Happy New Year!
From my place to yours, I'm wishing you all a very Happy New Year! Thank you to all who chose me as your photographer this year. I have loved capturing your memories for each and every one of you. I also want to thank my friends and family who continue to support me as I pursue this passion.
As I look to the new year, I have set some goals for myself. I hope by writing them down here, I'll stay more accountable too.
#1: I'd like to attend at least two photography workshops. I am always trying to make my work better and I know there is always more to learn.
#2: I'd like to meet and reach out to other local photographers. We are a great resource for each other, and as one said the other day, there is plenty of work to go around. We don't need to be competitive. Besides it would be nice to visit with other people who are "crazy" about taking pictures too. And it would be nice to collaborate on some projects, which leads me to goal #3.
#3: I also want to continue a little project throughout the year that I heard about last fall. It's called Help-Portrait and is a movement, started by professional photographer, Jeremy Cowart, where photographers come together across the world to use their photographic skills to give back to their local communities. It's about GIVING portraits, not just TAKING them. I was fortunate to be able to share with some local families this year, but I hope by joining with other photographers next year, we can reach out to even more people and share with them beautiful portraiture. If you know of any individual, family or organization who would benefit, please contact me.
Again, thank you so much for letting me capture your lifestyle and a little bit about you and your family. I look forward to a wonderful new year!!
