Happy New Year! Welcome to 2015! How's your hovercraft and electric rotating closet working for ya?
So, my friends, today marks the three year anniversary of Stories Framed Photography. THREE YEARS! I'm like a toddler, waddling around the place. It's been a real whirlwind - and each year gets better and better. This past year, in particular, has been a fantastic one. I had the privilege of meeting so many new people, making new friends and photographing their stories. There were families, children of all ages, high school seniors, dogs, doctors and a smattering of business professionals.
One of my favorite things about meeting all these people - all of YOU - is learning your stories. I met teachers with decades of experience, I got to know college graduates preparing to start their careers. I talked to parents who worried that their kids wouldn't behave for their family pictures and I hugged grandparents who were overjoyed to have their family all together. I photographed authors and twins, musicians, athletes and even a girl who spent time with the Israeli Army. I met people who love their families and are passionate about their careers.
And then, the cherry on top - I was able to present them with their beautiful portraits and make them SO HAPPY. Even those people who were a little less comfortable were ultimately delighted with their portraits. Those parents who were so worried found relief in a gorgeous portrait of their children. The shy kids opened up and the doubters turned into believers -- in themselves!
That is why I do what I do. Hands down, this is the best job I've ever had. Ha! This "job" of mine is no ordinary j-o-b. It is so much more.
However, when you get right down to it, I would have nothing to do, no one to photograph and no stories to hear if it weren't for YOU. So I owe you all a GIANT THANK YOU for trusting me with your portraits and welcoming me into your lives.
I can't wait for the coming year and all the stories I will hear and share.
Here is a tiny glimpse of how beautiful 2014 turned out to be.... Will you be a part of the Story of 2015? Let's begin with the very first chapter - contact me today and let's get started with your family portraits.
