A recap of 2009

Wow, finally playing catch up with my blogging. I finally have a minute to breathe! What a crazy year last year was for me. An AMAZING year! Thank you to all of my clients, family and friends who have supported me through the growth of my business... I am proud to say I actually made a profit last year. I actually made more than I spent on education and camera equipment and office equipment... WOW... there is so much more to running a business then I really thought about before jumping in. And these last 3 years have been a learning experience FOR SURE! I am so glad I have been surrounded by an amazing group of photographers who have been shining the spotlight down the roads that I should take. I have also had wonderful clients that inspire me and challenge me to be a better photographer.

I finally feel like I am finding "my style"... I'm not just photographing everything because I don't know what I like... not just photographing how I think the client will want me to photograph... but photographing from my passion, from my heart, with my style at work.

Corporate America really pushes so hard on people to fit into certain molds and I really feel like last year I realized... I don't have to be corporate America. I get to be ME! Run my company how I want to, how it will best serve my clients. What a freeing realization. As some of you may remember I had fun with my hair. Put a little pink in there... just because I felt like I could.... well, it was fun... and I may do it again, but just doing it because I could was pretty cool! (My hubby doesn't like it much, so maybe I'll give him a little break from it ;) Anyway, my point is, I feel like I've always been me, but now I am a more improved version of myself!

To continue in my trend of onward and upward, I recently signed on to lease studio space and will be sharing with 4 other very talented and wonderful women in photography! I am so excited about this venture! I will be having an open house soon, so keep your eyes out for details. I've photographed a few sessions in there so far and can't wait to see how my photography changes and evolves with this new opportunity!

So, you've probably stopped reading by this point... with all my yada yada yada... but if I still have your attention... thanks again. Even if I have never photographed you, thank you. Thank you for taking the time to read my posts, for checking in to see what I am up to. I hope to continue providing heartwarming, fun, enjoyable posts that keep you coming back to get away from your crazy day even if just for a minute to take in someone else's smiles and hear their stories.

Here is to 2010! May it be even more wonderful than 2009... And may I help even more people preserve their memories for the rest of their tomorrows!
