As I sit here on Christmas Eve with a bunch of very excited littles, it’s hard to believe that another year has gone by. My biggest highlight this year was without a doubt the birth of our 10th little one, Gabriel Lucas this past June. I’ve made many wonderful new connections with people, and had an amazing year both personally and professionally. I always have so much fun putting these together, and hope that I’ve shown growth from last year’s review. I’m going into 2014 making some big changes as my family/business balance has been off kilter lately and I need to get things working right again for me and my family. My hope is that these changes will afford me more time to do things on the home front. I feel as though I’ve really refined my style this year, and want to push my creativity to new levels in the year to come. I’m greatly looking forward to it, and already have so many exciting sessions and opportunities on the calendar for the New Year. I’ve entered 3 prints in WPPI’s 16×20 print comp this year and cannot wait to see how those do – hopefully it’ll be a great way to kick off the New Year.
I’m warning you now, this is going to be long. I went through my year’s worth of work, grabbed favorites, and put them into these collages. This is a mix of personal and client work, and is in no particular order at all. My baby is in here a lot as he was such a big highlight of our 2013 year. The kids are all a year older, and a year closer to being grown. It goes by SO fast! I’m amazed at what we have accomplished as a family. Clint has his driver’s license now – oh my! It seems like yesterday that he was Gabriel’s size! If you have a few spare minutes, you can also check out my 2012 Favorites here.
Stay tuned for 2014 – I cannot wait to see where this journey takes me in the coming year. :) Merry Christmas from my family to yours, and best wishes for a wonderful, happy, and healthy New Year for all! Grab a cup of hot cocoa, and enjoy! Thank you everyone for such a wonderful year!
