Last year, I decided to embark on a personal and professional journey by taking more risks and stepping outside of my comfort zone. It's been about 6 months into it and I must say that it's been a tremendous learning and growing experience! However, I still have a ways to go before I reach the goals I've set for myself. Becoming a better photographer and business person is one goal I will always be pursuing! My boys have inspired me so much- they are one of the main reasons I do what I do and want to grow this crazy dream of mine. I'm still in disbelief that I get to do what I love and provide for my family!

These transitions have brought about some beautiful opportunities - I've been published in two separate magazines, my business has grown 25% since the year before, I've worked with some incredible professionals at the top of their game and traveled to a new and exciting place I've always wanted to go- Washington, DC! There is still more work to be done. I have so many things up my sleeve!

In the next few months, here are a few of the changes you'll be seeing:

  • New Packages. High quality, stunning prints to proudly show everyone! Digital packages will still be available but I will be offering more matted, framed and speciality options. I will also have a new price list that will be offering albums, canvas and bamboo.
  • Office re-do! The studio will be opening closer to the end of this year but I will also be updating my office for more consults and pick ups.
  • Personal Project. I have a personal project I've been working on lately and hope to have finished in a few months that I think will be a game changer! It will be a part of Rebecca J. Imagery as well, but more on that later.

And on another note, I wanted to address the new law that has come about recently in MS. I am actually a MS resident, but the majority of all my work is in Memphis. However, I do not discriminate against anyone who would like to work with RJI. It's none of my business what your preferences are and the Lord I serve taught me to love all of my brothers and sisters just as He loved us. So if you would like to work with me or not, that is up to you. It wouldn't right in my opinion to turn away potential clients based on something that has nothing to do with me. The only way I would refuse to work with someone is if they were rude, violent, disrespectful or unethical. I do think we all need to respect one another's beliefs, and realize the importance of loving and serving one another. End of rant!

Remember, Spring Minis are this weekend and next weekend! Schedule yours today!
