Hey there friends!!! I truly hope you all had the Merriest of Christmases. My family and I sure did!!
We narrowly escaped the dreaded stomach flu during Christmas. But, alas all the hand washing and sanitizing couldn’t save us. LOL At least we held out till after the Christmas festivities and for that I am grateful.
I realize the Blog has been pretty quiet for a while, but you all kept me busy this fall. And, I have loved every minute of it! I have loved snuggling sweet babies, chasing your toddlers all while telling funny jokes and making up silly words for all the other youngsters. You all have warmed my heart with your generous compliments and encouraging messages. You have no idea what each of you have meant to me this past year.
I have been updating the website and preparing for 2018 while home with a sick little girl and I have to tell you, it caused me to really stop and thank God. I am overwhelmed with how many faces I captured and how many events I was able to be a part of. You might think to yourself “well Lindsay, it’s us who should thank you.” And I would reply with “NO!! It is me who needs to thank you!!”
THANK YOU!!!! Thank you for allowing me to chase my dream. Thank you for trusting me to capture each stage of your sweet babies first year. Thank you for allowing us to document
each moment of your wedding day so that you can relive those sweet memories for the rest of your life. Thank you for joining me and believing in the magic of Unicorns and Santa Claus. It is because of you all and your sweet families that I will continue to drive this business forward and perfect my craft so that I can give you the best of me!!!
2017 was an amazing year... we held our first ever Unicorn sessions, I was asked to photograph my first birth (I LOVED IT!!!! What a miracle!) I was busier than ever this fall with lovely families and fun Christmas styled shoots and now I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for Lindsay Hodges Photography!!!
I am thrilled, honored and genuinely excited to see you this coming year!!! I love watching your families grow and change. I do not want to just be Lindsay the “photographer” I desire a deeper relationship with you and your family so that I can capture who you are.
One of my “resolutions” if you will for the business in 2018 is really going to be for you all... I want you all to have the full experience when you book me for a session. I don’t want the fun
to stop when the session is over. I want to begin the process of creating heirloom art work for your homes and signature books that convey the love in your home sitting on your coff ee table. Why let all these precious moments sit on a computer where you see them once a year or less?? Sharing on social media and with family and friends is so important, but what is more important is your family’s legacy. I want these to be a constant reminder to you of why you do what you do every day. Because I believe our “why” is what drives us. On those hard days when the kids aren’t cooperating or work has you down and you just want to throw in the
towel, I want you to catch a glimpse of YOUR family as you walk through your home. I want those memories, the love and laughter to be there in your home, on your desk, and in your office to remind you that it is all worth it. Because let’s be honest.... We all have those moments. Life can be so hard and demanding. It can feel as if it is sucking you dry. This year remember your why ... your loved ones, your friends, your happiest memories. I believe that God and happy thoughts are what get us through those really hard days.
Here’s to you and your families creating the most wonderful memories and experiences in 2018!!!
Happy New Year from my family to yours!!!!!
