Personal and Professional
2013 was full of big decisions, life-changing risks, big moves towards unknown results. It's simultaneously thrilling and terrifying to make these leaps as a 20-something that will effect your future drastically. Luckily, I do not have to make them alone, as I have an amazingly supportive, insightful, and dedicated husband who is crucial in every step. Together, 2013 brought us 4 overseas deployments and safe returns. It brought us the decision to focus my business and develop my craft for a target demographic of children and families. It brought us the decision to step away from life with the military and move towards new career opportunities. It brought us new friends, new adventures, new goals, and new dreams. It brought me inspiration to brand, re-brand, and brand again untill finally, everything clicked and L.O. Photography became Firefly Photography. I am still wondering if it's true that this dream of mine continues to become more of a reality.
When I click my camera, there are some times when I know immediately that I've caught the perfect moment. It sticks out not only among that session, but all of them. A smile, a twinkle in the eye, something shared that reveals a memory being made. These photos are some of my top favorites from the past year, a journey with many highlights in which I got to work with some wonderful families. The special moments in their lives that I had the opportunity to capture became special moments for me as well, and milestones for the beginning of my career.
A big thank you to all of my 2013 clients and blessings to you in the new year with all the future special moments that it will bring!
