The holiday season is upon us!
The last couple of months have been busy and eventful – both personally and professionally. I’m working on getting blogging to happen more often and more from the heart. ‘Talking’ about what I’m doing (and feeling) in a public forum does not come naturally to me. However, I see the creation of photographs that tell a story, a snap in time, a piece of your life to be pretty darn personal; so, I want you to know more about me too. I love the personal connections I’m making and growing with my clients, a nd many have become amazing friends too!
I also now have an accountability partner (we are both photographers) and my promise to Lisa this week was to do a blog post. I love the extra push this gives me to keep stretching outside my comfort zone. It allows me to keep growing and expanding.
What have I been up to in November? Three family birthdays and celebrations, Thanksgiving, helping a friend move, having surgery and recovery, dinners and bon fires with friends and taking lots and lots and lots photographs at my mini-holiday pet photography sessions!! Special thank you to East Orlando Animal Hospital for selecting me as their client photographer this year.
I’ve been having a great time doing these mini-holiday-pet photography shoots. Pet photography is a big piece of my photography business, though not the only genre I shoot, and I am loving it! I cannot say this enough ~ I Love My Life!!
I love getting snuggles and kisses and funny photos! I love the response of puppy parents (a few kitty parents), when they are amazed at my final prints: “how do you get the dogs to pose like that?”, “Awe, look at that face!”, “Oh my, I love them all, you make deciding which ones to purchase so hard!”.
I am rocking my goal of creating these lasting memories when I capture a photograph. To evoke those feelings of love, laughter, silliness, seriousness, remembering. Our animals can’t stay with us forever and our kids grown up and our parents age, but these photographs capture a moment in time to cherish. At this time of year, I get to combine my love of Christmas and my love of animals with photography = Magic!
I wish you all the magic of the holiday season. Of remembering special memories from childhood and previous years and the wish that you continue to create memories every day!
