It was 2006 and I remember registering my business name with Fair Trading and feeling simultaneously terrified, excited, optimistic and so very nervous! What if I’m not good enough? What if no one booked me? What if I fail? These doubts and a million other questions were running through my head. But with the support of my husband and family to took the leap. Since then we’ve had 2 beautiful kids and a few weeks ago, Jarrod and I celebrated TWELVE years of marriage! We were young 22 year olds and couldn’t wait to be married. Our wedding was what triggered my love of weddings and all things bridal. In 2005 I had the opportunity to work with an amazing photographer who took me under my wing. I am forever grateful to Di who is still my bestest bestie til this day.
The past ten years have exceeded anything I could have possibly hoped for. I have had the opportunity to work with so many amazing awesome couples, families and kids. Then there’s the other amazing behind-the-scenes people I love working with – the fabulous videographers, celebrants, make-up artists, hairdressers, stylists, venue coordinators and so many more. To say that I’m thankful is a huge understatement. I’m so honoured to capture and preserve memories as a job – something I pinch and remind myself daily.
I’ve met and formed friendships with other photographers whose experience and talent has led me to continuously grow and challenge myself to become better. Their guidance and willingness to share their knowledge is something I am so so thankful for (Di Watson this is you!!)! They have provided support and honest feedback which has allowed me to grow and explore ways to be better for my clients.
I can’t wait to see what the next decade holds! I cannot wait to see the familiar faces of my return clients and meet some amazing new people! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
