Here it is. My first blog post, and there's no better way to start this off than to publicly thank my husband for being my biggest cheerleader this entire year. He's taken it upon himself to do the laundry, dishes, late night grocery trips, and so forth without complaint while I studied away. He's put up with countless practice photography sessions, my late nights working on photography assignments, and so much more. He has been supportive as we slowly updated all of my camera equipment this year; even though I know it made him (and me) a little sick to our stomachs at the cost of it all. He's the one that pushed me to finally take the plunge and start my own business, and for that I am forever grateful.
