2014 was quite a year for Captured Grace by Erin as a family photography business and for me as a person. It was my first full year in business and exceeded my expectations. I photographed amazing families, strong NICU fighters, precious newborns, parents in love, a baptism that included a surprise proposal (she said yes!) and holiday mini-sessions. I also added Day In the Life sessions and it makes my heart sing every time I get to tell the story of family.
It was also a year of self-exploration and discovery. Business is hard, especially when it comes mixed with an additional full time job, being a wife, sister, daughter, auntie and friend. Friends, there were so many nights of doubt and tears, and temptation to give up, which my husband graciously talked me out of. I threw myself into education and am so grateful for places like CreativeLive and photographers that throw back the curtain to mentor others. I can sum up this year in two words ~ GROWTH and GRACE.
As we are only a few hours away from 2015 I cannot help but dream of what this year will bring. I am excited to add Day in the Life sessions and move away from the baby in a basket newborn session to a more natural and documentary style. I know family photography makes my heart sing and that my mission is to tell the story of our most formative relationships. Family truly writes a beautiful story and I want to document every part of it!
Enjoy a few highlights from 2014 and consider joining me for the journey of 2015.
