This is going to be a big year. A tough year. An exciting year. A year I both dread and fear but at the same time welcome with open arms.
Why the big deal? Well, we’re moving. And not just an hour or two away like last time, this time we’re moving to Calgary. Yup… a whole new province. So if anyone knows people in Calgary who may want a photoshoot, please spread the word (I’ll be there and ready to shoot by July). Or if you know anything cool about the city… a good hairdresser, babysitter, you name it I’d LOVE to hear it. We’re leaving behind family, friends, contacts, clients, colleagues – all the good stuff – and heading to somewhere where we have to start from scratch. A place we know very few people. But we’re always told not to get too comfortable, that you have to put yourself out there to grow. I’m hoping that’s true. If it wasn’t for our move to Woodstock I may have never ventured into this photography thing but here I am and I love it. Now I’m looking forward to what Calgary has in store for us.
For all my current clients I will be back. I’m coming back for two weddings in 2012 and hope to book a few shoots during those visits. I’ll post the dates and available times as soon as the flights are booked so I can book some shoots as well. If anyone is really interested in a 2012 shoot let me know and I can put you on a contact list to get first choice at a spot during one of my visits. And that said, depending on how quickly our house sells, I may be here until late spring and will try to fit as many shoots in before we move as possible.
In the mean time I’m excited about my ‘Beyond Cheese‘ workshops (and if you haven’t already, check out the contest that could win you a spot) and I’m also planning to do a couple more mentor sessions over the winter months (contact me if interested).
So that’s our big news – I hope everyone else has a new adventure planned for 2012. HAPPY NEW YEAR. I wish you the best of everything!
Now here’s a little look at what made 2011 so special for me…
