Photography had started as a hobby for me and after ten years as a hobby, this year turned out to be a turning point for me. I always wanted to have a photography business, but never trusted myself or my work to actually turn it into a reality. This year, I started photographing more at the horse shows and around the barn and next thing I know - BOOM! Everyone wanted pictures. I completely overhauled my equipment and gear, bought studio lights for corporate shots I was doing, created a website, had business cards drawn up, and have been reading more on business laws and taxes than I ever wanted to. I have never done that much with portraiture and everything you see was from reading and experimenting with different lighting, techniques, settings, and it's definitely been an experience! I've learned so much and am so thankful for my first clients that trusted me to take their photos and capture these special moments.
I'm still working on getting the studio done and this website is still in the making as it's a complete revamp from what I was using earlier this year. I'm eventually going to be adding the ability to purchase through the website and be able to order prints, cards, gifts, etc.
Thank you everyone for your support in making my dream come true!
