So much has happened in my life, and the life of my company Eric Little Photography, over the past several months. Myself and my team have filmed many commercials for, and testimonials for regional hospitals, created training videos for food companies, filmed a new blood sample machine for the Zika virus, filmed with Dell and the Atlanta Braves and local outlet malls with Scott Smith, also filmed in Vegas , Florida, St. Louis and other regional areas. Just this past month I was filming with a good friend of mine, Rich Fiallo, in Alaska, while my team headed by James Dunn and Shannon Johnson were filming in Miami, all in the same week. Truly taking this company coast to coast. So many good things happening, making this 14th year in business really dynamic for growth. I am looking forward to the future and all that it holds. Too busy to blog, but do I have a treasure of videos and photos to share in the next few weeks from all of the past excitement.
Now on to life. I do have to pay my regards to my mom. We too have been saddened by a great loss in my family. My mom had passed this past month, fighting cancer for the past several months. Finding time between all of the shoots, just wasn’t enough time. The past years of my life will never be enough. My lesson, spend time with those you love. Find time, enjoy life. You may enjoy work and all that it brings, but it will never bring back the memories you make with friends and family. My mom was a great lady. We are not all perfect, but she taught me my work ethic. She was working a job at age 77, up until 3 months ago when she could just not function anymore. Sometimes she worked 2 or 3 jobs. She was strong and sometimes hard headed, but she lived how she wanted to live, and she died with the love of her family around her, especially my sister Beverly, whom I owe a great deal. She and my father pushed me to be what I wanted to be. They put that first camera in my hands, they gave me the subscriptions to National Geographic that inspired me, they taught me to work hard at everything I do. I pay homage to them both. Thank you mom and dad, God speed to Heaven above, I love you both, and miss you more than one can bear. I am happy that you are with me everyday. I hold you close.
