2017: a year in portraits and gratitude

THANK YOU.

If it weren't for YOU I would have nothing. Stories Framed Photography would be a pile of photos of my dog and what I ate for lunch.

 She is cute, though, isn't she?

Whether you are a reader of my blog, a friend, client, family member or fellow business owner, THANK YOU. Whoever you are, you have made an impact on me personally and professionally and for that I am truly, truly grateful.

 I loved photographing this beautiful pair for Mother's Day.

This past year has been an unforgettable one.

I met some fascinating people and had the pleasure of working with some dynamic individuals. They each reinforced my belief that everyone has a story.

 This is Christopher, class of 2018. What a cool, interesting kid. I'll share his story later this spring.

I moved into a new studio space.

My business grew leaps and bounds. I grew. I learned so much. 

 This heart-stopping portrait of Dominic wouldn't have been a possibility without my studio.

And here we are, at the last few days of the year, and I am just bursting with joy and pride and excitement. 2017 was unforgettable... and I have you to thank for it.

WATCH THIS...

Thank you for making 2017 so unforgettable. As you look back at your year, reminiscing over your album, glancing at your family's portrait hanging on the wall, know that you were part of making MY year so great. I hope that I helped make your year just as memorable.

It was an honor to work with you to capture your story... your celebrations, your growth, your milestone moments. 

 Unique stories can be revealed in any setting, even in the middle of a river.

I have so many ideas, plans and secret schemes to make 2018 even bigger and better than ever. Between my Grand Opening in January to springtime with seniors to fall with families... this is going to be a fantastic, fun and energizing year. 

Happy New Year... and again, THANK YOU.
