Life is full of changes. New seasons bring new opportunities. At MHP we live life in the fast lane. We zip, zag and zoom. Along the way we enjoy each turn this journey takes. We’ve got a pretty amazing team of photographers at MHP. We care about each other, we care about our clients and we care about living lives that make a difference. When we find someone we connect with, we don’t like to let them go. That’s exactly what happened in 2010 when a brown headed college student entered our studio for an 8 week internship. Her name was Renee and in just 8 weeks she entwined herself around our teams heart. At the end of Renee’s internship, I offered her a job as a photographer at MHP. After much discussion, she turned me down but not because she didn’t want the job. She had plans to move home to Kansas and felt that was where she needed to be. Fast forward a few years, Renee met the love of her life here in the Carolinas, married him and found herself calling NC home once again.
It does not feel like Renee every really left MHP. We’ve kept in touch! You might recognize her, MHP photographed her wedding, Lindsey was even a bridesmaid in her wedding and she’s been second shooting with us for a little while now!
This turn in Renee’s journey brought her back to MHP and the timing could not have been better. Claire informed me of some changes coming in her life, one of which includes a new baby next March and another which included going in a different direction with her career, not photography related at all. Immediately Renee came to mind and a few staff meetings and one phone call later she said yes!
I guess you could say that this story goes to show that even when something you really want doesn’t work out, it does not mean the opportunity is gone forever. If you play your cards right and wait for the opportunity to rise again, it just might and when it does… grab it and don’t look back! So that’s what we are doing folks… welcome Renee to our team! We are running full speed ahead, in fact she and Lindsey already have weddings booked for 2014!
Renee is currently living in the Highpoint/Greensboro area with plans to relocate to Wilmington next year. Renee is available for portraits in Greensboro, Highpoint, and Wilmington. Although Renee’s base for weddings will be Wilmington, NC she can be booked worldwide. At MHP we love to travel and we are excited for this new adventure!
