2017 was a whirlwind || Adventurous Portrait Photographer Fort Bragg, California

I am just getting around to blogging sessions from the end of 2017.  woooh, it was a whirlwind towards the end. Oh who I am kiddind, it was a whirlwind the entire year.  Up until the beginning of 2017, for he most part, I had put my camera away. I purposely stopped advertising, took down my website, quietly put my camera in it's case, and just stopped.  Cold turkey. 

Why?!? Why would you do that?!?  Well friends, I went through a season of pain and sadness that rendered me incapable of joyful creativity. Photography felt more like a job than a passion at the time that I called it quits. I needed to take a break. I needed to focus on the things in my life that filled me up. My family needed me and I needed them. So, I put the camera away, knowing that I could pick it back up when I was ready.  I would pick it back up when I heard God calling me.

Well, He definitely called. Ahem, screamed. A few emails from a local vendor, a little encouragement from my friends, and a whole lot of love from my husband and I was back. March 2017 was going to be the time. I heard and answered the call. So here, we are. I am getting down and dirty with the business aspects of this art form. Blogging is just one of the ways that I intend to serve my clients/friends through this talent that I have been gifted. 

Are you ready?  No more slacking. You will be hearing from me at least once a week. So what would you like to see? I want to write things you want to read and share photos you want to look at! Tell me in the comments. How can I serve you through my blog?

While you are thinking about it, here are some of my favorite photos from 2017!
