A Little Milestone

Yesterday I went to pick up two large prints I ordered locally from a recent photo shoot and when the cashier brought the photo envelope up to the counter she stated,

"Oh, these pictures are under copyright so I need proof that you have permission to print them."

To which I got to reply, "I'm the photographer. They're my pictures. (Insert BIG CHEESY GRIN)"

I have never had any photo shop tell me that before so it felt like a small "I have arrived" moment. And while I recognize I have not indeed arrived, it is a fun milestone to celebrate that I have grown in my photography!
