Wow. 2022 was an unbelievable year.
This was the first full year since Jake and I quit our jobs to run our business together full-time, and I’m so happy that we took the chance. Last year, Jake joined my business as my videographer, drone pilot, and second shooter, and he’s been the best addition to my business! We absolutely love working together, and we’ve both grown as artists and business owners during this year.
This year, I also started offering business coaching to other photographers, and I created several new free trainings. You can check out my education for photographers here.
As Jake and I reflect back on this year, we feel especially grateful to all of you. Every couple, friend, family member, and supporter who has been with us each step of the way. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to run this business that we love. We’re truly grateful for all of you. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
