At the close of another year, I want to warmly and sincerely thank my many wonderful clients for trusting me to photograph a special time in their lives. I chose this career 33 years ago, and I have to say that I still enjoy my photography as much, if not more, than when I began. How many people can say they love what they do after so many years? I am nowhere near retirement as yet, and I’m looking forward to seeing many more of my past clients and meeting new ones!
I am so looking forward to what 2012 will bring. Some things will be good and some not-so-good. But, I will accept whatever comes!
I haven’t made New Year’s resolutions for many years, because the intentions are always good – but the execution rarely happens. So what I’m doing instead is making a list of what I envision for myself and my business in the coming year. (There’s power in the written word.)
One thing I want to do in my business is to try new things. I will be photographing assignments just for me. It might mean more travel photography or scenic or close-up macro photography. But I have these visions of some beautiful, artistic life studies of people… I’m going to explore that!
Personally, I want to spend more time reading, relaxing and listening to great music. I find that these all refresh my body and soul and that ends up making me more creative in my photography! Amazing how that works!
As I’m sitting here, wrapping up my year, I am feeling many emotions – and the biggest is the excitement for all of the good things to come next year and a feeling of gratitude to all of the people who are a part of my life.
Happy New Year!
