2013 a year of growing

We were blessed to photograph so many beautiful people and places this year and it was hard to narrow the photos down, so this post is a bit long! I love reflecting back on all that’s happened, to really just remember all the good.

When I think back on every couple, person, moment photographed this year I cannot help but smile. My heart is filled with joy, joy for new friendships, celebrations and all the couples who have committed their lives to loving one another. It’s been a beautiful year!

………………

A few exciting things and changes that happened in 2013…

    »We had our photos published on the cover of two magazines, Hearth and Belle Lumiere!!!! AHHH!

»We were photographed by one of my favorite photographers and friend, Erich McVey and we got to attend his workshop as models! The whole experience and meeting so many talented artisits was the best part of my year. Erich and Amy are two of the most beautiful people, really warm and genuine and SO fun to be around! 🙂

«We stopped eating animals…and dairy, except cheese, I love cheese. We still eat fish once in a while, so I think that makes us pescatarians. I know that has nothing to do with photography, but it’s a big change! We decided this mostly because we learned a lot about where our food comes from/how animals are treated (just youtube factory farms). I can live a healthy lifestyle without contributing to unnecessary violence, which makes me happy!!

»Our photos were featured on Style Me Pretty, Wedding Sparrow, Magnolia Rouge and Inspired by this.

«We got to travel to Santa Barbara, Oahu and all around Oregon for photo shoots, which is a dream come true!

……………….

So thankful for all of you, the encouragement, support and love from every friend and stranger has meant more than you know, thank you!

Happy New Year!

The winds will blow their freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like the autumn leaves.”
