I can’t believe that it’s been nine years since I took the plunge and stated my own business, Britton Images Photography. Sometimes I have wondered if maybe I was a bit crazy to take on such a responsibility but mostly I feel grateful and blessed to be doing something I love; open a photography studio here in Windsor. How many people go through life with a dream in their heart without the opportunity of having to live that dream? From my experience not enough. Dreams are the motivators of life! And “dreams” carved in wood can be found sitting atop of my tv in the sitting area of my studio. It reminds me to always keep going. At the same time I hope it inspires the many couples who I meet about wedding photography because their blooming love is the foundation for which their dreams will hopefully come true.
The best part of running my own business is meeting all the different people that seek me out to document through my eyes their event , business, special day or family. Many of these people have become friends….some closer than others but nevertheless all very special to me. This business is all about relationships ….some will come , some will go but all will be remembered with a great deal of gratitude.
As an artist I get to experiment and grow in my field by attending photography conventions, workshops and just playing around on my own. My biggest dream is to shoot and travel so now I’m working on destination weddings to add to my portfolio.
I thank all my supporters through these years & look forward with anticipation to many more years of good fortune. I’m celebrating by throwing a holiday/anniversary party at Per Bacco Restaurant on Ottawa Street tomorrow night from 6-9pm. Looks like about 70 people will help me celebrate. I’m so excited! Per Bacco will be putting out some finger foods, there will be wine and of course a fantastic cake from Renee’s Fine Cakes. Hope to get some pics to post on the blog. See you soon.
