    Way to go, T'chelle. It's wonderful that you'll be able to earn your living as a photographer.

    BTW, did you ever see the movie Secrets and Lies (one of my all time favorites)? It is about a portrait photographer, in part. But be warned, it moves slowly and the style is not American. (It's English.)

    DisneyWorld, mainly... and then possibly other theme parks (we're debating between Universal, Busch Gardens, and Sea World... it's a big family trip that my aunt and I are giving my parents/brother/cousin)

    Hmm. Drama, I guess. It's a feature film by Mike Leigh about a successful young black English woman who is adopted and wants to find her birth mother... and finds out her mother, played by the great Brenda Blethyn, is white. And there are various subplots. I love the character of the photographer - he's a quiet, unremarkable man who "speaks" through his patience and goodness. I find it a very Christian film but that is not explicit. But every character is seen with deep love, as well as painful truthfulness, and you see the whole film, in a way, from the point of view of the photographer, so it is like a series of portrait shots. It's really remarkable. But one of my best friends walked out in the middle - hated it. But another, a budding filmmaker, loved it as much as I do.

    Best of everything for you, Toni. Portraits are your thing and you should do well but keep abreast of the market and move on when you think it will work for you.

    Thanks Joe, I'm not planning on staying there forever, but hopefully it will fit for the next year to two years

    Spun Silver, it sounds interesting, I will have to see if I can find myself a copy to view

    Congratulations, it'll definitely give you experince with kids!!

    BTW, if anyone is into space, Cape Canaveral is not overly far from Orlando. I went years ago. We found a really nice affordable B&B nearby - it was really more motel style, not the Victorian/Farmhouse Inn with rooms for romance. One of my friends had already been to the Kennedy Space Center; so, she opted to hang out on the beach. Our other friend & I took the tour. We also got lucky - there was a rocket launch at about 3:30AM and you could see it from the roof patio of our B&B. It was a pretty amazing experience to see the rockets glare lighting up the sky at that time of the AM. If I had realized how bright it was, I would've brought a camera. Coco Beach is not the greatest beach, but it would give you the chance to see the Atlantic Ocean, too.
