2016 [Chilliwack photographer]


What a year. 2016 was a year of learning for me. While Ive been doing photography for a few years part time, it was my first real year of solely being a photographer as my full time career. Like anything worth while, it has not been the easiest journey. I’ve had moments where I thought quitting was the right decision, but the obsession and passion I have for this art made it impossible. Thankfully, I also have the most encouraging husband and support system at home that keep me focused in the most positive way imaginable.

I think being obsessed with photography is an absolute must to keep a business successful. Weather it be the edits I’m working on, the locations I want to explore, my never ending need for props, or my obsession with light or shadows. In one way or another photography is always on my mind. Its like its a piece of me now. That is what keeps me going in this business.

While there are so many more things I want to do in 2017, I sit and look at my past year in review and feel, proud. Proud I stayed true to myself, my passion, my art, and followed my dreams and became what I always wanted to become. A photographer.  Im thankful my husband encouraged me to follow my passion. Now I can show my kids if you follow your hopes and dreams… they too can be anything they want to be with determination, hard work and passion.

I wanted to post 2392834037 more images from this year, but didn’t want to over due it so here are a few I decided I wanted to share before this year comes to an end.

If you got this far into this blog… thank you. You are likely the exact reason I kept going. Supporters, clients and my sweet family. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

happy new year.
