Photography is one of the greatest blessings in my life right now. God knew I needed a new focus, a purpose and something to bring meaning into my life. I am thoroughly enjoying this new challenge and thank him for it. 🙂
I kind of feel like it happened so suddenly but I was looking back at some old blog posts (like 4 years ago) and even back then I was talking about learning manual, learning techniques and had a desire to improve my photo skills. I was only shooting on a point and shoot but I realize now I learned more than I remember on that point and shoot.
I put my camera down for almost a year before I got my first DSLR so I felt like I was picking it up again for the first time. When that really isn’t the case.
Those who know me and know me well, know my memory is terrible! Somehow I kind of forgot about all those years with that trusty point and shoot. The only thing that stuck in my memory was the year that I barely touched my camera.
Last year was amazing!! And I sincerely thank all the people that made it possible for me to discover and explore my love of photographing people. I thank all the people who took a chance on me, told their friends about me and followed along on my journey.
I’m very excited about 2012! And I’m kicking it up a notch! I’m doing a lot of rethinking on the business side of things. I want to focus on the parts of photography that really make me happy. The subjects that I really look forward to photographing.
As time allows I’ll even do a few family sessions.
I also will be focusing on the final products of my sessions. The final product also makes me very happy 🙂 I’ll be encouraging my clients to think about what they hope to gain from the session. I’ll be offering framed prints, standouts and albums. The results from your session will be instant! I’ll be offering products that go straight up on the wall. Stay tuned for more details!
