i mentioned in my birthday post that this day was coming up. one year ago today helenbyrd.com made it’s debut on the interwebs. i decided to give up the studio space to work from home, try to expand the wedding part of my business and give myself the freedom to use my camera when/where/how i wanted to ALL the time – launching the website was the final step in making it official. it was the scariest and best decision i’ve ever made. there have been countless lessons learned, relationships formed, 20,000 miles put on my car and a few tears shed along the way. i am so grateful for all the joys and challenges that each day brings. i look forward to all the adventures the next year holds. cheers!
this is one of my all-time favorite images from a wedding last fall.
