And thanks SOOO MUCH to all who entered with their comment below. I really enjoyed reading these. Truly. Some were very touching and just really helped me to see just how far-reaching a little photography can be :) I am sooo thankful to all of you for your support and if we haven’t had a chance to work together yet, please don’t hesitate to reach out! I look forward to working with you all in the future :)
You guys! I JUST realized something yesterday… Next week will be FIVE years since the unofficial start of DFinney Photography!!!
I was fired from my job just before my 22nd birthday in September 2009 and from there decided I’d give this thing a try… Thanks to Facebook’s handy timeline feature, I can look back on that exact moment :)
Here are a few of my first client shoots from my humble beginnings in 2009:
Clearly I loved the sun, funky colored actions, photo effects, and didn’t have a great handle on color.
Fast-forward a few years and here we are! I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I’m happier than ever that it led me here :)
I’d say I have a better handle on color now lol. I still love the sun but I've found my style to be much cleaner now than it was a few years ago. Who knows what it will be 5 years from now :)
Over the weekend we reached 3k fans on instagram so I decided to do a little giveaway! If you’re on instagram and would like to enter for your chance to win, check out the post, take care of the 3 necessary steps, and you’re all set!
Once I put that up and realized we were getting ready to hit 5 years, I just knew we had to do a HUGE giveaway to say how thankful I am for your support over the years. So here it is!
The winners can use the $250 towards ANY service offered- $250 off a mentor session, a standard portrait session, a wedding package, a mini session ($250 covers the mini session fee + a complimentary 5x7 print), or if you’ve recently taken photos with me, the $250 can be put towards additional prints and products- whatever you’d like! This giveaway is for everyone :)
