I wish I could find exactly the right words to say just how amazing this year has been. My business totally took off this year, I put everything I had into it, and I continue to do so. That's the thing about Meghan Leigh Photography, whenever I wasn't sure about what I wanted to do in life, I was sure about wedding photography. I was sure about my business. If I can say one thing about 2016, it's that it completely and totally confirmed that. I will forever want to document couple's wedding days. To be able to witness weddings, and capture the beauty of them, is really an indescribable feeling. I'm so grateful I get to do what I absolutely love doing, and I know how truly lucky I am.
I can't believe how fast this year has flown by. I photographed 15 weddings, photographed a handful of boudoir sessions, collaborated with so many creative individuals, and planned for the future. When I think about 15 weddings in 2016, I think back on the 3 I photographed in 2015. 12 more. When you put your heart and soul into something, no matter what anyone else says, you will see benefit from it. It may take days, months, or even years. Just don't give up. Keep on keeping on. =]
Thank you, from the bottom of my huge, sappy, marshmallow heart. You all are why I keep going when it gets rough [as every small business owner knows it does], you all remind me why I do this. Why this is so great, and why this means so much to me that I would never be able to give it up. I want to thank one of my past managers at my full time job who supported my dreams, who accommodated me and took interest in me babbling about weddings and showing him countless wedding photos I had taken the day after a wedding when I'm sure it was the last thing he wanted to do. I feel like he had a big part in helping me realize this is what I want to do with my life, this is what I need to do to be happy, and he supported that 100%. Not many other managers truly care about what you want to do with your life, as I'm sure we have all learned, and I cannot thank him enough.
So thank you. Each and every one of you. Here are some highlights of my 2016....
I hope you love these images as much as I do. They bring a smile to my face and make my heart so happy when I think about how amazing this past year was. I have a feeling 2017 will be just as phenomenal, maybe, dare I say it, even better?
I love all of you, so stinking much.
