What a strange year 2020 has been!!! It has taken all of us by surprise, I don’t think anyone could have imagined what was going to happen. Throughout the year we have all had different battles with health, work, personal issues and loss. Nobody knows what is going on behind closed doors so it has been even more important to be thoughtful, patient and kind.
It was supposed to be the best year yet… My business reached the age of 20 and I had huge celebrations planned, but, of course, they were postponed. We have all had to adapt and adjust the way we do things and live our lives. I have tried to use this time to reassess the way I work and how I would like to keep moving forward.
Amongst everything else going on around me, I have managed to keep working even throughout the periodic stopping and starting. I have captured memories for different families through family photoshoots. I have captured photos for those setting up new businesses. I have refreshed headshots for people within existing businesses and professions, for when the world returns to normal. I have taken socially distanced school portraits, although I have missed all the other school events; plays, dress up days, nativities, sport days, matches and concerts. Finally, I have fulfilled orders from those who have had the time to sit down and go through the archives, ordering photos that they didn’t have the time to choose before. This has shown the importance of keeping photos up to date, by making sure businesses stay current and ensuring personal photos capture moments that are so fleeting.
As this year draws to a close, I would like to thank my clients for all their trust and support throughout this difficult time. It has meant a lot to have had so many gorgeous faces smiling back at me and I would like to think that I have made a small difference in peoples’ lives too.
