This year marks the fifth year of my freelance photo business. I started taking photos (semi) professionally in 2012 when I was a senior in high school, and since then I have done hundreds (thousands maybe?) of photoshoots and videoshoots for various friends and clients. I have a long way to go before I can freelance full time as a career, but right now I'm incredibly proud of what I've accomplished, especially over the course of 2017.
When I started this year, I was finishing my senior year of college. I graduated in the spring, and since then I've been working a part-time photo job for about six months. I got my first website this year, and I started working more heavily on finding my exact photo style. 12 months later, I think I've finally come to understand what I want to do and how I want to showcase my photo abilities. I want to take more portraits, but I also want to focus more on social media content - for others, but also for myself. Looking into the new year I want to seek out more clients that I can build relationships with, who I can help grow while also growing myself.
To all of you who have read my shoddy text posts and liked my obsessive posts on Instagram this year - thank you. It means the world to me that you continue to support my business - whether that's in hiring me or admiring me from afar. I'm looking forward to an exciting 2018 and I hope I can be more consistent to all of you in the new year!
Here's my year in photos!
