Happy Birthday to the Ground. Blog... I meant blog.

"I am Jessi D. I'm a wife, a mom, a photographer and a poor speller."

That was my introduction a year ago. Can you even believe how much has happened in a year? I recently read the perfect quote for the birthday blog post...

On that note, some thank you's.

John - If I were to make a list of things to thank you for it would never end. And that.. would be on the list too. Today I'll say thanks for accepting the position of CIO and all the responsibility that comes along with it. You deserve a raise for sure :)

Alisa - Thank you for taking a chance and letting me shoot my first wedding with you. Thank you for your honest feedback after that wedding too! I could not have imagined a better mentor and I'm so happy we've become friends. You have not only made me a better photographer, but a better person.

Cason - Thanks for introducing me to CreativeLive and to Meredith.

Meredith - Thanks for letting me shoot with you as well. Hearing you call me a 'rock star' was definitely a highlight of the year :)

Zach and Jody - Your workshop opened my eyes to all the possibilities ahead of me. Y'all are a daily source of inspiration for my life and my business.

Mom - Thanks for babysitting at such odd hours :) "Sure I'll be there at 7:00am. No problem"

Katheryn, Augustine, Becca, Anna, Jeri, Rachel, Jill, April - Thank you for all the sweet comments and support this year. You'll never know how much it has meant to me. Love Y'all!!

Everyone else - Thank you so much for reading my blog and tagging along on this journey with me. I'm going to need all of you to reach the dreams I've been dreaming :)


  1. Thank you for having faith in me to be the CIO.

  2. I love you and couldn't be more proud to call you my friend!


  3. This made me tear up! So thankful for you and so excited to see what the future holds for your business. I am so glad we are friends too ;D

  4. Jessi D - You have always had a spark. There is something about you that people gravitate toward. You're different - and the beauty of it is that you are not afraid to be different. That's what makes you special! You have a great mind and I know you will achieve great things! I love you and looking forward to many amazing photos from you! Hugz, Anna
