The Journey So Far

Looking back, the Farrah of 2010 (yes that's me below!) with her first DSLR camera, snapping photos at every opportunity, would be absolutely over the moon about where we've ended up. It was all about following those dreams, even when they seemed just a bit out of reach, and man, was it scary sometimes. But here we are, having turned a burning passion for photography into something real – a flourishing business that's all about capturing those fleeting moments and sharing stories, one click at a time.

I've got to say, this journey has been everything but easy. It's been about pushing through, soaking up every bit of knowledge like a sponge, and stretching my creative muscles further than I ever thought possible. And let's not forget about the courage it took to put myself and my work out there for the world to see. That part? Absolutely terrifying.

But every late night, every learning curve, and every little (and big) success along the way has been so worth it. My brand isn't just a reflection of my skills with a camera; it's a testament to sticking to your guns, embracing your creativity, and never giving up, no matter the odds. To think that the Farrah who once was just figuring out her first camera would one day lead a photography business others look up to? It's pretty wild.

I'm beyond thankful for every photo shoot, every client's smile, and every goal I've ticked off my list. It's a reminder that dreams don't just have to be dreams if you're willing to chase them with everything you've got. So here's to that journey, from a shy beginner with a big dream to where I stand today. Farrah of 2010, we made it, and it's more amazing than we ever imagined.

On to the next adventure!
