What a year this was. We probably all need some time to reflect on it and that is what I have been doing as I end my wedding and portrait season this week. Hence, my End of Year Review!
This year, 2016, there was disruption, excitement of all kinds, plus many wonderful things, too. In my business – my wedding clients were the best ever, all of you so interesting and creative how you planned the perfect wedding celebrations to share your love with family and friends. I am grateful for my returning clients who’ve come back every year or so to record life’s milestones. Thank you. I have enjoyed every minute with you all!
This year stretched me and challenged me to see familiar things in new ways. There is always something new to learn and this year came with opportunities to grow. I decided early in 2016 to have a word for the year. It was – ‘Effortlessness’. I did manage to find moments personally and in my work that became effortless. Quite amazing, actually. I will find a new word for 2017 that will inspire and push me forward again.
I decided to limit this End of Year Review to 8 photos. It was definitely a challenge. The images I chose include clients I have spent a lot of time with over the years, and those clients that sat in front of my camera for only a few minutes, and in doing so, gave something of themselves to the photo and me. I wish I could include everyone, but that would be to large a task and too long a post.
So, thank you to all of you who entrusted me with your wedding, event, headshot or portrait this year. If I did not include you here, please know that it is not because I did not care about you or that something was not good enough… I chose to share those moments that were unexpected or that stood out in a unique way for me. Please know that each one of you are special to me.

That wraps up my End of Year Review. By the way, if you are thinking about your ‘word’ for 2017 here is a link to a word list to inspire you. It is from Christine Kane, a business Coach, who I heard about through a friend who has worked with her.
