WRITING FROM : GERMANY

Wow, 2017. It’s been such a whirlwind of a year. I’ve met and photographed some genuinely amazing couples, had great opportunities, dived deeper into education to continue bettering my craft, traveled to some epic destinations, and all the while nourishing my tiny family.

I instantly wanted to say- man, am I lucky! But if I’m being real, 2017 wasn’t what it was for me, my business, and my personal life because of luck. 2017 has been how I intended it due to a whole lot of hard work! Not to say there weren’t times I wasn’t in the right place at the right time, but you know me, and you know I’m not a fan of seeming perfect for the internet. So let the record show I set goals and I worked hard to achieve them!

My favorite moments of 2017

• Meeting the one- my life and biz bestie! I try to stay away from #blessed, but meeting Brittany of Brittany Brooke Photography has been such a blessing to me this year. I cannot wait to see where our friendship takes us! (Spoiler alert- be on the lookout for some pretty epic resources, solo-preneurs!)

• Visiting family in January and March! Visiting family is always my favorite, especially now with Grey. I adore seeing him light up when the family on the screen is in real life #IRL 😉

• Learning and talking business with Abby Springmann with Abby Grace Photography in Paris! (And that headshot above? Thanks to Abby for that!)

• Photographing multiple Destination Anniversary Sessions at some of my favorite Parisian locations!

• Relaunching my brand- logo, website, and mission (working with Louise with The Autumn Rabbit was a serious dream!)

• Going to Italy with my family and experiencing a completely new country with my boys

• Exploring Bavaria- Germany, Austria, a peek into Switzerland… it was an amazing 6 days starting with the drive down! We saw so many amazing places it almost seems unreal.

• Photographing my good friends 30th birthday donut smash, yep, donut smash!

• Bringing my fine art print shop to life, La Keepsake Shoppe. This was a difficult decision for me as my photographs are from my travels, but when I had the lightbulb moment of how opening this shop could benefit others I was all for it!

• Gifting a Bridal Session to a couple that didn’t have those cherished memories from their wedding day- I read through so many stories through the application processes and it was hard to select one. So many military spouses didn’t have the wedding they were dreaming of… But I’m here to tell ya- anniversary sessions and vow renewals are a total thing, ladies!

• Baby Grey hit so many milestones this year- he’s running around saying all sorts of words and starting to put them together even! He’s getting so big so fast- and I’m so stinking proud of him!

    Beautiful post, I loved reading about your year! I have a feeling 2018 is going to be SO GOOD to you!

  5. […] I would rather a friend or follower ask these questions of me than simply ignore supporting me on my social media posts that they resonate with- honestly there’s nothing worse! I’m an open book and would love to discuss my business with friends and family alike.  […]
