I am simply in awe of this past year. It amazes me when I think how 2008 began and now how it is ending. Last New Year’s Eve I was a photographer who was finally ready to take the next step. I had been working in the field for 5 years, but always for someone else. It finally felt like my turn to pursue my dream that I’d had since I was a teenager. And that’s how Heidi Mitchell Photography began.
I didn’t know what to expect. With no weddings or portrait sessions on the books, it was unclear to me whether or not I would be able to make this thing work. Twelve months later, I’ve completed 3 weddings and more than 30 portrait sessions. I have 9 weddings on the books for 2009 before the year has even started. I photographed a major event for the Florida Real Estate Journal and several things for Central Florida Health Alliance. I saw my images published on corporate websites, newspapers and magazines. I am truly overwhelmed by the way that my friends and community supported me, and I am humbled by the way that God blessed me this year.
A huge “thank you” is in order to all of you who invited me to document your wedding or get to know your family. Thank you for believing in me and supporting my dream. I am elated to see what 2009 has in store for my business and my family :)
Here are some of my favorite images from 2008! (Sit back and relax, because this is a long one!)
