Life as we know it brings joy, peace, trials, good times, events, marriage, careers, friendships and many other exciting moments. I believe our lives are a series of chapters or perhaps acts in a play. Once in a while, new chapters begin – some small….some big.
Many of our blog readers may know that Amy and I started our photography business while employed in our “day jobs.” My day job for the last 12 years has been SRT Communications, Inc. My wife was employed by Trinity Health and remains on casual status. So, what’s this all about? Well, a new chapter in life. This Friday will be my last day at SRT. Again, perhaps you’re wondering why?! It’s simple…photography has been a passion of mine and has become a passion of my wife the past 2 years that we have been in business. And, thanks to our wonderful past, current and future clients, we’ve become too busy to maintain two separate career worlds. So, after months of thought and tons of prayer….we’re taking the plunge! I’m actually embarking on a life-long dream of taking photographs for a living. It’s beyond exciting! It’s beyond words actually – although I’m very good at rambling without making much sense as I’m doing right now.
SRT has been amazing for me. I’ve learned a great deal while working for this wonderful company. I wouldn’t have the knowledge I do today without the experience and adventures I’ve taken in while employed by the best phone company around. I’ve been taught customer service skills, learned about deadlines, developed people and presentation skills and so much more. Without the experience from SRT Communications, Inc., I wouldn’t have been able to properly move into this new direction. So, for that…thank you! And, a HUGE thank you to the many friendships I’ve made through the years – friendships that will never go away.
So, starting this Monday, May 25th, Gemar Photography will be a full time business meeting your needs – and quicker! Yes, quicker turn around times, more session availability and a busier blog!
With all that writing, we must end with a few pictures. I’ve heard once or twice that blog posts are much, much better with a photograph (or two, or three, etc.!). Here’s a few snaps of SRT Communications, Inc., followed by a few detail shots representing a small portion of what life has been like for many years. Many memories, lots of fun and a part of life I will never forget.
God Bless you all….
