{ dream }

I opened my mailbox yesterday to find a sweet & adorable gift from Ashley, a friend of mine. She’s starting up what I think will be a very successful photography business, and I’ve been helping her out with a few things. Just answering a few questions about photography, software and business start-up, and helping her with her logo and brand. I’ve gotten bits of advice as I’ve grown my own business, and I’m always happy to share that knowledge with someone else who shares my passion. The gift she sent is so cute and perfect, totally something I would have picked up myself had I seen it in a shop. Ashley, I absolutely love it, thank you for being so thoughtful :)
This sparked a little internal conversation. It’s funny how a dream can become a reality before you even realize it… I can’t tell you how many times throughout my life I’ve thought how incredible it would be to be a professional photographer, and how much I would love to capture my vision and share my images with the world. And here I am, living it each and every day. Pretty amazing! 2008 was a huge year for K. Holly Photography: I took my part-time passion to a full-time profession, went through countless logo/website/blog redesigns (hehee), met some amazing people, and took thousands of photographs! Thank you to those who have encouraged and supported me along the way, and to my 2008 clients (and 2007 clients and models!) for being themselves, being part of my vision, and gracing the pages of my blog and website! You are the greatest!! ((hugs!))


Right after I posted this, Lisa Kae of Elite Photography posted a new blog too… which includes pictures of yours truly! In my wedding dress! She held a fabulous workshop for beginning photographers, and let me run around in my wedding dress and be photographed by her and her students. It was a blast!! Check out her images here>>> Me on the Elite Photography Blog!
