Welcome to my first blog post! Although I’ve had this new website for about a year, I never really made the time to sit down and make a blog post- It’s been that one thing on my “to-do” list that just never got done. But! Now that we’ve entered slower season for photography here in Chicago (not many people want to get their photo taken in freezing weather!), the time is finally here. Since I’m so behind, I figured the only way to start out was by doing a kind of “Year in Review” series. Each week for the next 12 weeks I’ll make a post with my top photos of each month, from each shoot I did. My definition of “top photos” ranges from photos I think are technically great, to moments that I found hilarious or sweet, to favorites that just caught my eye. So, without subjecting you to too muchÂ more of my writing, here we go!
January was my first official month as a full-time freelance photographer, so while most of it was spent figuring out how to be a business, working on my new website, branding, surviving the cold by cuddling my cat, ect, I still had some amazing first few shoots 🙂
