It seems crazy to me that I’m posting my annual goals/updates blog, especially since I don’t think I did one in 2021! Last year was a year of transition for our family and it looks like 2022 will be a year of transitions for Samantha Ludlow Photography. Today I’m excited to share more of my vision for this year and what you can expect from me moving forward!
Let’s start with some reflection. 2021 brought us many good things – here are just a few!
This past year really helped me to hone in on my priorities both as a business owner and as a wife/mother. With these priorities in mind, I’ve decided that 2022 will be my last wedding season, at least for now. Instead, I’ll be focusing my time on photographing families! I will always love capturing love stories, and I believe that the love shared on a wedding day is just the beginning of a lifetime of love and family.
My love of photography was born out of the desire to capture the love and joy of family and motherhood. This year I’m going back to those roots. My hope is that doing so will help me to better capture these memories for your families while also having more time to spend with mine!
So what will this transition look like? Here’s a sneak peek!
While I won’t be taking on new wedding clients through Samantha Ludlow Photography, I will be associate shooting for two other local photographers, Emily Netti Photography and Rebecca Sheets Photography. This means that I will still be the one photographing the wedding, but Emily or Rebecca would handle the planning, client communication, and editing. If you have been dreaming of having me photograph your big day, reach out to one of these two and ask for “Samantha!”
If you’ve made it this far, thanks for holding on till the end! The changes I just announced are big and they are a little bit scary. But I am certain that strong businesses are meant to grow and evolve! My ultimate desire this year is to go back to the roots of SLP and make them stronger. I can’t wait to connect with your families and witness more of life’s everyday moments with you!
