KC Cake Smash Photography | Wild One

Annabelle, or Annie, is one of five sisters.  She is the daughter of one of my long-time clients.  Like so long ago clients that I photographed her oldest sister in my tiny home studio.

The commute was great, but the space was limited and I definitely had imposter syndrome. Without a commercial space, I just didn’t feel as professional as I wanted to be.  Yet, my clients kept coming back and trusting me with their most precious memories.  I am so grateful for those who hung in there with me through the years of parking in my driveway and my cat peeking in through the french doors to my shooting space.  It really was humbling starting out in your home.  I really think it makes me appreciate the space I have now and how far I have come.  It also makes me so thankful for those clients who came along with me over the last 13 years.  Omg.  I really can’t believe it’s been that long.

Right now I am writing this, sitting at a desk in the space I used to shoot my sessions in.  The hardwood is carpeted over, the walls are no longer white but instead navy blue.  There’s a cat hanging out in the corner.  She’s allowed in the room now.  And I can sit here and reflect on how far I’ve come and be proud.  But most of all very, very grateful.
