2012 Fall Photography Re-Cap

I was at a friend of a friend's house earlier this week and, in my typically fashion, I started scanning the walls for photographs. I love seeing what a family cherishes, what memories they hold dear and what moments they choose to celebrate through the printed artifact. And then I hit jackpot... the Christmas Card display. This particular family had a TON of friends apparently, because their display was overflowing with images and collages of happy families, donning everything from scarfs and sweaters to full on camo. And up on the wall, proudly displayed were some of the very families I had the joy to photograph this fall season. It was such a treat to see how they took our images and made them into something uniquely them in a holiday card display. Bravo, my families (yes, I am taking ownership of you and am beaming with pride at your creativeness). I think I should include a clause in my contract that insists each client mails me a holiday card. Maybe next year.

This year was a big one for Caroline Maxcy Photography. Going into my second full year in central Florida as a full time photographer my business tripled. Surrounded by friends and family, Highlands County has been a truly extraordinary place to grow a business. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to all my clients and friends! All of this has been through word of mouth, might I add, this girl has done the bare minimum on marking and advertising (shame on me, but this will be changing in the new year. Stay posted.) Needless to say, I have realized that my lack in blog posting leaves the general public completely in the dark as to my going ons. But more devastating (for lack of a less dramatic word) is the fact that I have been incredibly blessed beyond belief this fall photo season with the people, places and beautifulness I have been able to view through my lens and I haven't shared a single image with you all. You are missing out! So without further adieu I present to you Caroline Maxcy Photography's fall photo clients in all their gloriousness. This, of course, is a painstakingly narrowed down version of each session. And if you have ever been a client of mine you know how hard this is for me, the one who celebrates every. single. detail. And thus ends up handing you a photo disc with double the number of images stated in the contract. I can't decide if it is a blessing or a curse.

Thank you for inviting me into your lives this year and allowing me to tell a little glimpse of your story.

The Davis Family

About Caroline

I decided my destiny was to be an artist at age five when I won an honorable mention in a art competition in kindergarten. Ever since then I have been following a dream that has manifested itself in a variety of rewarding and delightful ways. I have practiced in the field of graphic design for over 8 years and recently acquired my Masters in Graphic Design at NC State University in Raleigh, NC (check out my design portfolio by clicking here if you like). But a passion that has stuck with me ever since I got my hands on my first Nikon camera in my undergraduate art education at Florida State University is photography. The instruction I received there was but a seed in what would develop over the next years of my life. Recently I have begun photographing people in their celebrations of life and could not feel any more blessed to be a part of capturing those memories.

About This Blog

A great american writer once wrote, "If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world, and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan my day." EB White penned the thoughts of my own heart. One part of me is a graphic designer working to challenge the world, seeking out problems and striving to create avenues for change. The other part is seeking out the beauties of the world and working to capture them in our memories forever through photography. This is what you will find here. Me enjoying the world. I have been truly fortunate to photograph such incredible people at truly beautiful moments in life. I can only hope that the images I've collected will forever keep alive those thoughts and emotions that swelled in their hearts and minds that day.
