My Year in Photography - 2018 by Christian Hernandez

I never set goals. Believe me - at the beginning of the year, nor at any other point in the year do I set goals. But since I now had time to think about what I wanted the rest of my year to look like, I set some goals for my business back in May. Since then, I’m surprised at how many of those I’ve been fortunate to have achieved. By God’s grace and provision, and with the support of my family and friends, I have thankfully been able to check several of those off my list. Here are 4 that I’m really proud of.

In addition to weddings, one other type of photography I’ve been doing more of lately is family photography.

Making Pottery at Porch Pottery by Christian Hernandez

I had been wanting to take a pottery class for a while, so before I moved back to Florida, I purchased a Groupon for a 2-hour pottery class that included making pottery on a wheel. The Groupon was for 4 people, so it was perfect for my family and I. The only time I had done anything with pottery was in 5th grade and I don't remember a lot of it, so I thought why not try it out for fun?
