Tuesday morning Peoria greetings to one and all!
Jan and I have a big announcement to make this morning. As of December 14th of this year, we are retiring! Yes, after 29 years of self-employment, it’s time for us to happily ride off into the sunset! It’s been a great ride and we feel incredibly blessed for all of the great clients that we have worked with all of these years and all of the great photo shoots that we have been a part of since April of 1990! There have been so many friendships that have been made throughout the years and so many great road trips around the United States and the world, as well!
You’re probably thinking, why we are we doing this now? Well, we love what we do, but we have so many other things that we want to do and it’s time to start doing them. Jan creates jewelry and has been working for me these past four years and in that time, she’s had to put aside her love of jewelry making because we are on the road so much. I love to hike and ride my bike and we both love to get out and shoot nature photography and are really looking forward to exploring the United States and all of the National Parks that we have here.
One of the things that we are really proud of is that we are leaving on our terms and not being forced out by a company. For those of us over 50 years old, we’ve seen more and more of our friends being forced out of the jobs that they have had, before they were ready to retire. So we take great pride in the fact that we are controlling our own future.
Thanks again, to all of our great clients over the past 29 years, for letting us do what we so love to do and supporting us as you have, all of these years! We couldn’t have done it without you!!!
Have a great rest of the week and a wonderful Thanksgiving next week, too!
Kev and Jan
