Every “New Year” brings up so many feelings as we all reminisce on the year’s past, and how those challenges and successes we faced shaped our new hopes and dreams into what they become for the next year. I once read that “A dream is just a dream, but a goal is a dream with a plan,” and that has resonated with me both in my personal and professional life now that 2019 has arrived. I am a dreamer, and I have been my entire life. Sometimes that is both my best and worst quality, but this year I have decided to lay down a plan for those dreams. Professionally, one of my favorite things about photography is the variety of people I get to meet each year, and the small relationships I build with them in the short amount of time we spend together. I have been blessed to shoot weddings, births, engagements, high school graduations, and so many more life changing moments in people’s lives. At the beginning of last year, my goal was to limit the amount of weddings I took, but be more intentional on how I shot those few weddings. This year, my goal is to shoot more portrait sessions and pour my creativity into each individual session. That creativity may be stying a couples formal wear and choosing a “dreamy” location to go with it, getting “THE shot” that my Senior can’t stop looking at because of the way it makes her feel, or capturing the growing love of a couple after celebrating their anniversary. The list is endless, but in honor of a “New Year” with “New Goals” I want to give you guys something to start off your New Year. I am offering $75 OFF any portrait session booked by February 15th. A “portrait session” can be anything from a family session, couples session, engagement session, maternity session, senior session, anniversary session, and lifestyle newborn sessions. Check out some of my favorite portraits below! Here’s to a great year.
