A little over 6 years ago, when my son was just a few months old, my husband bought me a Canon Rebel T2i so I could capture our growing boy. I taught myself how to shoot in manual, and slowly got better and better with the camera. Soon I was capturing my friends and their families. A friend and fellow photographer asked me to second shoot her niece’s wedding. That wedding gave me the courage to start my photography business.
I have watched families of my clients grow, capturing some of their sweetest moments and I am grateful for the experience. As with every chapter, or season of life, there comes a point when it comes to an end, and for me that season is now.
For those that don’t know me personally, I have worked a full time job while growing my photography business. Over the last year, I have taken even less clients than years past to spend more time with my family. I savored that time with my family but I’ll admit something. I’m greedy. I’m selfish. I want more. More time. More time doing other activities that I love. I want to travel more. Hike more. Garden more. Continue on the healthy lifestyle I have been on. I want to become more involved with my son’s school life, and I want to learn new hobbies. Photography is a huge part of my life and I will continue to document my life and the life of my family.
But at this point in my life, I need to be greedy and selfish with my time and so it’s a bittersweet decision but I’ve decided to close the client session side of my business.
I will not be quitting photography. It is too ingrained in my heart and soul. If you follow me on Facebook, you noticed I changed the name of my page from Hart’s Desire Photography to Sarah Hart Morgan, Photographer. Since I am closing the client side of my business, it seemed only fitting to close the name and switch to my name since I’ll be shooting only personal work.
I will not be posting to this blog anymore. The blog will expire later in the year. If you wish to follow my documentary, stock, and fine art portfolios, you can find me on my new site- sarahhartmorgan.com
I will be opening a new online store to sell my affordable Fine Art prints which you’ll be able to find via my new site.
Thank you to everyone who supported and believed in me over the last 6 years. I wouldn’t be where I am today without each and every one of you and the love you’ve shown for me and my work.
