Reflecting on a Year of Growth and Development as a family and branding photographer.

In 2022, I

  • created family heirlooms and documented priceless memories.
  • helped business owners successfully brand themselves and their businesses, increasing visibility and attracting new clients.
  • photographed the cover of the Risk and Insurance Magazine for their Jan/Feb issue.
  • was interviewed twice by Marilyn Solanke Napoleon for the In-finite Light Zone podcast interviews on Inspiration and Legacy.
  • started offering high-quality photo albums and wall art to my clients.
  • improved my photo restoration skills.
  • donated to plant 100+ trees worldwide through my partnership with One Tree Planted.
  • read many books about business and self-improvement to provide better service every day.

Some of the highlights of my personal life:

  • visited my family after almost three years of not seeing them because of Covid.
  • finally photographed Ilen Maria.
  • got family photos done!
  • traveled to Europe with my best friend. It was the best time of my life, and I need to do it again, with more time!
  • met my soul sister Didem in her hometown of Hekelingen, The Netherlands, after nine years of online friendship.

What a great year!

I can't wait to see what 2023 has in store for Odette Photo+Art!
