Oh my goodness, you guys. I think I speak for everyone when I say, it has been extremely difficult since this COVID pandemic started. I know I have been working harder than ever during this time, so I am incredibly honored and thankful to once again be listed as one of Baltimore’s best newborn photographers!! 😊 Out of 236 photographers who were reviewed, I was chosen as one of the top 18 this year.
I am unbelievably blessed to have so many wonderful clients who put me on this list each year. I absolutely cannot do it without you beautiful and caring people. I feel like I become friends with all of you and we have really leaned on each other and supported one another through this pandemic. Through our lockdown, you opted to reschedule and didn't even think about canceling our sessions. When my children and I were sick with COVID, you all stuck by my side and sent well wishes our way. And I have sent my love and prayers to every one of you who have also been sick with or affected by COVID. It is always a pleasure to meet and work with such amazing human beings full of love and kindness, especially during this time. So I thank each and every one of you for putting me on this list, and for choosing me to capture the moments that mean the most to you. ♥♥♥
Looking back, I thought 2019 was tough and 2020 was going to be the best year yet for my business. But instead of growing my business more, I ended up having to cut back on my sessions so that I could do kindergarten virtually with my twins. But I have remained thankful. I am thankful that I have my husband and children and we are healthy. I am thankful we have a roof over our heads. I am thankful we have food to keep our bellies full. I am thankful for my clients who have kept my business up and running. And I am thankful for every single frontline worker and those who continuously work to keep our country running.
This year, our twins (and I!) graduated virtual kindergarten and they started first grade in person. There were definitely lots of tears for me this past year, but I remain thankful that things are beginning to return to normal for them and for my business. Last month was the busiest for me since before the pandemic started, so I remain thankful and have faith in better days ahead. Slowly, but surely, I believe we can get there.
Thank you, Expertise, for recognizing my dedication year after year and featuring me on this list. ♥
