2018 wow you were a doozy (people still say that right?)
I started last year off in California still working in the sports industry and completely upset with where I was and what I was doing. In March I decided to quit everything and pursue wedding photography full time. To be honest, I probably should have prepared a bit more but I’m making it work! Not one ounce of me regrets moving from California and not one ounce regrets leaving my job there. Though I miss my friends there and the opportunities I obviously was meant to be where I am now.
Y’all this first year as an entrepreneur full time has been insane! I moved to Nashville, restructured my business, branding and client services. I went through love and love loss, I adopted a grumpy old dog whom I love and I freaking got my work published in some magazines! Not only that but I became more confident in what I am pursing/doing.
Through the weddings I had last year I got to be a part of so many special days and contribute my work of art to them. I got to watch people commit to one another through good times and bad. I got to sit with my clients and truly get to know them. I got to dance on so many dance floors and have wedding guests question who invited me.
But because of y’all I got through it. Yes, seriously, through every like, share, referral and comment I was able to live doing what I love. My marketing budget isn’t huge so I really depend heavily on people, on you to get my business to stay alive. So thank you, all of you, for helping pursue this path.
Now, before I leave you with some of my favorite images from 2018 I wanted to share my 2019 resolutions for my business:
– Give an even better client experience
– Focus on my niche of adventure and push for my dream clients
– Make more women and men feel badass
– Give back to the community through photography
– Get to the point where I can appoint an accountant
Wish me luck!
