So I have been a fan of Cowbelly Pet Photography for a while. I love, love, love Jamie’s work – I’m officially inspired! She, along with a few other uber successful pet photographers, created this network called the Beautiful Beasties Network. This is a special network of and for pet photographers and there is nothing else out there like it. Let me tell you, I am just dying to get into this network. But I’ve got this pit in my stomach – it feels like high school, when you really want to get into a super exclusive club with all the popular kids. I keep looking at my online gallery and wonder to myself – do I really belong in that network? I know I will grow as a pet photographer and that I still have a lot of room for improvement. Being a part of the Beautiful Beasties Network is a step towards my own self-development and success. I wrote my application essay this morning, but I’m not going to send the email until I can get home tonight and update my online gallery with some of the photos from Saturday’s session – I need more variety in my gallery aside from just Cam and Brady! I’ve got my fingers and toes crossed that they see enough potential in me and my images to allow me to be a part of something so special. I’ll keep you posted!!
