The Vander"blog" has turned 5 years old! Where the heck does the time go?
I want to thank all of you who have stuck by me for all these years -- and the newbies too. I always love hearing from you :) Thank you for letting me know my ramblings do not fall on deaf ears.
I also wanted to thank all of my clients, and I know I am biased, but I am just so darn appreciative of how awesome you all are. Loyal, supportive, trusting, and best of all, I consider you my friend.
When I left the law firm in 2008, I warned them that I may come crawling back for my job. I had no idea what was in store for me. I didn't really know what my goal was with my photography business or how I was going to accomplish it. To be honest, I was "winging" it. Looking back at my five-year-younger self (with only ONE child at that time ;) I see a girl who was determined with original ideas and a passion to succeed. Luckily, it has all worked out just the way I had hoped. I wouldn't change a thing...except maybe having more time for blogging ;)
Thank you, truly, from the deepest part of my heart, for believing in me and trusting me with your families' memories. You can imagine the life milestones I have witnessed and documented over the past five years...so many amazing moments with all of you. I am a lucky girl.
I look forward to what the next five years brings. I hope you are a part of it.
