Good Thursday evening to you! Just stopping in with a lonnng overdue post...
It's been a while since my last update, but I've been busy trying to get my life together. Although I haven't made the effort lately to (publicly) #talkaboutuncomfortablethings, they are still very present. I began talking about my struggle living with mental illness last year when I was newly diagnosed, but this year I haven't done much sharing. Not because I am ashamed, I'm just tired.
So much so, that every time I sat down to write this blog, it went a little something like this:
"Too busy managing to sit and talk about how you've been managing is very real." -Yodith D.
One step forward, three steps back, two to the side, a spin, and so goes the waltz with my mental health. Most times I don't know who the DJ is, much less what song is playing. So while my clients are taken care of, this post for a long while seemed like an immovable mountain that I could simply tip toe around. Jotting down an outline felt like too much. Selecting photos felt like too much. Typing coherent thoughts felt like too much... and now I kinda want to lie back down.
But I'm finallllly pushing through so... on with the updates:
First up? DFinney Photography turned 8 years old earlier this month.... Eight!
I also turned 30 this month, and honestly, I can hardly believe that I've been at it this long. The majority of my 20's! I'm learning more and more every day that time works in its own strange way and this past year is no exception.
My wonderful clients have kept me busier than EVER and I couldn't be more thankful. In addition to creating beautiful imagery with clients I've come to love, these past 8 years have connected me with other like minded individuals who have become invaluable! You have been patient with me in my vulnerability and I can't express how much that means to me. I am so thankful to be apart of such a loving and supportive community.
"In the midst of the ups and downs you go through, I hope you never lose sight of how truly loved and admired you are." -Samia M.
What else, what else...oh yes! I was featured in the September/October 2017 issue of Click Magazine! 😬
I was contacted a few months back to do a short write-up and share a few photos for an article on my lifestyle business imagery! I'd honestly forgotten about it because things have been so hectic, but earlier this month I finally received the physical copy and I was ecstatic!
Like... this is an absolutely stellar publication. And to have MY work featured in it? I really can't fully express how much this means to me. It was an honor to be considered and I am so thankful for the opportunity!
Before I go, I want to remind you that tomorrow is the official start of Fall! Andddd Fall Minis are on the way!
Fall Minis are being held on Saturday, November 4th and Sunday the 5th!
Booking for Fall Minis will begin on Monday, October 2nd at 10:30am EDT for those on the mailing list, and Wednesday, October 4th for everyone else. Now because Fall Minis book VERY quickly, I would suggest you join the mailing list if you haven't already, but that's merely a suggestion... a strong one lol.
Interested? Check out more info here. Details listed are for the Summer Mini Special, but the pricing and package info is the same. Fall details will be added on October 1.
Well... I think that's it!
Thanks for hanging in there to the end with me :) I look forward to hearing from you soon and getting you on the calendar for your Fall session!
