For those of you who don't know me... I'm Kimberly Ann. My last name really is Sweet - I love flowers and giraffes and anything with cilantro (except maybe drinks, that would be weird). For visual reference I'm the blonde one in the picture below...not the furry one - that's Mya - I'm the one swooning over that handsome fella that gave me my cool last name.
My Linkedin account (that I never use) sent me an email this week saying "Congratulations on your work anniversary"! It took me a while to realize it was talking about my photography business. One year! ONE YEAR!!! I have been blessed with the opportunity to meet new people and capture their memories for one whole year! How is that even possible! As I look back at the families I've had the opportunity to meet and the stories they have shared with me I am reminded that I have THE coolest job in the world and that I am forever indebted to you guys who are so kind enough to allow me into your families for an evening. Thank you for sharing your stories with me and for letting me capture a little bit of your beautiful lives on my camera. <3
This week was a real eye opener for me. I was sick, I was exhausted, I was stressed, I was overwhelmed, I was cranky, and I was a giant blonde ball of emotions because of the aforementioned situations. Not a pretty sight - I promise. And then a few things happened. YOU guys happened. I was fortunate enough to photograph a GORGEOUS wedding this past weekend and the couple (who I absolutely adore) surprised me by sending me flowers at my other work. (I'm also the Administrative Assistant to the President at CR. She's pretty much the most amazing boss ever - Hi Kathy!). Aren't they pretty?!
Not only are they pretty - they smell AMAZING!!! I've had people coming by my desk all week just to smell them. They definitely brightened my spirits!
On Wednesday I dropped off some pictures before I met up with my Team In Training Team (we're running and raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society - ask me about it!! It's a pretty awesome organization!) This family gave me the SWEETEST hand written card! I teared up when I read it. Their kind words absolutely meant the world to me!
THANK YOU SO MUCH for giving me the opportunity to be on this crazy beautiful photography journey. Thank you for making this past year such a great adventure. You guys really are making my dreams come true every single day.
I'm going to finish this blog up with some wedding pictures from last Saturday because I'm really feeling the LOVE right now. <3 <3 <3 Kimberly Ann
Thank you for reading! <3
