October 30, 2009 Thank You

A few years ago, I found myself home with a newborn and a two year old and needed a hobby. Stat. So I started exploring my love of photography. After months of photographing friends and enjoying workshops, I thought I would start a small business – one weekend a month at most – to have a creative outlet.

Today I found out for the third year in a row we have received Reader’s Choice Awards in the Hamilton Spectator for Best Photographer and Best Photography Studio.

Wait – wasn’t I just buying my first digital SLR with a crying baby in my arms and a toddler pulling on my leg? Wasn’t I just trying to figure out how to use this new gadget?

I am in awe – full of gratitude. All along the way I have had people supporting and cheering me on and I could not be more thankful. My “get-me-away-from-these-kids-for-at-least-an-hour” crazed beginnings has taken me on travels all over the globe, brought me countless new friends, and allowed me into the lives of so many amazing people.

Thank you.

As 2009 starts to wind down – I’m starting to dream and plan for 2010 and I can’t wait! I get a lot of emails from people just starting out in the business – or who want to start out – asking me questions and advice. Every time I read one of these I am reminded to dream bigger than you can imagine – and go for it!

Celebrating life and love,
