2018. Year in Review.

2018 has been such a great year! I got to meet some really kind, generous, hilarious, and just plain fun couples. I got to photograph my first birth.  I also started to play with food and beverage photography, which has been a learning experience. Of course, I also went on a few adventures with my family. So, this is a conglomeration of all of that.  Thank you all for supporting my business this year.  It means the world to me.

On a personal level, and not included in the photos, my year was full of big changes! We sold our perfectly lovely neighborhood home that we built 3 years ago and bought a 1969 fixer upper on a beautiful little piece of property.  It’s been fun starting to renovate it and make it our own, but I do miss having a dishwasher. My oldest daughter started Kindergarten. She goes to a cool little charter school, so I’ve officially been promoted to that mom that drives back and forth to school to drop off or pick up kids in our new (to us) SUV. I promise I won’t get any bumper stickers or window clings. Anyway, that’s enough about me! So, without further ado, here are the photos….

2017. Year in Review.

It’s been such a great year! 2017 was filled with so many wonderful couples.  Each one unique and all of them awesome. I got to work with people from all over the US, from the west coast (California) to the east coast (Boston). I even had one bride all the way from Brazil. And I didn’t ever have to leave the midwest. I had the best of both worlds. I got to meet so many cool people from all over, but I got to stay close to home so I could spend the most time with my three little girls.

This year, I shot more weddings than ever before, and even got to shoot my own mom’s wedding! That one was pretty special. I feel so honored to have been a part of each and every one of the weddings. Thank you for sharing your love stories with me.

I also had so So SO much fun shooting engagement sessions this year!!  So many adventures were had.  I got invited into homes and fed dinner. I went on hikes, and explored new places.  I got rained on, I got a few bruises, and I broke a few rules, but I got to know some truly awesome people.

In 2017, I also started exploring other sides of photography. I took some photos of my explorations into baking. I made french macarons for the first time…and then probably 5 more times after.  Also, a carpenter welcomed me into his workshop, and I got to capture his process making beautiful barn doors. (check that out here) I’m looking forward to doing more things like that in the coming year. Side note: If you own a small business and would like to do something like that, let me know! I’d love to be a part of telling that story.

Thank you.

I had so much fun with all of you.  Thank you for helping me to build my business. Thank you for supporting my family. Cheers to you and the last year, and here’s to 2018. The best is yet to come.
