This Crazy Thing I Call Life

We eventually all learn this … You can’t plan out your life.  Sure as a little girl I thought to myself, I’m going to go to school for this, then do this, and make sure not to forget that … ohhhhh how things change.  At the tender age of sixteen I met my high school sweetheart and here we are 7 years later, madly in love.  I chose my college and degree to try to shape our lives.  We made a lot of decisions together to shape OUR lives, but still life throws some loops for us.  Its been a fun and crazy ride, this thing we call life, and I’m not complaining … its been amazing. I’ve become such a strong person going through what God has thrown my way.

After I graduated high school, I choose to go to Baker College for Interior Design.  Something I had a lot of passion for. I’ve always been artistic and knew it was something I would do good with.  Of course I choose Baker because … well, it wasn’t too far from home and my boy toy.  I worked like 5 jobs through high school and college, and networking became my thing.  I worked at a camera shop and had some interest in photography but sold the thought to myself that the industry was washed out in this area and dropped it at that.  Throughout college, people would call me and ask if I would be willing to quick snap some pictures … why not I thought. Like always, I TOTALLY overwhelmed myself.  I was taking 23 credits in college, planning a wedding, remodeling/decorating a house, working full time as a waitress, and then on top of that doing an internship that later led to my job at Lamar Construction.  So pretty much, I had no time to even think about where this hobby was taking me.  I began working full time at Lamar Contruction a couple months before I got married while juggeling all the above, and life was CRAZY!

3 years later and I was loving Lamar.  They were family.  I had that “business woman” job that I always dreamed of.  Of course people were still asking me for pictures throughout those 3 years and of course, I didn’t say No, because I loved it so much and took on that.  On top of being a wife … it was once again, crazy.  So about a year ago I made the decision to choose one thing.  Photography or Interior Design.  At the time, I was a little burned out with photography because I was just so overwhelmed and got sick of always disappointing people with my turn around time.  It was just too much.  Of course I missed it. ALOT … and after praying about it for a long time, Matthew and I made the decision that Photography was my calling.  So I did what I had to do and quit Lamar.  I am SO EXCITED for this new chapter in my life but will always appreciate everything I got from Lamar and all my family there.  They were great and I grew so much there.

Sooooo here I am …. wow, life. But how exciting!!! I can not WAIT to do this business the way I always dreamed of! I had so much fun with it even under all the pressure so I know this time around will be so different and so much more fun! I’m doing this the right way now … its a business! Things are still in the ‘works’ but I am booking! I am a Wedding and Lifestyle Photographer!!! I will be booking a select amount of Weddings a year, along with shooting engagements, and a small amount of Portrait (family, seniors, babies, children, maternity) sessions!  While things are under construction (Blog, Website) please email me at LeahMullettPhotography@yahoo.com if you are interested!

Thank you so much for all your support! My family and friends and most of all my amazing husband have been nothing but AMAZING with all their support for me through this transition! I can’t wait to start officially snapping pictures of all you awesome people out there!!! I’ve made so many awesome friends through the picture taking process in the past, and know it will be amazing and hopefully some of my old clients come back because I really love and appreciate all of you!  I have so many ideas for this little business of mine, but luckily I have Matthew to remind me … one step at a time!

And because a blog post isn’t a post without a picture … I have to post this picture I took earlier this week of my new and adorable niece Irelyn Jo … yes, this is what has been keeping me busy the past few weeks too!  Just trying to help my big sis make the adjustment of having 2 kids in diapers! I will post more images soon! Love you!!!!!
