While a lot of 2017 was largely occupied by buying a house and making it a home, I was still SUPER busy as a photographer. With 22 regular shoots, 3 birthday parties, and a wedding this year, my plate was pretty full considering I have a full time job doing something completely different. Every year, as my workload exceeds the year before, I am more and more grateful and humbled that even strangers come to me to for photoshoots now. Who would have ever thought? Certainly not me. I never thought I’d have the confidence to call myself an actual photographer, but I do now and it’s only because friends and family and even strangers continue to have faith in me and my work. Busy season might wipe me out, but I can’t explain the joy it brings me to look back at a years worth of shoots – at all the memories I’ve captured for people – at the Christmas cards clients sent me with my pictures on them; it’s a blessing I never really imagined for my life.
Thank you to all of my clients, new and old, for trusting me with your memories. I hope to shoot you all again in 2018!
