You may or may not have noticed that on my end of year round up I seemed to forget to say thank you to one very important person, it wasn’t an accident. I had always planned to post this, I just needed an image to go along with it. Thankfully she finally let me take some of her.
Sarah would be the first to tell you that I can be a pretty soppy soul at times and she is probably reading this and cringing. She isn’t a fan of being the centre of attention, but for this moment I need to put her right in the centre and say a massive thank you.
Again, you may already know that for the last 2 years I have been running my photography business while working full time, in just a few weeks that will all change when I finish my job to concentrate on photography full time. That has only been possible because of Sarah.
In 2014 she edited 35 weddings and 21 engagement shoots, to give you an idea of just how much work that is she has looked at over 70,000 images and individually edited around 20,000! She also worked her “day job” 3 days a week as well as being a Mum, Wife and not to mention for the past 8 months she has been growing another person inside of her.
It’s safe to say she is my hero and without her this business would not exist. She is my support and my biggest critic, she gives me the confidence I need to keep going even on the worst days and every day I feel lucky she is next to me.
It’s called Matt Willis Photography but that only tells half the story, at times I’ve said that I’m going to rename it to include her as well. Her response sums up the exact reason she is so special… “No way, this is your Mess” 🙂
Here’s to more adventures together this year… thank you. X
