The calendar flips another month and another year and it always feels like a clean slate in a way. Not sure why, but I never used to give it much thought. The New Year was just a reason to be with friends, wear glittery hats, and smooch with my love well past our bedtime. This year and those most recent, we haven't made it to midnight and I couldn't be happier about it. We wake up early, and a late night means a groggy day. I love waking early, cooking, cleaning, and feeling as if I've gotten in a full day before it's noon.
The clean slate of the new year has been important in the years since I've had my business. I feel it's important to reflect on the past year to see what I did well, what I want to do better, and then make a plan to do that. I make my plan for the new year first, then I reflect. What can I say, I work backwards.
Last year I wrote my new years blog and I was giddy with excitement about what I had in store for the new year. Looking back, the year I had blew the year I expected out of the water. The pictures below tell a story of many stories that I was incredibly lucky enough to document. I met many newborns, documented weddings, and took pictures of families just living their lives. To top it all off, most of the newborn shoots involved dogs! Seriously... weddings, kiddos, babies AND dogs!? 2016 was not so bad, but I am quite excited for 2017 and all that it has in store. Before we get a full day into 2017, I'm happy to share my favorites from this year.
Much love and health to all my friends this year. I truly hope you have begun 2017 in the best way and I thank you so much for all the opportunities you have given me as your family photographer.
