First I need to sing praises over 2017! I had amazing wedding clients, as always. The beauty of my job is that I have the sweetest clients... And those sweet clients send their awesome friends my way. So I have a never ending stream of good people to take photos of. It is a landslide of love and I am lucky to be on the receiving end of it!
I was also lead to start taking on newborn sessions again. I truly LOVE newborn photography. A lot of times, the babies belong to a former bride of mine. So I get to see the next amazing chapter in my client's lives. It makes my heart so happy!
Outside of photography, my husband and I ran our first 1/2 Marathon in October 2017! It was not easy. But anything worth doing is usually a challenge. I hope to do another one in 2018 and beat my 2 hr 6 min time.
Now on to 2018!
I was voted 'Best Photographer' for the Evansville Living Magazine "Best of Evansville 2018".
Thank you to everyone that voted for me. I couldn't believe my ears when Evansville Living called me with the news! Thank you GOD for leading me to a career that makes my heart sing. Thank you to my husband for pestering me to buy my first camera and for believing in me. Thank you to my kids for making me even more sentimental, which in turn, makes me a better photographer.
I also recently found out that the Posey Co. Visitors Guide is using some of my images in their first publication. Which will be distributed to thousands of readers.
Grateful is an understatement!
In 2018, I will continue to specialize in weddings. Weddings are WHY I got into photography. I LOVE all things weddings. The love, sweet moments and laughter. How is this my job?!
Also this year, I will be taking on more newborn sessions. I can't help myself, I love me some babies.
In family news, my daughter, Daphne, just turned 5 years old. My son, Nash, will be 3 in February. These two monkeys keep my husband and I laughing everyday. Kids are so weird in the most delightful way! Daphne is as girly as can be. Nash loves dinosaurs and monster trucks. They have a love hate relationship. But mostly love!
Penelope, our pug, passed away 3 years ago. Daphne still talks about missing Penny. Heartbreaking! Belle, our black pug, is still here! She isn't able to see or hear very well. But her snoring is still as loud as ever. She turned 13 in October 2017.
If I could freeze time and just live my current life forever I would be ok with that. Everything is sweet in the York house. But I know these kids will just get bigger, and bring us more joy with every stage.
Same with my career, I am excited to see what transformations happen! All I can do is keep working hard and treating people like family. It is what has worked for me so far.
Thank you God for letting us feel your presence everyday.
