As I wade through my bookkeeping spreadsheets, I can’t help but find myself thinking back to 2010, when I first registered my photography business – a semester into my M.Sc.. I was skeptical that photography could ever be a feasible career choice. At the time, registering my business was only for tax purposes. By December of 2011, I was anxiously finishing up my Masters – I had tons of clients and couldn’t wait to run my business full time! This past December marked five years since I became a full time photographer.
With each and every booking, and each and every new and returning client, I find myself honoured and humbled that this community has embraced me so wholeheartedly. I have made countless friends, and my network has become incredibly expansive. I have photographed couples, engagements, marriages, maternity photos, newborn photos, and growing families – and have been the go-to photographer for so many families over the past 8 years that I have witnessed their children grow from newborns to pre-teens! And I’m not even 30 years old! I suppose that’s what happens when you start a business in your early 20’s.
I am thankful for the endless opportunities to learn and grow.
I am thankful that my passion has indeed become my career.
I am thankful.
Lots of love,
