What. a. year!!! 2017 has been such a year of growth for me in my business. I shot so many amazing people for so many different reasons in the past year! From engagement sessions in from the suburbs and Downtown Chicago at Olive Park, Lincoln Park Zoo, Navy Pier, the Wrigley building, session, and more to senior sessions at the University of Iowa, families, and amazing bloggers like my friend Nicole (Bolt Blogs)!! Not only did I have the opportunity to shoot my own clients, but I went to my first workshop put together by Michelle Cox and got to 2nd shoot for some great photographer friends in the area at venues like Villa Olivia and The Chevvy Chase! And lastly, I got to meet and create beautiful things with many amazing vendors in the Chicago area, most of which became good friends of mine! I had the opportunity to shoot at The Greenhouse Loft, The Chez, and The Lofts of Elements Preserved. Not only did I get to create and capture so many amazing things, couples, seniors, and more… I also was featured in many blogs like the Southern Bride!
Putting this blog together was so. much. fun!! I got to look back at all of these amazing people and sessions. I had so many great clients this year and amazing experiences! I feel so lucky and oh so so happy!! All of these sessions and shoots were great experiences, fun and awesome learning opportunities. It’s so crazy to look and see how much I’ve grown as a photographer within the last 12 months!! And it’s even more crazy so see how much more I’ll grow in the next 12 months from now! If you’re a photographer, you should deff do this! You’ll be able to see what you can what you can still improve on, what you did well, and how much you’ve grown in that year!
So cheers to you 2017! You were great! You had so many photo opportunities and experiences! To all my clients, thank you for allowing me to do what I love!! I couldn’t appreciate and love you all more!! It’s been an honor being a part of these special times in your lives!! Enjoy the recap!!!
