It's that time of year when I begin to reminisce on the year that has past - as a mom, I reflect on what stages the kids were at during the holiday season the year before. It strikes me that as my youngest is now 2, the differences from year to year will become less pronounced. To say that I am nostalgic for the baby days would be an understatement... but that is okay because I know the days ahead of us will be filled with beautiful memories too... As a portrait photographer, looking back on the past year includes evaluating what I did well & where I can make my business stronger, but mostly I get lost thinking about all the amazing families that have allowed me to capture a part of their story... families like @sannamandstyle & her adorable crew who allow me into their homes each year, year after year & grant me the privilege of seeing their little ones grow and change as well... When you put the two together - the ability to be a full time mom & wife for my family along with being able to create a brand that I am completely proud of - well, yeah, looking back on the past year is pretty sweet... Thank you to all of you who have supported this passion of mine along the way through your friendship, your loyalty, your advice, & heck, booking me! Love you all!
