Who am I, You Ask?

That is a question I’ve been trying to figure out for years. I think most people don’t really know who they are until they’ve reached the end. Maybe even then they still don’t know. That’s more scary to me than dying; dying without knowing who I really am and what I’ve left behind in memory.

Maybe that question is too deep to start out with on my first blog post. I know most are on here because you’re deciding on whether to hire me or not. Or you’re stalking me, which if you are please like, share, and subscribe at least.

Well basically my name is Megan Parker, formerly Zacharias (Hence the name MBZ. If you ask nicely I'll tell you what the B stands for). I am 28 years old at this very moment and I have been taking photographs for about 15 years, and professionally for about 5 years. I know it says ‘Est. 2018’ which is very true, I didn’t receive my business license and make this thing official until last year. But I have years of taking images for weddings, portraits, real estate, and studio work behind me. I just never really had the confidence before to go for this full-time while not having a job or schooling to distract myself with. Which has been the scariest part about this. Relying on your own skills to make money is terrifying at best. Not only is it scary, its a true test of your own courage.

My daily life in a nutshell, or I guess in this case, a graph

That is why I have decided to devote this entire year to my business. If I am going to do this full-time and rely on myself to not only survive in this material world but also create a comfy future for my family, then I have to go full speed ahead. No regrets (coincidently I have that tattooed) , no looking back, and no doubts. Which is WAY easier to say than do but this is my chance to prove it.

So basically if you are wondering who I am, I am a mixed bag of emotions tied together by a single fragile string that might break at any given moment. With that being said I know I have the skills and determination to make myself successful and create quality content for those in need. Whether it is real estate, portraits, or for your wedding day, trust me I will be there guns blazing and be 100% invested in your moment because without you I have nothing.

Well maybe not guns blazing, that wouldn’t be good on anyone’s special day. Unless you’re doing a rustic cowboy theme where you’re walking down the aisle to John Lee Hooker’s ‘Boom Boom’, everyone is wearing chaps, and instead of exchanging vows you shoot whiskey. If that’s the case I’ll shoot your wedding for free*

*just joking, momma's got bills

So if you're still interested and I haven't scared you away yet, then come join me on this adventure of discovering who I am, what I am capable of, and how I am going to pull this all together in the end. Who knows I might just surprise you.
