It is with mixed emotions that I write this letter. I am so sad to be leaving Athens and all the wonderful relationships I’ve built the past 10+ years here (thank goodness for Facebook!). But I am also incredibly excited for the opportunities that await my family in Texas. My husband has accepted a position with Texas A&M in College Station, TX and I couldn’t be more proud of him.
When I began this entrepreneurial journey 9 years ago, I never would have thought it would grow into what it did. Stylized Portraiture has been such a huge part of my life that I wonder what will become of ME without it. Along the way I was smart enough to align myself with someone who had just as much desire as I did…..Heather Lickliter Larkin! Heather is STILL WORKING and still taking pictures! Stylized Portraiture without me will continue to do great and wonderful things for the communities of Athens and Watkinsville. Heather will continue to do amazing things and provide you all with the lasting memories Stylized Portraiture has always provided.
Stylized Portraiture was never about me, it was about you all! Providing photos for families, giving back to the community, and extending a helping hand where needed! I am excited to see the great things to come in the more than capable and competent hands of Heather! Heather already has so many exciting things planned for the future of Stylized Portraiture and I cannot wait to watch them unfold!
I want to thank each of you for making my time in Athens at Stylized so rewarding! Watching your families grow, your children age, and your lives change has been such a humbling experience. For every photo I’ve given you, you all have given me something too. A glimpse into your lives that not everyone gets, an opportunity to preserve a moment in time that will go on to make your heart smile. You’ve given me the gift of getting to know you, showing me the real you, and trusting me to preserve it well. Thank you, thank you ALL!
