Since I moved to Moncton New Brunswick 10 years ago, things have really changed. I’m finding so much more art, so many more unique, one of a kind, small businesses, creative entrepreneurs and trend setting people. Maybe that not new and it’s just me; maybe they have been here all along and I just didn’t see it before, or maybe it really IS something new and exciting happening in our province.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about COMMUNITY. About the people we choose to surround ourselves with and to invest in. By nature, I am a very independent person. I like to do it by myself, and took pride that I didn’t have any help. But these past few months I’ve begun to see how very wrong I was. Perhaps even, my independent attitude was one of my greatest mistakes as a new photographer when I first started a decade ago. I didn’t want to have to ‘network’ with other wedding professionals, vendors and photographers back then.
Now I know that networking and being a part of the creative community in the Maritimes is the most important thing I can do! I want to know everyone who is here and creating and blazing trails and living out their lives trying to create the same as I am.
