Your awesome Tagline

Not sure if I’ve ever mentioned it, but my ultimate dream job is to become a (wedding) photographer. Despite how demanding, time-consuming, or stress-inducing the profession (and some clients) may be, I’d totally be up for it. How awesome would it be to give time and talent away to couples who are surrounded by, engulfed in, and joyfully proclaiming love?! It’s an absolutely AHHHHH-MAZING feeling to experience and capture such life-changing events! Totally worth the trouble! At least I think so.

Having the chance to shoot and edit again, I was inspired to (re)brand myself. RP Photography? Infinite Photography? RP Infinite Photos? I’m still working on what to call my “business,” but let me briefly explain the meaning behind my “brand”. Obviously, RP is for my name (Ronneza Penalba) and the infinity symbol that I incorporated is for love, passion, and timelessness. Beyond my love and passion for attempting to keep time still is the “forever” kind of love and passion that the subjects (should) have for each other. The brand I created also represents my faith, hope, and love for the sacrament and union of marriage. And it’s no mistake that it looks like a bow; love is a gift to be cherished and to be shared, just like one’s passion and talent.

Notes to self: (1) it’s REALLY hard shooting through glass windows! Glares on glares on glares! (2) And against the light. Oooof. (3) Shoot as many shots as you can, edit later! (4) Charge batteries before venturing off AND bring charger with you if you don’t have a spare.

Man… I should really go back to school for this hobby.

You can’t beat yourself up about it too much. God wouldn’t want you to dwell on it too long and be unhappy. He gave you this one life, and it’s purpose isn’t to be miserable over sin, but to rejoice in His forgiveness.

5 year old daughter:
Mommy I don't feel like going to Mass.
Me:
Sometimes mommy doesn't feel like cooking dinner.
5 year old daughter:
You don't?!
Me:
I don't, and sometimes I don't feel like cleaning the toilet.
5 year old daughter:
Ew it's gross!
Me:
Super gross! And sometimes I don't feel like washing everyone's dirty socks and underwear.
5 year old daughter:
Mine aren't dirty!
Me:
They were before I washed them! Do you know why I do all these things that I don't feel like doing?
5 year old daughter:
Because you love us!
Me:
Jesus knows how hard it is for us to do things for Him. When He wants us to go to Mass, or wants us not to sin, He isn't asking us to do hard things. He is asking, "Do you love Me?"
5 year old daughter:
Love is hard.
*For anyone who doesn't feel like going to Mass today.*
