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!
