Happy First Year to Me!

I survived my first year as a Los Angeles photographer – phew! What a whirlwind. I’ve learned so much about business and myself, and I continue to learn more everyday. I truly believe that one of the reasons I have come so far (although I have along way to go!) is because I am surrounded by the most supportive, loving and encouraging souls. I’m constantly uplifted by my husband and family when I sometimes feel like I’m the worst photographer in the world and want to throw in the towel; we all have those moments, right?! And the next day, I wake up with a fresh outlook and I’m in love again with my work and what I’ve accomplished so far.

I have amazing friends who have let me shoot them to build my portfolio and trusted me enough to capture transformative moments in their lives – and for that I will always be grateful. I also have two amazing tech savvy best friends, Erik and Rochelle, who have helped me completely build my website from scratch. They received plenty of late night calls and texts from me in tears and frustration. However, the finished product is more than I could have dreamed.

Through this photography journey of mine, I have made some amazing new friends that I now consider to be family. Below are my top 20 favorite moments captured; it was very hard for me to choose as I have so so many favorites! I have been present to welcome five new souls in to this world. Celebrated a woman’s body as it grows a new life inside her. Witnessed as families made new memories with each other. And I’ve helped women to see how beautiful they actually are. I am so excited to see what I can do in this next year! Thank you for coming along with me on this adventure! Love, Lindsay.
