2017, where did you go? Seriously...I guess the saying time flies when you are having fun is true. This year was an amazing year for my business, my growth and personal development. One of my goals for 2017 was to develop myself. I connected with the incredible Eva Cherneff Photography, based on Vancouver Island, and she mentored me for a few months until I felt ready to move forward with what I had learned from her. Another goal of mine was to work as a second shooter for, at least one, wedding photographer in The Netherlands. I connected with the incomparable Bertina Bartlett, owner of BeMind Fotografie and Silver Linings Studio, and worked on one wedding with her and was hooked! I fell in love with wedding photography. The romance. The details. The emotion. All. Of. It. I also connected with the incredibly talented Amanda Drost of Amanda Drost Photography and she invited me to second shoot two weddings this season. Not only did I build a friendship with these three ladies but I learned so much from them and am so inspired by their passion, drive and determination. I cannot thank them enough for their support, encouragement and teaching me this past year.
Watching my daughter grow, oh hey two, was an eye opener for me. I wanted to capture every detail. Her little dimple when she smiles. That little gap between her top baby teeth, her ten tiny fingers and toes. I wanted to do the same for my clients. Details. Connection. Emotion. I, myself, want to be able to look back at these images and return to that moment and feel my clients want the same. Time. Flies.
Highlights this year were my clients. Their stories and capturing some of the most important moments of their lives. I feel so grateful to do what I do. I cannot thank you enough for choosing me to capture such important and beautiful moments in your lives. Thank you for sharing your story with me and allowing me to share it through images and words. To all of my followers, friends and family - thank you for your constant support! Cheers to an amazing 2018!
