What a year this was. We probably all need some time to reflect on it and that is what I have been doing as I end my wedding and portrait season this week. Hence, my End of Year Review! This year, 2016, there was disruption, excitement of all kinds, plus many wonderful things, too. In my business – my wedding clients were the best ever, all of you so interesting and creative how you planned the perfect wedding celebrations to share your love with family and friends. I am grateful for my returning clients who’ve come back every year or so to record life’s milestones. Thank you. I have enjoyed every minute with you all! This year stretched me and challenged me to see familiar things in new ways. There is always something new to learn and this year came with opportunities to grow. I decided early in 2016 to have a word for the year. It was – ‘Effortlessness’. I did manage to find moments personally and in my work that became effortless. Quite amazing, actually. I will find a new word for 2017 that will inspire and push me forward again. I decided to limit this End of Year Review to 8 photos. It was definitely a challenge. […]
Maternity Photography I love it when my wedding clients call and ask about Maternity Photography. I treat these sessions like a regular portrait session, except that I am more inclined to summon up some “fashion designer wanna be skills” to create something special like in this image below. I created this dress on the spot by wrapping my subject in material I keep around to create a dreamy dress for her. Meet Petra, one of my former wedding clients. Petra and husband Derrick are expecting in a couple of weeks! Isn’t Petra a beautiful mother to be? I could not wait to share it with you. Please feel free to leave your comments here, I would love to know what you think, too.
