This year started with so many uncertainties. Fear of what was next and lack of self confidence that I could be anything different. See my heart has always been in photography. Capturing your moments has been my honor these past years and will always continue to be. But something shifted in my heart. I didn’t want to leave my family on the weekend for photoshoots. I didn’t want to miss soccer games because of weddings on Saturdays and I missed reading books to my girls before bed because I was up late editing. It wasn’t that I wanted to quit working, I just needed balance. Fast forward a few months and an opportunity came to me from an amazing friend @abbeykyhl. It was an answer to months of prayers and something I’ll never fully feel worthy of. I was given an opportunity to work with @Freedomedits on their marketing team and its been one of the most fulfilling and exciting experiences ever. I get to work with the most amazing team that @ryanwelchweddings and @jacobmccarthyuk have built. They are fun and caring and so gracious with me. They are supportive and encouraging and crazy smart in business and not only that but because of them I now am working with @kissbooks as well where I get a front row seat to the vision and legacy that @shaunaustin is creating. It’s truly a dream come true! I am so undeserving of these blessings in my life. It’s something I didn’t feel comfortable talking about because every day I woke up thinking it was too good to be true! Even though I have mountains to climb and I’ll never stop wanting to be better, learn and grow… I am so freakin excited for what 2020 has in store! Now, I am NOT fully hanging up my camera in 2020. But I am going to have limited availability. I’m going to shoot when the timing is right. I never want to walk away from what I have built, from the clients that have turned into family. But I am going to be better about balance. Allowing myself the time to take care of me and my family. And making sure that they are number one and not my business. While this page may be pretty quiet in 2020, I’d love for you to follow along on my personal page @nicolebrown224 where I’ll be posting more! xoxo N 😘
I made her 😉
When they want to be a group Halloween costume at school and they tell me Can you make us a Hydroflask shirt?!” I am all about it! Give me a craft night and a theme and I’m like 🎉🌟🎉🙋🏽♀️🙋🏽♀️
So happy for my Brother and Sister in law! It was an honor to photograph their wedding. I love you both so much!
