2014 Year in Review | Charlotte Family Photographer

Charlotte Photographer | 2104 Review

What a year!  2014 far exceeded any of my expectations.  As most of you know, this is a second career for me.  I have spent a lot of time this year reflecting on how I ended up as a photographer.  It is so far from what I ever imagined myself doing but it is far more fulfilling and rewarding than I ever imagined a career could be.  I’ve also never worked harder than I do now.  Taking pictures is only a small percentage of how I actually spend my time.  It has all been worth it.

I love getting to meet new clients and hear their stories.  I don’t mean this to sound cliche but I really consider it such a privilege to capture life’s milestones for them.  I’ve had clients cry when they see their family photos or newborn pictures.  If I was ever looking for reassurance that I’m making a difference in what I am doing, tears of joy are more than sufficient.  I especially love when clients bring me back for more sessions.  Watching families and children grow is a lot of fun.  Some clients have even become friends, an added bonus I didn’t even consider when I launched my business.

I enjoy the balance that having my own business gives me.  I don’t have to worry about missing anything in girls’ lives because for the most part, I control my schedule.  I will say that in some ways I have paid for that in late night editing sessions!  A fair trade for sure.

I couldn’t fit a third of my 2014 sessions on this collage!  Putting this together brought back so many great memories from 2014.

2015 is going to be exciting, both personally and professionally!  I can’t wait to share what is in store for next year.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you thank you for an amazing 2014!

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by! First and foremost I am a wife to a very supportive husband and together we have two beautiful little girls. I have always loved photography but it wasn’t until my husband and I relocated to Charlotte in 2008 that it became more than just a hobby.
