I had started this business back in Florida prior to our move here to North Carolina. Some time before our move and then for almost a year after we arrived here, I took some time off from photographing others. I took the time off here in North Carolina to help with work and to work with the kids on their adjustment. Plus, I was in a new city and if I was going to do this again I needed to do it right and honestly starting over is a lot of work. But I decided that I was going to do it, just days over 2 years ago and wow! Here we are. This business has grown and changed so much in that two year span I can't even believe it myself. I am truly so fortunate and feel like pinching myself often. Whatever path this business continues to take, I will always been extremely thankful to those that started with me in the early stages of my business and who have encouraged me along the way.
It is beyond flattering to have past (and I mean at the very start) clients request your return to capture their growing family. To know that people have watched you grow through the years and support you- it jut truly touching. My trip to Florida in February resulted from this situation of a past client wanting me to do new pictures with her family, sending out feelers with other clients and people in the area and it ended up with a fabulous trip to Florida between two cities and four families. The new result is this will become an annual thing that I will do and something that I am even looking at and considering adding other states to (Georgia may be added next round : ) ). Seriously, how awesome is that?! The love and support will always astound me. I just love getting to do this and being able to give them something that they will treasure and keep forever. Thank you for letting me do this!
Enjoy some of the pictures from my amazing trip to Florida (Melbourne and Gainesville) and my amazing and truly loyal clients and most importantly, friends.
