If 2009 was a year of growth, 2010 will be known as the year I loved deeply. 2010 is also the year I traveled big, photographed big, dreamed big, changed big, failed big and then succeeded big.
I traveled to California, Las Vegas, Utah, Kentucky, Wisconsin, Utah (again), Cabo, Pennsylvania, Phoenix, Maryland & Colorado. And still (still!) did not earned that elusive elite status.
I made lifelong friends, cried until I couldn’t cry anymore and changed the way I thought. I listened to beautiful music, watched amazing movies and had conversations that both wrecked and spellbound me.
I stayed out too late, laughed a LOT and shared a 50 piece Chicken McNugget with 7 other people.
I crossed items off my 5-year goal list faster than I had ever hoped. I emailed a hella lot. And then I learned how to make sushi.
My marriage turned 5 years old and my dog turned 3. I remodeled my office and color-coded my bookshelves.
I spent months rarely sleeping and crying a lot but in those same months I experienced the highest highs of my photography life.
I rebranded ALL YEAR LONG but it turned into something I am emphatically proud of. I saw my bestie two times this year; two times! (For those of you who don’t know – that is WAY more than usual.)
I planned, executed and photographed the most amazing concept shoot that would make me lose my mind and fall in love all at the same time with a team of vendors that I am pretty sure could change the wedding industry as a collective and then? Two days later I turned 27.
I think it’s safe to say, 2010 was pretty much the most amazing year yet. You have some big shoes to fill 2011; let’s get started.
