2013 in Review

Yet another year has come to a close and each year feels like it has flown by even faster! As fast as it feels, there has been so much life that has happened. So many new accomplishments, lessons learned, friends made and memories created. I cannot express enough how grateful I am for all my clients who have believed in me, trusted me and befriended me. Being able to photograph you and your families and special moments has brought me so much life, love and happiness! Thank you to the bottom of my heart for everything!! I'm proud to say that I have accomplished many of my goals I set for myself this year, both personal and professional.

Some of the personal... I lost 45 pounds, WOO HOO! Found a new love for painting, recently applied to graduate for my AA in art (should be getting my diploma in the new year!), made many new wonderful friends, and traveled more!

Some of the professional....Discovering my photographic style, treating myself to a new lens, photographed the Central California Women's Conference with Helen Hunt whom I got to meet (HUGE accomplishment!), creating a new look for my website, second shoot for a few talented photographers, got to photograph my best friend's maternity photos (and soon to be newborn twin photos!), networked with some LA photographers, taught myself how to use a film camera, and finally after many months...(heck YEARS) of worrisome and hesitation, I decide to begin my new journey into wedding photography! I am confident and ready and more excited than ever! I recently met with an amazing couple and I booked them as my first official wedding for the new year!!

I have a pretty good feeling about the new year and am excited for all the new adventures to come with it! Watch out 2014!!

Here are just SOME of my favorite images of 2013...(We don't want to be here all day!)
