Just putting together this post was a labor of love, whew! I really should keep up on my everyday blogging (business AND personal) than this wouldn’t have been such a hard task! I really need two of me ;). This recap is a good reminder of why I ended the holidays totally exhausted! But in a good way. 2016 was great!
Things I am proud of:
It’s hard not to compare yourself to others and wonder if you measure up. It’s hard to compete on social media, especially when as a busy mom of teenagers, working full time and running a household, serving in my church and community and also trying to have a social life ;), I am often pulled in many directions. I have lots to improve on and hope to do a few things differently going forward. I feel so lucky to do what I love. Thank you for supporting me!
Here’s to an amazing 2017!
Here are a few of my favorite images from 2016… (you can see the full size images below or view the slideshow)
<![CDATA[I can't believe another year has come and gone! It's been a great year. I am just coming off of the busy holiday season and am still recovering, but also soooo grateful for such amazing clients and opportunities to do what I love doing all year long. From maternity to baby announcements to newborns to children to seniors to engagements to bridals to weddings to families to corporate events, I am also grateful to be able to photograph a variety of things since my personality doesn't lend itself to the same thing day after day (a little creative ADD over here) and I really do love it all. I have tried really hard to stay focused on my artistic perspective – to keep my images classic, fun and pretty – while also trying to stay modern and innovative and creative. It's not as easy as it looks and we can often find ourselves comparing our work to others (especially in this day and age of social media) and wanting to be super trendy but I am happy with the work I've done. I am who I am and I see what I see. Thank you to all of my clients who have believed in me. I am looking forward to another amazing year!
