I’ve never photographed a live proposal.  It was SO much fun!  I even hid in the trees…so incognito!  It was a beautiful day which gave us a gorgeous sunset over the ridge…Congratulations you two…

    michelle - Thank you Melanie! I was such a true joy meeting you! Your smile just warms my heart!

So, it’s been a couple weeks since this happened and I still have to pinch myself.  I’ve learned so much these 8 years I’ve been in business.  The biggest being, that this world of photography can consume you.  It can take you over and turn you into a person who needs fluffing over every single image you create, turning you into a social media addict.  This happened to me a few years ago.  Then I realized my real relationships were suffering so I stepped back from that world of need and didn’t look back.  I decided that creating fulfilling work for myself and making my clients happy was what really mattered in order to achieve success.  The number of likes, blog hits, or followers was not important in the grand scheme of things.  I’ll be completely honest, it did affect my search result standings and the number of followers I gained, but my kids didn’t have to beg me to get off the computer anymore and my mind was in every moment, not just my body.  I’m happy with the balance I’ve found.  So to end up on this list…it just fills my heart with such joy.  It reminds me that staying true to yourself  is the best business move you can make.  Thank you Clickin Moms and Click Magazine!
