FAMILY: like branches on a tree, we all grow in different directions, yet our roots remain the same.
I have no idea where 2012 went. I know it’s a sentiment echoed by many but, seriously, I feel like I just started to remember to write 2012 on checks and now I have to start all over with 2013. (which becomes increasingly more difficult with each passing year) As I wrap up this years behind the scenes “business-y” stuff, I am in awe of everything I have accomplished because of all of you! To others it might not be much, I am blown away. I have had the opportunity to work with some A-MAZINGLY kind hearted people, and have created friendships with those of you who have opened your lives up to me. I can’t help but smile at all of the pretty faces I photographed.
I have documented pivotal moments in people lives and the fact that you put your trust in me to create images that your family and friends will continue to look at long after I’m gone-completely just blows me away.
I am a person that believes that you can never say thank you enough. But to you especially…each and every one of my clients, friends, families, and everyone in between that has sent opportunity, or inspiration or cheers (or all of the above) my way. YOU played a large part in my success this year. Your continued faith in my abilities mean so much. For understanding just how passionate I am about what I do. To me, you make this business beautiful to be in.
But most of all, this post makes me incredibly giddy for 2013. Every year, I start out with a plan for myself and for my business, and God takes that and turns it into His own. Which is always way cooler and more exciting than my own!
You are wonderful and I wish you and your loved ones the best that 2013 has to offer.
Take time to laugh, Its the music of the soul. Take time to think, It is the source of power. Take time to play, It is the source of perpetual youth. Take time to read, It is the fountain of wisdom. Take time to pray, It is the greatest power on Earth. Take time to love and be loved. It is a God-given priviliedge. Take time to be friendly, It is the road to happiness. Take time to give, it is too short a day to be selfish. Take time to work, It is the price of success.
Thank you soooo very much from the bottom of my heart. Below are just a handful of the amazing people I’ve had the opportunity to work with this past year.
I end the chapter of 2012, with an grateful and happy heart…. Look out 2013……there are some big things planned!!
