The last year has been a year of changes…a year of learning…a year of growth. Honestly, it’s been a year that I look back on and am glad that I came through, but I don’t really ever want to replay it!
Let me back up a bit. A little over a year ago I started studying different camera and lighting techniques. Then I was challenged by the blog post of a photographer from Pennsylvania that I follow and think highly of, Char Newswanger. She shared a bit of her journey and how her choices and decisions led her places. That’s where I felt I was…I was either going to remain somewhat stuck where I was or I was going to work up the courage and “gutsy-ness” and take the plunge and go for it! So, I contacted Char about the possibility of shadowing her, loaded up the boys, and traveled to Pennsylvania to continue my process of learning.
Fast forward a bit and the changes continued. I decided to call my business Jessica Photography as opposed to A Moment to Remember, which I had formerly been using. I still plan to use A Moment to Remember as my tag line, just not business name. In addition to this I decided to get a website/blog, for which I thank Greg Hostetler for his work and design….Greg was super easy to work with! I also decided that I needed some “branding” so I called on my graphic designer, Eric Miller. Eric came up with a new logo for Jessica Photography—which I love! Weeks after I chose the logo I found out that it is truly a one-of-a-kind design, because it’s not a computer font it’s Eric’s handwriting!
What’s ahead?! Only God knows! I’m working on trusting Him for what’s ahead and the business that comes my way, and in the meantime I’ll try to continue to treasure my family, the savor the uniqueness of each day, and enjoy the ride the Lord has in store!
