This wonderfully crazy, beautiful, busy, breathtaking and challenging but oh-so-rewarding job.
During this busy season, it can sometimes be easy to loose sight and take for granted how much I love what I do.
As we were driving my son, Mason, said to me, "Mom, today is the best day ever." I smiled and asked him, "why?" and he responded to me as if I should have already known this simple answer. He said, "Because the sun is shining, Mom!" <3
Aren't kids just the best?!
What he said reminded me that I (all of us) need to stop, live in the moment and just be thankful for the marvelous things going on around us, right here, right now.
I am always in awe of where photography takes me, the different people I meet and the variety of lifestyles I am invited to be a part of and document.
One day I am photographing an extraordinary traditional Catholic wedding ceremony and the next I am documenting the lifestyle of harvest season on a farm.
I have been trusted to photograph women in their most vulnerable moments and show them how beautiful they truly are.
I have been honored to witness private times of pure joy and also, times of complete sadness.
My clients have invited me into their homes, delivery rooms and wedding chapels.
For all of these reasons and more, I am so thrilled and honored to be doing what I am doing. I want to thank you all for the love and support you've shown me through the years. I am forever grateful to each and every one of you.
To give back some love I am now offering 10% off all gift certificates purchased now through Small Business Saturday (Nov. 26th). These can be used for yourself or given as a gift.
Now, back to work I go. :-P
