{Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | Las Vegas Family Photographer} My 2013 | A Year in Review

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!

My 2012 ~ A Year In Review {Las Vegas Portrait Photographer | Kingman Portrait Photographer}

I’ve been so looking forward to putting together this blog post…it is always so much fun to sit back and reflect on the year while looking forward to the new one ahead.  It’s been a wonderful year!  We moved into a new house in the mountains in January and finally have room for the kids to run and play (without annoying the neighbors).  We get snow and amazing monsoon thunder storms up here, and have room for a big garden and a chicken coop – two things I’ve wanted for a long time.  The kids have all grown and are a year older; I now have 1 in high school, 2 in middle school, 3 in elementary school, 2 in preschool, and 1 little sweetie still at home with me.  Oh, and we are expecting our 10th in early July and couldn’t be more excited!  My photography business is going well and I’ve added mentoring and editing classes to my repertoire this year.  I’m currently writing my first e-book on working with natural light and can’t wait to share that!  I’ve made some wonderful friends this year, witnessed (and photographed) a dear friend’s birth, taken some amazing road trips, and enjoyed my big family.  All in all, it’s been a great year. :)  Before you check this year’s favorites, be sure to take a look back at my 2011 Year In Review…I do hope that I’ve shown some growth in the last 12 months.  I taught myself how to use OCF so that was a big step forward for me this year.  It is always fun challenging yourself and learning new things!

Next year I hope to do more of the same – shoot what I love, further refine the techniques I’ve been working on, make new friends, watch my children grow, and have a new baby.  I cannot wait!  Thank you all so much for your loyalty and support.  I know there are a lot of choices when it comes to custom photography, and it means the world to me that so many of you have chosen to come back to me as repeat clients.  I take a lot of pride in what I do and put my heart and soul into every session that I shoot.  I can’t wait to see what 2013 brings.

Here is a collection of my favorite images from 2012.  These are in a completely random order and are a mix of client and personal images.  I’m an over-sharer so get a cup of hot cocoa and set aside a few minutes to see all of them.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!

My 2011 ~ A Year In Review {Kingman Arizona Photographer | Las Vegas Photographer}

It seems that the older I get, the faster the years fly by. This one was no exception. I feel like I was just sitting here writing my favorites of 2010 post, and yet, here we are, finishing up the last days of 2011. This year was a big one for me. I made a major change in my business structure which has brought me many new, and wonderful clients. I am the mother of a high school student! I sent one more little one off to preschool, and yet another off to kindergarten. I became a soccer mom (and loved every minute of it)! I made amazing new friends! My photography grew by leaps and bounds (at least I think so). We are preparing to move into a beautiful house up in the mountains. I so look forward to the deer and other critters that we’ll be able to feed from our back porch, and growing tomatoes in the winter (it has a green house)! The brightest highlight of 2011, without a doubt, was the birth of our 9th little love, Elliott Andrew. He has been such a wonderful blessing to our family!

What do I look forward to in 2012? Living in the mountains! Snow! Meeting new people and growing in my photography and business even more. And more than anything, being a mama to my 9 sweet kids and a wife to my amazing husband. I can’t wait to see where 2012 takes us!

Without further ado, here is a collection of some of my favorite images from 2011. They are in no particular order, and I’ve mixed my personal favorites in with my client favorites. As per usual with me, I’m sure I’ve massively over-shared. I can’t help it! 2011 was a wonderful year!

A HUGE thank you to all of my wonderful friends, family, and clients this year for making it such an amazing year! I hope you all have a very merry Christmas and an awesome New Year!
