Although many of you might have already heard, it is with a happy and sad heart that I give you the news that MSP’s wonderful assistant and second shooter, Loren, will be moving to LA :) She is an incredibly talented artist with a passion not only for photography but for fashion… and in every way, she defines trendiness and all things stylish :) So it was only fitting that an amazing company in Los Angeles would offer her the internship of a lifetime directly involved in fashion and public relations! This opportunity will, without a doubt, open so many doors for her and her sweet hubby, Caleb – and I couldn’t be happier for the two of them!! This past year with Loren has been an awesome one – I feel so blessed to have met her :) She has been a wonderful addition to Mustard Seed, creating some of the most gorgeous images I have ever seen! And personally – we have become great friends :) I cherish her so much, and while it makes me sad (sniff, sniff!!) that she will be moving so far away, I know that this new journey she is headed on will be an amazing one! That… and I know that I’ll be visiting her at least once during her 3-month internship in LA! :)
While saying goodbye to Loren is bittersweet, it also brings great changes for Mustard Seed! I’m so happy to introduce our newest partner in crime, Jen – who joined us back in April to train directly underneath Loren at weddings and sessions! Jen is also a great artist, having studied photography over the last few years. You might actually recognize Jen, since she is a past client of Mustard Seed herself!! Jen and her hubby, Adam, joined us twice over the last year for some of my favorite sessions of all time: their Hill Country Session from last summer, and their Powder Paint Session from late last year! She is a lover of all things creative, from sewing to just about every DIY project you can imagine – she’s had her hands in just about anything crafty! Not only did she design Mustard Seed’s packaging (which I promise I’ll do a blog post on in the future!) – she also inspired a design change for my entire brand :) Her creativity and enthusiasm is so contagious, I couldn’t be happier to have her on the team! In her past life, she taught for 9 years before deciding to embark on this new adventure with Mustard Seed – she brings with her a fresh pair of eyes and an inspired creativity! :) I can’t wait for you all to meet her in person if you haven’t already – you are sure to love her instantly!
There’s Loren (above) capturing Jen nearly a year ago! Who would have thought that all of our paths would have intertwined the way they have now :) It warms my heart thinking about it!
I hope you’ll join me in welcoming Jen to our little MSP family :) And also in wishing Loren the biggest congratulations and the best of luck in her new venture! :) Every year, I feel more and more blessed to have this life… this company… blessed for the people I get to meet, and especially for the people that I get to work beside – it makes our job so much fun and keeps a smile on our faces! I know this year will without a doubt be as good as the last – and I can’t wait to see where Mustard Seed is in another year!
Be safe, Lolo :) We’ll miss you! ♥
