In the 5 years since I started my dream of owning my own photography business, my life has changed in so many positive ways. I got married, had 2 sons, and my dream became a very successful reality. With all of these changes I have had to make many business changes along the way – most importantly – find the perfect balance between family, friends, and my business. In the beginning I took on anything and everything that I could, but as I grew it became impossible to say yes to every client, all the time. Last year I changed the way I ran things. I have set days that I shoot, set days to edit, and I take a limited number of weddings per year (25-30) and it has worked so well for me. I also added staff photographers to my team to help accommodate more clients and now they are fully booked for this wedding season as well! This year I am drastically reducing the number of Baby, Maternity, & Family portrait sessions I will be shooting – simply because I can not do them all and I have to make the time for myself and my family. I want to focus on my true passion, Weddings and High School Seniors Portrait Photography. But don’t fret, I will be holding mini session dates at least 2 times a year to accommodate as many of my current family clients as possible. And Heather (my lead staff photographer) will be doing some portrait sessions when things slow down as well. SO – if you want family pictures keep a lookout for announcements on mini session dates (the next one is April 14th). I have been blessed beyond measure and am so thankful for all of my past, current, and future clients! I appreciate each and every one of you!
