This is been a crazy year for me and my family, and while I’m not a spiritual or religious person, I would say that the first word that comes to mind is that it’s been a blessing. A blessing because I got to stay home with my kids for most of the year, every day, help them develop and grow and learn and play and most Dad’s and some families never get that chance. A blessing because my only source of income came from photography, something I love, and it came in a sustainable way that lets me venture into a second year of doing it full time.
I’m thankful to my clients, last year I was shooting random portraits & events and this year took a big swing into the corporate world of commercial product, interior and business portraiture. Every person who hired me to work with them this year supported my work, and supported my family. I’m honoured that you feel that we’re worthy of your generosity in exchange for these little frames I click for you. I’m thankful that I had the time to pursue a personal project – my Stay at Home Dad series – which lead to more work, more family portrait work, but the kind that gets to showcase my humour and passion for lighting and interacting with people, many who have said unfathomably good things about me that I probably don’t deserve, but will certainly accept graciously.
A big year for the website too – I think I’m finally sort of popular thanks to people like you, reading this: 72,000 pageviews, 19,000 visitors… I’ve looked at my old posts, they’re really not that great – but thank you all anyways – and the year’s not over yet!
