The End

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.

Thank you.

Book Your Session Now!

In an attempt to keep a balance in life and to help me grow as an artist, I’ve decided to limit the number of days I am open for sessions.  I work full-time in addition to photography and enjoy MANY extra curricular activities that all helps keep the creative juices flowing and I’ve learned over the last year that the balance is key to keeping me inspired. As of right now, I don’t have a set schedule, I will be making it up as I go as my family is #1 and it has to work around them. 

My next scheduled session dates are June 6 & 7.  If you have been thinking of scheduling a session with me; I would encourage you to do it now as I’m thinking this will be it until the weather starts to cool in the fall.

I am willing to travel a bit on these dates in an effort to keep everyone’s sessions unique to their families and personalities.

These dates are open to just about everyone: families, seniors, children, couples, and I might be able to squeeze in a boudoir session as well!

Thanks to all my existing clients and to those new who have stuck with me during this transition. I do believe that this new schedule will help me to grow as an artist in new avenues that I wish to explore and will also benefit my clients in their authentic images I am able to capture for them.

*if these June dates don’t work for your and/or you are interested in booking in the fall please be sure to send me an email at hartsdesire@hotmail.com and to like my Facebook page as I will open my book up to those individuals first before I announce it on Facebook.

Now Booking

As the 2013 season winds down I’d like to take a moment to say THANK YOU to all of you. What a GREAT year it has been! I never would’ve thought 2 years ago that I would be doing what I’m doing. I love working with my clients. Getting to know you, reconnecting with old friends, getting to be a part of your family even if it’s just for a short amount of time. I would never be able to write down in words what a wonderful year it has been for me and my business. How humbled and grateful I feel for all of you. So THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

 

This isn’t an end of the year post, I still have a few sessions to blog before the end of the year but know that I am winding things down. Wrapping a few big projects up, working on new and exciting projects and opportunities I hope to share in the coming months.

 

I’m also currently booking for 2014! I know it seems crazy, but really, the new year is only 1 1/2 months away! Crazy…anyway, it’s never to soon to get your family, maternity, newborn, senior, boudoir, or lifestyle session booked. Email me: hartsdesire@hotmail.com
