self but I think it will help my confidence no end :) I also want to send a big thankyou to Andy :) aka Mr Baron as he wrote my biography when I was struggling he is always there when I need him for words whether it be writing something or proof reading so a big thankyou and im really loojing forward to meeting you all in December :) if it wasnt for this site as well as getting fab advice and help when I needed it I wouldnt have made such fab like minded friends :) and obviously it wouldnt be me if I didnt post a photo lol so here is 1 of my 3 entries and Andys favourite :)

Wonderful to hear you on such a positive note! You have an amazing talent. It's good to hear that you have been ably assisted by the Baron, who has a very good way with words :)

What a mighty team :)

I'm off to the big smoke next weekend too, although I'm there to do some relaxing and re kindling of our grown up relationship whilst the big kids are safe and well at home doing kids stuff!

I will be needing it after cub camp this weekend :)

Yes well done once you press that shutter you will see all your butterflies disappear

Just wait till you see that sold sticker on your work - that's a sensation you will never forget trust me I have been there

Good luck

Congratulations, Michelle! That's great news! I also know how hard it is to grow a photographic business after a brain injury, in a hugely competitive market, during a recession, so I applaud your progress and successes!
