I am grateful for many things. Most of them have to do with my family, home, and waking up every day. I am grateful for the unseasonable warm weather on any day it happens in November, all of our animals, and parents who placed a premium on education and trying everything at least once.
We have all been going through quite an ordeal in this country, with COVID dominating our news. My studio was shut down between March and June, and when our state came out of the "yellow" phase and into the "green," I complied with a COVID plan for continuing.
I am so grateful for the clients who called and changed studio appointments to outdoor sessions. I am thankful for all of my clients in general, but those that went with the flow and still pursued photos of their furkids and families during these difficult times, have a special place in my heart.
I am grateful for those who know that capturing a memory with their pet, then valuing it enough to place it as artwork on their wall, is a priority--because time marches on.
I am so very thankful to have been graced with the task of capturing those memories. This weekend, as I finish another batch of holiday cards for a client, I am aware that 2020 is coming to an end. We are all unsure what 2021 will bring us, and it's been a very long road to get to the end of this year. But I do know I will be ready, once again, in the New Year, to make sure that beautiful memories of pets and their people are captured by my camera.
Oh, and I am ready for more Border Collies.
