Eight years, friends!! Eight friggin’ awesome years I’ve poured my heart into this passion of mine. Eight years of challenges, tears, smiles, and growth. Eight years of meeting the most beautiful souls and photographing their love. Yep, today I’m celebrating eight years of trusting God and watching him curve my character, give me wisdom, and offer me grace, upon grace, upon grace as I have tried to do it all and failed miserably at times. Eight years of turning my dream into a reality, and eight years of learning, growing, and not accepting our circumstances, as “that’s good enough.”
A little over eight years ago I was working a corporate job during the day then sobbing at night while breastfeeding Addisyn because I missed my little girl so much and didn’t want the 9-5 anymore. I wanted to be home with my girl. I wanted to be present and see all the moments of her growing. It didn’t seem right that as her momma I was only with her a couple of hours a day. Steve recognized my pain, and without hesitation told me to quit my corporate job. The next day I put my two weeks in and the rest, as they say, is sweet, sweet history. When Addisyn was just six months old, I accepted my first paying client as Stacy Hart Photography. All I had in my camera bag was a $500 Nikon 3200 and my kit lens. Now I’m running a six-figure business!!! It didn’t fall in my lap, and for that reason, it hasn’t always been easy. In fact, I’ve wanted to throw in the towel a time or two, but by God’s good and loving grace, I’m here today sitting in my office across from a growing team listening to all the fun stuff we have going on. You may have seen that just last week we announced that Steve has officially joined the team!!! The second fun announcement is today. Wahoo! And it’s just for you, or the bride in your life!

Before I sign off, I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to you, my sweet clients, who are dear friends. Without you, I wouldn’t be here. Without your support in my business, your encouragement on social media and in our conversations, and our precious time together in front of my lens, I would not be here. You are the reason we keep going and I can’t help but get all emotional just thinking of all of you. I say we have a big 10 years anniversary reunion!! Who is in?
