At the beginning of this year, I knew I had no real idea about where I wanted my business and brand to go, only that I knew I was going to work my butt off to figure it out. The first few months of the year, I dove deep into online learning and became a student at the Unraveled Academy. I took a 3 week course that really allowed me to pull back the layers of who I thought I wanted to be as an artist/photographer, and got down the the WHY. Feeling more confident in why I wanted to dedicate my life to documenting people, allowed me to have a more clear and focused vision of the WHO and WHAT. Over the summer I had my first opportunities to document couples, and the WHO became so clear! I was lucky to photograph 4 very different weddings in 2018 and those opportunities were the start of something big inside me. This realization lead me to making one of the more scary and exhilarating choices of the year, attending my first couples photography retreat. 4 days in one of my favourite places in the world, lead by 3 amazing photographers. I left that week feeling so much fire in my belly, I didn't know what to do about it. I do know where I want that fire to take me and I can't wait to see what 2019 hold.
In 2018, I made so many amazing connections with fellow photographers, local vendors, and of course the clients who mean so very much to me.
To all the families, couples, artists and friends who have supported me over this first year of my business, I am so very thankful!
