LAUNCH RESPONSE & GIVEAWAY

Family

Wow! I cannot even begin to express to you have excited I am. You have humbled me with your kind words and left my heart overflowing with joy. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Monday just before we launched I was talking with my website designer and sweet friend, Jamie Clauss. I was telling her I wasn’t sure if I was going to pee my pants or cry. I was excited but I was also terrifed (I’m being real, y’all). So much so that I as soon as I clicked the button to go live I got in my car, drove 45 minutes, and met up with some of the most amazing photographers here in the PNW. I refused to look to see what was going on online and prayed that nothing broke. Not because I wasn’t confident, but mostly because I just needed to breathe. Yes, this is “just” a website. Yes, I can hit the delete button. Yes, I have control over it. BUT….for me, this solidified Laura Ryan Photography. This website is more than just a way to access my business, it is where I will share your stories (and sometimes mine), and I do not take that lightly.

So thank you, again. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for choosing me to capture your family’s story. Thank you for believing in Laura Ryan Photography. Thank you for taking a leap of faith and joining me on this journey.

My sweet husband: thank you will never be enough. Your encouragement and belief in me allowed me to take a dream and ideal and turn it into our reality. I wouldn’t want to embark on this journey with anyone else. I love you, always.

Jamie Clauss:  you are an exceptionally talented photographer, brilliant designer, and one amazing woman and friend. Thank you for being patient with me, for knowing how to navigate my maze of a mind and ideas, and for believing in me when I wasn’t quite sure how to believe in myself. I couldn’t have done this without you.

It’s going to be a great adventure, my friends, and I am honored to take you along with me!

Ohhh…and what you have been waiting for….THE GIVEAWAY! The best news is there will be THREE winners: one here on the website, one on Facebook, and one on Instagram. You CAN enter all three, but lease be sure to read the rules for each entry because they are different.

    Love the website! So, so excited for you!

    (1) would LOVE to have pictures taken of our family after our baby girl arrives to give as Christmas gifts to family this year 🙂

    (2) don’t feel like we’re that interesting, but we’ve moved 3 times in our 3 years of marriage, which is unique, and we just love any “normal,” “quiet” time at home together.

    Congratulations! I have been following your Facebook page for a few months and I absolutely love your work! You are truly talented! I would love to do a family session. Something interesting about my husband and I is that we met playing Call of Duty on XBox live! I am not a gamer but that one day I was bored and decided to play my brother’s game. I’m so glad I did! : )
