1.) The tiny miracles I get to meet– Everyday I get to meet brand new humans and it truly never gets old. It is so amazing that clients choose me to photograph their baby’s first professional memories. I love hearing the stories about their little miracles, struggles with infertility and their fight to get this little human on earth. It is truly humbling to hear every story and helps me never take my job for granted.

2.) The clients I get to meet– I love the relationships I’ve been able to build with repeat clients (thanks for coming back to me guys) and I love that being based in London, my clients are from all over the world. It is so interesting to hear about countries they have lived in and their stories about how they ended up in London, England. The beauty of a newborn session is there is lots of time to get to know each other!

3.) Getting to be creative daily– I never imagined when I was younger that I could have a job where I could be creative daily. This is what I’m most thankful for as the ability to create keeps me happy and inspires me to get better and better in my job.

4.) Getting to be my own boss– This has it’s ups and it’s downs! I’m terrible at giving myself life balance and telling myself to stop working but it does have it’s perks. I can create my own schedule, have my family visit from Canada when I want and get to create a beautiful business all by myself.

5.) That I love my job– After a few years of being a teacher, I am so grateful for the transition to photography. I was not passionate about teaching and found teaching teenagers very difficult. Teachers are amazing and I always wished I was better at it! I consider myself so lucky to find a field that I love being part of and getting to cuddle newborns daily!
