Happy New Year!

I have some very exciting news to share with everyone. Drumroll please…

Shachmut Photography is officially open for business!!!!!

If you would have told me – 5 years ago that I would be opening a photography business one day, I would have assured you that would not be the case.

There are a lot of things I’ve “become” in life that I maybe didn’t always anticipate. A black belt, a school psychologist, prom queen (yep, tiara and all, ha!), even a mother. But, small business owner? It’s not something that I really ever considered.

Until last year.

In January of 2013, I started thinking about it. Abstractly. I did a little research, made pretend plans in my head. Then, I had a baby and everything got put on hold. But, by the time fall rolled around, I was over my head in sessions and loving it. That sealed the deal – I needed to give this a shot.

So, I got my paper work together, dotted my i’s and crossed by t’s and VOILA. I got a business license – and officially opened my doors as of 1/1/14

I’m over the moon about it. Really.

I have some big ideas for this year. I’m excited to meet new clients, to grow in my own photography, to continue to learn and challenge myself, and to capture beautiful moments for anyone that will have me.

Thank you to everyone who has encouraged me thus far. The fun has just begun!


Here is a quick iPhone shot I had somebody take of me and the girls the day we got our license.  It just so happened to be on my birthday!  Pretty great present, right?
