I remember the things you all said.
"This could never be profitable."
"I admire you stepping out and taking a chance."
"You're the hardest worker I know."
"You're being selfish."
"You're neglecting your family."
"You're so talented."
"This might just work..."
"I'm rooting for you."
"You've inspired me."
"I'm crying. These are the most beautiful photos I've ever seen."
"What you have done here. We will cherish these for the rest of our lives and our children after us."
You may have inspired me beyond belief. You may have torn me down, but never kept me down. You may have watched me from launch day, September 23, 2015. You may have randomly clicked on this intimate page by chance and are just meeting me now. (Hi, Welcome! ♥) Whomever you are, you care. If you didn't, you wouldn't be here.
For that, I thank you. If there was no one to share my art with, I wouldn't be able to create in the same way that I've grown to love so much.
This page is for you. The stalkers. The onlooking Photographer's. My family. Vendor's I LOVE to collaborate with. Past clients who will always have a little piece of my heart in their collections. I dedicate this page to Y-O-U.

None of this happened over night! I promise. What you see before you is countless overnighters. So many tears and popped bottles. Nearly every penny invested back into education and brand development. Days, maybe months worth of free youtube tutorials being played 10 seconds at a time as I tried each method and pushed each button on my end. If you've ever gone out on a limb to ask me a question, I probably answered it with WAY more vigor than you expected.
Back in the day I ran a small local photographer's club "Sincerely The Seasons". I had so much fun with everyone but soon discovered mass education didn't feel right for me. I LOVE to help other photographer's, but only when I feel uniquely invited to do so. If you're interested in mentoring shoot me an email! firstname.lastname@example.org

I probably love to hate you, too. ♥
Competition lights me on fire. I seriously LOVE it. I feed off of it.
If you're up for a shoot-off, email me. email@example.com. Seriously, I'm challenging you so you can challenge me, too. Let's pick a time and place, a model, and a panel to see who shot it best.
Competition doesn't have to be mean. It can be honest and in good fun. Don't let the Rising Tide Society turn you into sheep. Just like good sportsmanship in athletics. We'll start with a handshake and end with a handshake...or champagne/cocktails. We'll probably come away with some kick-ass images, too.
Remember, my achievements or failures have nothing to do with you...unless you want them to...at a specific place and time.
If we worked together or you're hoping to some day, I APPRECIATE YOU!!!
I remember when I first started, ogling over vendors I dreamt of working with some day. Venues I'd wash dishes for just to take two frames, dress shops I'd vacuum just to photograph a scrap of lace from a designer gown, I know what it feels like.
If you want to collaborate on something, shoot me an email! firstname.lastname@example.org I'll see if we can't figure something out.
If we worked together and you'd love some photos for your business that I took at an event we collaborated on, let me know. I'll send them right over! email@example.com
All of the pretty details I have the privilege to photograph usually come down to your hard work! THANK YOU from the bottom of my crazy creative heart.
Through all the Ups, Downs, & All Arounds.
Thank you for Loving us! ♥
Thank you for all the last minute baby sitting!

I SEE YOU. I LOVE YOU. THANK YOU!!!!
There is a small group of people who have watched my business grow from DAY ONE. People who have cheered me and my family on EVERY STEP OF THE WAY unconditionally.
You. You're the person that lifts me up when a stranger tries to push me down or make me feel unworthy.
You're the person I've asked for for help when my feelings are hurt and the thought of quitting makes the tiniest flicker. You've helped me blow out that flame...and sometimes, you don't even know that's what you've done.
For you? Just keep doing what you do. I love you. I'm going to throw blog posts and treats your way and not tell anyone else. Because you get me. Keep you're eye on that blog, friend.
