This past year has given me so much to reflect on: both personally, as well as professionally.
I feel that I have grown so much as both an artist and a photographer, that I can take the step towards doing what I love full time.
This also means revisiting my pricing structure and packages, to better suit my clients. It's time that I truly value the art that I create.
I don't think people realize what a photographer goes through (or the costs involved) to create these galleries of artful images. From equipment costs to classes, and the time spent away from my family every night editing images... it can all add up real quick!
I have fallen in love with Maternity and Newborn photography, and wish to 'specialize' in these types of sessions. I want to offer my clients timeless, one of a kind images that portray these oh so fleeting moments in time. From the growing belly nurturing a life, to those tiny feet, fingernails and wisps of hair. What a glorious miracle life is.
I am also starting a new project (amongst many other photographers/moms out there) to focus on my own growing babies, to better preserve the memories of our simple everyday life. I'm calling it "Portraits of the Imperfect" a journey through motherhood. I haven't decided whether or not this will be a daily or weekly challenge, but either way, keep an eye out on my blog for the beginning of this journey! I encourage you to join me as well- regardless of if you have a DSLR or just an iPhone, to get in pictures with your kids just doing everyday things.
Well, that's it for tonight! To all my clients over the past few years who have helped me grow, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I will leave you with a collage of some of the newborns I had the pleasure of meeting in 2015.
