At my last wedding of the year, a guest pulled me aside and asked "you know you have the happiest job in the world, don't you?" I didn't think much of it in the moment, but as I wrapped up my final emails of the year, opened holiday cards from past clients throughout the season, and reviewed the year in photos, I have to agree. I think I just might have the happiest job in the world.
This year was by leagues, my busiest season yet. I photographed almost double the amount of weddings I did last year, my first birth, four weddings with dogs as flower girls (score!), a three day long women's fashion shoot, lots of family sessions with returning clients, and my first elopement. My husband and I bought our first house at the peak of my season -YIKES- and still survived. I started regularly working with Hilary Campbell, an honor that I'm thrilled to continue even more consistently in 2018.
2018 is panning out to look equally as bright with multiple months already booked to capacity, a trip to NOLA to attend The Family Narrative, and my first time being published in print already scheduled! I feel so fortunate to have such a direct line of vision into pure beauty and joy through my photography business, when I know most jobs leave people feel drained and uninspired. Thank you to all for giving me the happiest job in the world, and a very happy New Year to you! 2018- I'm ready for you.
