I feel like 2013 flew by, yet when I look back on all that happened in 2013, it was filled with so many things and a lot of growth. Here are my favorite photos, both personal and client photos, from this year.

A quick recap of the year:

-I officially started photographing weddings and was blessed to photograph 3 full weddings, a ceremony and an elopement. I love it and hope to photograph more in 2014.

-I photographed some fantastic underwater sessions, including some underwater trash the prom dress sessions and two underwater engagement sessions. I LOVE underwater sessions!

-Lots of travel! Hawaii, the Bahamas, British Columbia, Sedona a few times and the southern Caribbean this year!

-A rebrand (done by the amazing Ayo) and new website built by the fabulous and oh so patient Garret. Thank you guys so much, I love it!

-Lots of soul searching and thinking of what I want my business to be. I am going into 2014 with some changes and a clear focus of what I want my business to be and most of all how I can best serve those who hire me. It is a great priviledge to get paid doing something I love dearly and I want my clients to have the best service possible.

Thank you to everyone of you who has supported my business this year and all other years. I would be nowhere without you, and I can’t express how much I truly appreciate each of you in supporting my passion and business. Here’s to a great 2014!

Prints are available of my travel work.
