When our family moved to Arizona – I realized we were living in a “whole new world.” Leaving our gorgeous studio in Dillon was especially difficult, but I wasn’t sure I wanted to start all over again – with business, I mean. In Montana, God had given me this amazing gift to be able to be home with the kids and bring in a little extra income. He continued to bring in clients and my business continued to grow. When we moved to Arizona, I knew that everyone in our family would need time – time to get used to this new place, time to meet friends, time to find a church, time to find schools . . . we would need time to adjust.
I didn’t know how I would be able to do it all – market and build a new business, continue to provide income for our family, and give everyone the time we ALL needed – to adjust. God is so faithful, though, and he introduced me to a woman, whom had a new idea for business. She opened a studio in which photographers could maintain their own business, but begin to collaborate with other photographers of different specialties.
Susan, Everardo, and Photo Fusion Studio have been the answer I needed to keep Patchwork Photography moving forward but allowing for time . . . to take it a bit slower.
We have been here in Arizona for almost three years. It seems so hard to even fathom. Three years have gone by in a flash! Shortly after I moved into Photo Fusion in Old Town Scottsdale, I met an amazing young couple whom had just had their first baby. They have a dog grooming boutique just around the corner from the studio. If you didn’t know, Oh My Dog, is Scottsdale’s top dog destination!!! 🙂
Anyway, I met this wonderful couple, Bruce and Jackie, when their little one was just three months, and they didn’t want to miss ONE MOMENT! Well, Brady just turned one a few months ago, and I wanted to share a few images from his first year here with him mom and dad. Can’t even believe it’s been a year . . .
Enjoy these images . . . they are an amazing family.
