Wow. Absolutely unreal! 2017 is off to an amazing start.  We are only three weeks into this year, and I have nearly DOUBLE the bookings for 2017 that I had at this time last year for 2016!  2017 is going to be BIG BIG BIG!

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 being invited into so many lives.
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,
