Things in the SMP family have been very busy indeed. So busy, that I have not had a chance to give as much attention as I should to this blog. Since my last post in 2012, much has happened.
2012 turned out to be a wonderful wedding year with 18 weddings on our calendar. We also got to help several families preserve other important memories and milestones through portrait sessions.
2012 brought a happy addition to our own family as well. My son, Louis, was born on September 12, 2012. I took a few months off for maternity leave, and decided to limit the number of weddings I did in 2013 to one per month so that I could spend more time with my son. As you can see, his adorable little self is worth it.
I had several lovely weddings in 2013 and I hope to share them with you soon. I also continued offering portrait sessions. My last wedding of 2013 was a wedding in Ohio in the middle of October. I consider all my weddings to be special, but this one was particularly endearing to me because the bride and I have been friends since the 3rd grade. I am very excited to share their images soon because I just love all the fall colors.
2014 is turning out to be a wonderful year as well. In addition to running this business, I am teaching art to middle school and elementary school children. I love every day of it just as much as I love photographing weddings and portraits. Due to this additional endeavor, I am only taking one wedding per month during the school year (summer months excluded) so that I can ensure my clients still receive wonderful customer service from me.
