Wow, guys! I am just blown away as I set back and take a look at everything that took place during 2017 for me both professionally and personally! This was the first year that I would consider that I did photography “full time”. Throughout the year I photographed over 117 sessions including weddings & engagement sessions, senior portraits, boudoir, family portraits, maternity portraits, headshots, and event photography! Most of you know that I’m also a stay-at-home mom to our 2 year old daughter, April, so spending nearly a third of the year doing photo shoots is a huge feat for me! I have to give a giant shout out first and foremost to my amazing hubby who took over April-duty at home most of the time. Second, to our fantastic moms who also lent a huge hand. Third, to the many many babysitters who (although they were getting paid) made themselves available and were just awesome with Miss April! And finally to all my wonderful clients!! I truly couldn’t have done any of this without you all believing in me, loving my work, and hiring me to be a part of your lives. Your support of Life on Purpose Photography allows me to stay at home with my daughter and quite literally puts food on our table!
Some of my favorite things from 2017 include: seeing many of my friends and long-time clients get pregnant and have adorable little babies and seeing other little ones grow older and older, seeing my boudoir business grow and empowering so many women to feel comfortable in their own skin, starting my first Senior Model Rep Team, working with the New Day Foundation to benefit families suffering from a cancer diagnosis, being asked to shoot a wedding all the way in Iceland, and most importantly: meeting so many new people and capturing the moments they live for!
Life on Purpose Photography has lots of exciting things happening in 2018 including the launch of customized photo album add-ons, personalized mobile apps, highlight videos, and digital contract signing! I am so excited to see what 2018 has in store for me and for all of my stellar fans out there! In the meantime, here’s my favorite photo from EVERY session I photographed in 2017!
