Fresh Faced 2016

January 5, 2016

Introducing… my brand new website!!

With the new year, I’m excited to be making some changes around here.  For the past several months I have been dreaming a lot about where I have been, where I am now and where I want to be going.  I’ve been browsing through the thousands of photographs I’ve taken in the past four or so years, and it’s drummed up both feelings of gratefulness and excitement – gratefulness for all of the sweet couples I’ve had the honor of working with, and excitement to see my growth as both a photographer and a person.  If you were to ask me four years ago what my life would be like now, I wouldn’t have believed you.  Not only have I had the honor of photographing over a hundred weddings and dozens of families (that in itself being a dream come true), I’ve also welcomed two of my own babies into our little family.  It’s been a whirlwind to say the least, but the past four years have been better than I could have ever imagined.

I go into this next year and the future with greater clarity than I’ve ever had before.  I have found the thing that makes my heart happy and allows me to support my family at the same time.  But ever the entrepreneur, I’m always looking ahead to the “what’s next”.  I’ve thought long and hard about where I see myself in the next year, 5 years and even 10 years.  And if I’ve learned anything over the past four years it’s this: anything is possible.

I am incredibly grateful to Ann of Grit & Wit for her visual creativity in making my dreams come alive.  It all starts with a new logo and a website, but this refresh runs much deeper.  I am moving into the new year with new focus and new inspiration, ready to make a leap forward.

So with that, welcome 2016!  I can’t wait to see what lies ahead!
