Seriously, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU SO MUCH to my 2014 clients.  You have given me a very successful year, and totally given me a job that I love and am so passionate about.  I never, ever, ever thought I’d have people want me to be their photographer, and I just feel so fortunate that every one of you believe in me to give you the kind of photos you love.

In the fall of 2013, I quit my daytime job as a computer programmer, and had intended only doing photography “part time” in 2014.  I am so blessed in that my business took a different direction, resulting in me being full time and more this whole year.  I even had to take a step back this fall (2014) and did less family sessions because I was trying to find balance…I was overworking, but loving mostly every minute of it!

This year I did a total of 176 sessions, and that is including wedding related stuff!  CRAZY.  SO FORTUNATE.  SO THANKFUL for YOU, my 2014 clients!  It really was a great year!

2015 I hope to find more balance (does that ever really happen? lol), and will be a little more strict on my schedule.  I don’t plan on doing weekend sessions (unless you want to pay additional fee), and I plan on adding families back into my routine, but limited amounts, and ONLY in certain months.  I do not plan on doing any mini sessions, but will continue to do studio themed ones with my wedding business partner (SWP Minis).

ANYWAYS…let’s get to my giveaway.  I want to give something back, so I plan to give a 16×24 CANVAS to TWO WINNERS.  If you are a current client, past client, or a future client of mine (on my books), you can enter this contest.
