So here I am trying to diligently get some work done when I look down and see this:
Now back to work….
The day Brandy and I picked for their family photo session was going to be perfect. The forecast looked good, the sky was beautiful, the location perfect. Then the temperature plummeted. It’s really tough to get a baby to smile when he’s freezing! So, after the first few shots, we called it a day and rescheduled for another time. Shots from both days capture what a fun family this is and I can’t wait to meet them for some tasty fajitas soon!
Anna is the sister of one of my best friends. When she called me to do her newborn photos, I was ecstatic! I’d already met the rest of her family and couldn’t wait to meet her, Matt and the new baby. We had a tiny window of opportunity before Anna’s dad and husband both had to return to work, but we were able to find a day between Christmas and New Year’s when everyone was stateside. Perfect! (And I love that we were able to work Matt’s flight suit into one of the shots!!)
My good friend and fellow photographer Jessica Raney asked me to second shoot a wedding for her in South Carolina last weekend. The bride and groom were super nice and the wedding was beautiful. After a week of worry with snow and ice trapping everyone inside, the wedding went off perfectly! The wedding was held in a century old Catholic Church and reception followed in a cool barn just a few minutes away.
Sometimes it’s fun to reflect on the previous year to see where you’ve been and where you’re headed. It’s good to pause in both personal and professional paths to reevaluate. I’m in a great place right now – happy at home and happy at work. I have the world’s best husband and the most fulfilling and creative career possible. I’m so thankful to all of my friends, family and clients for your support. You are the best. Thank you.
