Over the weekend, the Facebook page hit 10,000 fans. I pretty much just stared at my phone and blinked a lot… it didn’t compute for a minute, mainly because 7,000 of those fans have happened in the last 9 months. It’s just unreal. You guys are unreal. God’s blessings poured out over me have been unreal and have left me slack-jawed time and time again.
< I’m about to get sappy real quick >
Clients, not one of you comes to mind that doesn’t now bear the title of “friend.” Thank you for being raw and real with me and letting me into your family for little snippets of time. I wouldn’t be able to capture the love between you if it weren’t for your willingness to let it shine. I’ve met some of the most beautiful souls over the past 4 years and have been so inspired by the love between couples, the bond between parents and their children, new life being welcomed into the world again and again… just so much awesome, and I feel unworthy to have been given a front row seat to all of it. Thank you for letting me be there.
Photographers, thank you for believing that I know what I’m doing. Ha!! No really. Thank you for attending the workshop (over 80 of you – wow!), for the words of encouragement, for being a constant source of camaraderie in The MVPs mentoring group, and for inspiring me with your own art. When I was little, I used to pretend that I was on a cooking show, showing people how to cook. I did this in my room pretty often. Haha! I thought this meant that I had a love for cooking, but as I grew up I realized that I have a love for teaching. For showing people how to do things that bring me happiness, in hopes that it will bring them some of that happiness. Thank you to the ends of the earth for sharing in my journey.
And now that I am done blabbing sap all over… it’s time to celebrate! And I plan to celebrate in some big ways. First, with a giveaway for photographers, happening right now.
