One Year Ago

It was one year ago today that I stepped outside of my password protected site where I posted pictures for friends and family and took my first step towards Lydia Photography online. Now, over 5,000 visitors and one Facebook page later, it is no longer the plain, boring, white site it once was. I remember spending hour after hour almost in tears trying to figure out html, css, and why the rotating banner just wouldn't show up right. If it weren't for a friend of a friend, you would still see a block of white instead of pictures at the top of the page!

God has been so good to me in the past year! I've had wonderful clients who were willing to pay me to do something I love. I've made so many new photography friends like Laura, Catie, and Patti. I've gotten to shoot with amazing photographers like Amy, Lisa, and Hannah. I've had friends who were willing to smile time and time again so I could practice. My family has been supportive and jumped in to help more than once. And last, but not least, it has been so fun to read comments from readers. It makes my day when I get notified of a new comment! Thanks everyone for making it such a great year!
