Happy Birthday!

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

This week I got a little notification in my email box from the site manager of my website: "Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com!"  One year ago I decided that I needed something more in my life, that I needed to create and find beauty and reveal the stories that others had to share.  I realized that I needed to pick up my camera and actually do something with it.  And oh, I am so happy that I did!

Last spring I had no idea where my new path would lead me.  I was giving away free sessions left and right, rushing home to edit the photos, to work magic with my mouse and reveal the internal stories that only I could capture with my camera.  Immediately, I was hooked.

All year, I've looked at the world in a before-and-after perspective.  There are so many free-time things where I've commented, "Oh, I haven't done that since last March."  Watch TV? Nope, over and done with.  I have given all of my time and all of my heart to this business over the past year, and I couldn't be happier to see where I've been able to take it.   This entire year has been a learning process for me, and I have loved every single minute of it!  I can't wait to see where I'll be a year from now, and where I'll be able to take my business over the course of the next year.

One year ago this weekend, I was giving away a free session to two adorable little girls in a park.  This weekend, only one year later, I've photographed a bar mitzvah and am meeting this afternoon about an upcoming wedding I'm shooting next month.  Talk about a difference!

THANK YOU to every single person who has supported me and my business.  Thank you to every client who has booked a session.   Thank you for every click on my website, for every referral, for every rave review and glowing testimonial.  Thank you for hanging my artwork in your homes, for sharing it with family and friends, and for allowing me to capture those fleeting memories for your family.  Thanks for asking me how it was going, and for sharing in my (sometimes literally jumping-up-and-down!) excitement.
