There are not going to be a whole lot of words in this post. It’s a wrap-up to a wonderful year in collage format. 40+ sessions last year = a very long blog post. I’m not going to even apologize It was a wonderful year and I love each and every one of my clients and wouldn’t have this post any other way. (I actually do have one other elopement that didn’t hit the internet as it’s totally top secret. It KILLS me because it is by far one of the MOST beautiful elopements I have ever done but nonetheless, it stays offline until I get the thumbs up sometime in June/July of this year:)
This is a good time to make my announcement as well. Looking back at my past years as a professional photographer, I have decide to really narrow my focus on who gets in front of my camera. I’ll be announcing a bit more of the details later in the month but for now I’m going to only take commissioned (family) portraiture clients if I’ve already had you in front of my camera. I loved every single one of my family portrait clients in the past, but in order for my business to really grow into what I need it to be, I need to put more time and energy somewhere else.
So with all that said, let’s get to the good stuff! Onto photos from 2012…
