2018 was a year of expansiveness as it's been one of the most gratifying and busiest season yet engaging in 150 photographic exchanges ranging from weddings, engagements, branding portraits for Nordstroms, anniversaries, families, lifestyle portraits, you name it.
The expansiveness comes into play as these sessions have been sprinkled with moving to
San Clemente, winning wedding industry awards, announcing our pregnancy, attended a life enhancing women’s retreat, becoming a corporation, documenting for Nordstrom’s,
hosting ASP’s first ever Cultural Art Show, sharing instagram/facebook lives,
celebrating my 31st birthday, traveling, road-tripping, hiking, spreading my grandfathers ashes, supporting my father-in-law’s immigration to the United States, expanding on development days, falling deeper in love with my husband,
ah, I could keep going with all the goodness that life has presented itself as.
Each moment, every interaction, every exchange, every client that became a friend, all the smiles that have been shared, every moment of overwhelming love and gratitude, has filled my soul! Thank you to my amazing husband who constantly supports the woman and business owner I strive to be everyday. Thank you to ALL my friends and family for being you and creating space for me to be me. Thank you to all the amazing souls, families, couples, empowering individuals and partners for your support, for your trust, for your belief in my passion of a profession, in allowing me to document your light and share it with the world!
Thank you to all those that continue to support, encourage, inspire, uplift, challenge and enhance this beautiful journey called life! I am grateful for each and everyone of you!
Cheers to an incredible 2019!
Much love, Ashley Strong Smith
