So Much to be Thankful For in 2013 {Asheville Portrait Photographer}

I have been trying to write this post for about two weeks now. My head swirls with all of the topics I wanted to touch on before the end of the year; new photography promotions, being thankful, my favorite images from this year and the list goes on. The main point for this posting however is merely to express how grateful I am for this past year, how thankful I am for the opportunity to grow here in Asheville both as an entrepreneur and an artist. For those of you that have worked with Studio 828 Photography, THANK YOU! I would not be on this path without you and I cherish each of you, as clients and as friends. I have some really fun, divalicious new promotions coming for 2014 and I cannot wait to share them with you!

I am thankful, humbly and graciously. I have had wonderful adventures this year! Opportunities to travel up and down the eastern seaboard from Florida to Manhattan (I am a “half back” after-all).  I have been lucky enough to shoot for some of my favorite people and reconnect with friends I haven’t seen for a decade! To celebrate wonderful new chapters in their lives and to help some come out of their shells and remember that they too are wonderful, beautiful souls that deserve the light and care that these photography sessions bring to you and in turn developed wonderful friendships along the way.

Thank you Asheville. YOU truly have blessed me.

XoXo,

Cat
