A Year in Review :: 2012

My fabulous 2012 clients!!  As I look at all of these images that represent a year of my “work”, I am amazed and thankful that all of you chose me to photograph some of your most precious moments last year.  This is not simply a hobby for me or something I do because I have a “nice” camera.  This is my passion.  This is my career.  This is how I help support our family.  J

Humbly, this collage represents 25+ rising newborn photographers who have mentored with me over the past year.  I am so incredibly blessed to have met each of you and am so excited to watch you continue to blossom in your careers!

This collage also signifies something to me personally …. BALANCE.  There’s a reason there aren’t 100+ photos in this collage.  In previous years, I jumped at the chance to photograph anything and everything, without realizing the negative consequences that come with stretching myself too thin – and in 2012, I was determined to change that.  With the arrival of my own baby boy last year, I committed to take time away from my photography business to learn how to be a mama to three young children, while being a “great” wife (still working on that), maintain our home, etc., etc.  With young children at home, these years will pass so quickly and I am so thankful to be able to stay at home with my children while pursuing my dream.  And very, very thankful for a loving and supportive husband.  <3

I can’t wait to see what 2013 has in store!
