Change. Change is funny, awkward, stressful, scary, and necessary. Without change, there is no growth. Without growth, there is no progress. 2011 is going to bring a lot of change for my life, and I couldn’t be more ecstatic about it!
Between GETTING MARRIED, starting my last year of school, one of my best friend’s getting married, moving, Zach starting Medical School in the Fall, my sister and brother-in-law moving to North Carolina where he will begin Seminary at Duke (SO proud of him!), travels to Virginia and Cambodia (more to come about that!), and just the usual craziness of life, it’s going to be a busy year full of change.
Along with all of this, I really want to focus on how I want to pursue graphic design, and how I want it to work with photography. I love both fields so much, and I can’t wait to see how the two come together. Next Fall, I plan on trying for an internship in design, and that should determine a lot! I have so many ideas and goals that keep me reeling about the future. It excites me and keeps me dreaming big. My hope is that this year will turn a lot of those goals into a reality, and I want to make sure I allow myself the time and energy to make it happen!
Because of all these changes, I will not be taking on any more weddings for 2011. Though it bums me out to turn people away, I’m so excited about the handful of couples I will be working with over the next year, and I want to ensure that they are taken care of and given the best service I can provide! I am so excited to capture this incredible time in their lives, and I feel so blessed to get to work with them! This will not affect any regular sessions (engagement, bridal, family, senior, etc.), so contact me any time!
Needless to say, I’m on the brink of something exciting. Something unknown. Something wonderful. There are things we can plan for, and things we can’t, and we have to be ok with that. The growth I’ve experienced this year alone makes me so enthusiastic about the future of this business, and the future of the art I love! Thanks to all of my 2010 clients… you all have been a dream come true.
Cheers to 2011… it’s going to be EPIC!
