It is with a heavy heart (cause darn! I love you, Texas) that I announce we are moving to Tulsa, Oklahoma. It's something that I've been wanting to do for a while now but more so it's something that I know I'm suppose to do. When you're following God--well that's just it. You are following. Will I miss Texas? Oh yes. Will I miss the Valley? To be sure. I LOVE my clients here, my dad and sister, my dear friends, my close cousins, my church, the big Texas sky, Friday Night Football, the smell of Texas BBQ on Saturday evenings, HEB, breakfast tacos anywhere, the beach --ooh gosh the beach!!--and the list goes on and on. I never and the thought still has never crossed my mind "I want to get out of the Valley", because I just love and appreciate it very much. So I must not linger too long on this list. :)
With that said, on to the next thing. Will I have"J Lori Photography" there? Absolutely! I LOVE what I do. The thought of not having smiling faces to photograph just isn't an option. Which brings me to another important announcement!! Once I make the move my main focus will shift to photographing newborns/maternity, babies, toddlers, kids, teens, high school seniors, families and adults. Engagement and wedding photography will also be available but limited. No longer "available for every photography need". That's not me. Plus, I don't think it's fair to give someone my second best because it's not what I specialize in. I'm very excited about this decision. It's one that I've been wanting to make for a while. :) My goal right now is to finish shooting August sessions, a wedding, pack and getting us moved and settled. I will be looking for a job in graphic design/print or something within that field. Once I get that settled, I'll get started on J Lori Photography in Tulsa.
To all my clients, thank you from the bottom of my heart for selecting me as your photographer. I feel so honored to have captured two loves coming together as one and photographing beautiful people.
To my blog readers -- thank you for coming along for the ride with me. I plan to document our adventures with the sweet babies and children of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
And because a photography blog with out a photo just doesn't make sense....here's a sneak peek of Javier & Gabriela portrait session celebrating their 1st anniversary.
I couldn't decide which one I like best, so I posted both :)
