Three months ago, my husband and I sat on those steps right there and talked about the future. Our future, my future and the future of Calla Evans Photography. I have been photographing weddings for 10 years. 10 years! My clients are amazing, the people I work with and lean on are amazing and I’ve been blessed with a business that keeps growing year after year. So why did I feel like there was something else I needed to be doing? Something more?
Birth photographer is my more. I am passionate about telling birth stories, about normalizing birth and celebrating women through the sharing of birth images. And after two years of trying to balance both wedding and birth work I have decided to no longer accept wedding clients and focus solely on birth and lifestyle portrait clients. I launched a new www.callaevansphotography.com site a few days ago and I love it. It exactly encapsulates everything I want Calla Evans Photography to be.
I am still very much looking forward to the handful of weddings I have booked this summer and I hope that my wedding clients will continue to book me for lifestyle portrait sessions and birth photography.
I am so very grateful to my clients who have followed me on this journey. To my wedding clients who have invited me into their homes for family sessions once the wedding was over and their families grew. To my birth clients for being my early adopters and having me back again and again. Thank you thank you thank you. I hope you will keep spreading the word about birth photography and I look forward to more sessions, be they birth or family, in the future.
