Usually, this time of year, I am counting the number of sessions, reliving the reviews, looking at my calendar for the next year.
This year, it all feels so different.
I have yet to reflect on how many session I’ve done. I am grateful for the reviews as they come in but haven’t reread them. My calendar is very limited in its spots for next year.
Instead, this year 👉🏼
💕I am counting my blessings, holding close and tight the experiences, the exchanges, the connections, the sheer gratitude of getting to be in space with so many sensational souls in this way.
💫I photographed souls from engagements to families after divorces, sessions in the sunshine and weddings in the pouring rain, expanded families and entrepreneurs adorned in thousands of dollars.
🤝My relationship with my camera, of which has served as a tool, my shield in a way. We transitioned. From that of using the tool to be a storyteller for all others lives to that of my own. Embracing moving from behind to in front of the camera. One of THE hardest transitions.
To create space in something that I have always known, quite frankly defined myself as. To fall in love with my camera, the lens in which I view the world, my truth, in a whole new way has been invigorating. I feel alive in a whole new way.
🌱The power of connection.
🍃The power of telling a story.
🌳The power of photography being a means for education, for communication.
🌿The power of being witness to lives greatest and hardest moments and finding the connection and need for it all.
I write this with tears in my eyes as the love for, the gratitude for, the expansiveness that this tool of a camera has brought into my life.
That of love.
Life, quite literally.
Growth, losses, changes, challenges and triumphs.
To all of you, present, past and future, thank you.Thank you.
I am infinitely grateful.
As we move into 2023, I will still be taking on photography clients, but they are very limited each month so please reach out so I can save your date. For wedding clients, I have just two spots left!
