Happy Thanksgiving! and what I've been up to...

Happy, Happy, HAPPIEST of Thanksgivings to YOU dear readers!!!

I just want to thank all of you for your precious emails, for checking on me, and for reminding me that you're still here, wondering what I'm up to! What a bunch of sweeties you all are!! I just looked back and tomorrow it will be three months since I've posted on this here blog, that went by super fast!!! I've been a busy bee! I have started watching my niece three days a week so that my sister could return to work. I've also been extremely blessed to start a photography business which has taken a lot more time researching, planning, etc. than I could've ever dreamed. It's a complete and total GIFT from the Lord!! He has blessed me and people continue to call me for appointments and I'm incredibly grateful and humbled! I've never worked so hard in my life because my goal is to put out stellar work so I'm constantly pushing myself to learn more and more! Obviously I want every person who believes in me and supports me to be 150 percent happy with their photos, which is the goal every time! I guess I've been so absorbed in my new career that I neglected this little corner of my world. Hee hee, that feels so GOOD to say, "my career!" It makes me GIDDY!!! I have always heard the saying, "do what you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life." That quote was always one of those things that sounded to good to be true, yet here I am! Working harder than ever and loving every minute! I've had the sweetest clients, some of which I now call friends! Here is a small sampling of some of my favorite photos; it was so hard to choose!

I guess you could say that I've got a ton to be grateful for this Thanksgiving!! I feel incredibly blessed and overjoyed to be doing what I do! Thank you so much for checking in, each and every one of you!! You're precious to me!!! If you want to see more of Lissa Whitlock Photography click HERE!
