Whilst compiling images for this post, I was floored by how freaking blessed I have been this past year. I can't actually believe how far my business has been able to come in just one year, and my heart is eternally grateful. To my clients - your lives & your love have blessed me more than I can tell you. Thank you for trusting me, for filling my heart with joy, for being crazy along with me, but most of all for your love. The love you share is why I do what I do - after every shoot I find myself loving my husband more, loving my life more, loving the beauty that lies all around us. Thank you for setting my heart on fire. Thank you for making my dream a reality.
My greatest wish & prayer is that my images will capture even a fraction of what I see in you, for you to treasure for all time! :)
With a heart full of love & gratefulness
