Albuquerque Newborn Photographer | Dani Montoya, that’s me. Owner and principle photographer. Since 2009, I have been working toward being a photographer full time. Little known fact, I have a separate full time job. That is to say, I always have. One might say I have a practical mind. Others may even say I live in fear of failure. I say, my journey is mine and mine alone.
Did I believe I would be at my goal sooner? Yes, of course. Have I given up? NO! I will not give up. And to say I haven’t reached my goal would not be accurate either. I have been a consistent photographer since the beginning of college. Always taking steps to better my craft. I am paid for my professional knowledge and service. I just choose to work another full time job along side to supplement our families income.
In the beginning, I chose to have kids before my business really took off. In turn, slowed my progression of my business. I made choices that I may have done differently looking back, but I choose not to regret. I choose to push forward. My kids are happy and healthy and have a wonderful life. A life that I help provide for. As a family, we are thankfully in a stable lifestyle. I helped get to that point as well. Therefore, I am taking all these as wins. These are all steps to be where I am today.
Overall, my goal after having children was to go full time into Albuquerque newborn photography once both of my kids were out of daycare. However, with Covid, I ended up taking my kids out of school and daycare. As I type this they are doing their PE in the other room. Quarantine actually gave me the time to refocus on my goals.
That would be why you have been seeing so much of me and my work. Not only here but on social media, like Facebook and instagram. I inching toward this Albuquerque Newborn Photographer | Dani and Danirae Photography to be running at full time mode, not just evenings and weekends.
Do I know if everything will be up and running right away? Not likely, but I am ready for the change and challenges to come. I am ready to serve my loyal clients as I always do. But I am even more stoked to make so many more memories with everyone I have not met yet. Clients that want to see their moments captured through my eyes.
In honor of my new change I decided to update my website, and along with that my old head shots. I feel renewed and ready for what is to come. Here is 2021 being my year of personal growth!!!!
