Everyone keeps saying to blog! It will help my business in so many ways. What you don't blog? Like it's the only way to run a successful business. I have pushed it off for 13 year's people!! I take portraits because I am not great with words. I am sure I will loose your attention in about the first ten seconds of reading this. I hope not because I have some big news. If you can get through my punctuation, awful grammar and run on sentences! Then you must love me lol. So here I go doing my first blog.
After 13 years of truly the most amazing clients in Wichita. From little babies, kids, teens, seniors, engagement, maternity, weddings, events, product shots the list goes on. Words can't say how you all have changed my life. I mean you trust me with your most treasured memories. Some of you are not just clients but have become wonderful friends. You all have helped me provide a life for my family. I have been able to travel, and be apart of things I would have never seen. Has it always been easy heck no. Have I wanted to give up hell yes. Because of you I did not give up. I kept going and trying learn and become better. I wanted to keep giving you more and something different new and fresh.
I started with two little ones out of my home with many sleepless nights and day's. I thought I would fall over or loose my mind from exhaustion. I had so many people tell me I couldn't do it. It was just a hobby or my fantasy job. Because of you I did not listen I kept going. Then I ended up opening a studio on Douglas. This might have been one of the moment's I am most proud of. I did this all on my own no help, no loans no one holding my hand saying you got this. You all supported me again and I ended up having some of my best years in that studio. When I was told my location was being sold and I had to go. You all still supported me. This time in my career was one of the toughest finding a new place, finding my way without having what I knew for so long. Yet you still wanted me to photograph your important moments studio or not. Even if you never booked a session with me. The people who wrote kind comments, shared and liked my images, post, model calls and giveaways. You helped to! If you referred friends to me you helped. I want to thank each and every single one of you. Because of all of you I get to continue what I truly love and feed my family at the same time. Photographs mean the world to me and I am happy to say these images I create will by far out live me.
We have decided to take the leap and we are moving to Utah. Have you heard about us moving before? I am sure you have. Sometimes timing is just not right. We feel the time is right and the universe has lined up for us to go. With that being said am I scared? More scared than you know. I mean I am leaving behind 13 years of building a business, friendships and comfort. This is my 4th child it's my everything. Can I let this hold me back NO I can't. Just like I took the leap 13 years ago to start. I have to have the courage to do it again. What is the saying? "Everything you want is on the other side of fear". Jack Canfield or another one that is hitting me is "Take the leap and build your wings on the way down"
I wanted to try to make this sweet and simple. I hope you still support and follow my journey. I hope you visit me and let me take stunning images for your family with amazing mountains in the background. I hope that when I come back to visit you will book a session with me. (I will try to make it back to see my friends and clients twice a year) If you know anyone in the Salt Lake City area or even close by towns please share my work with those people. Most of all I hope you all know what you mean to me and not just me but my family to.
