2022 Year In Review

engagement, Family, Senior, Weddings

January 5, 2023

Oh, January.

Slowing down and looking back at the previous season always helps me to feel inspired and motivated for what could be for this year! Upon this reflection, I am always in awe at what amazing people I get to meet and work with. I am so very grateful for my 2022 clients.

January 4, 2022

Closing out year two of the pandemic, I think we can all agree that 2021 has been a hard year. Enduring this seemingly endless crisis has put more stress and strain on our collective mental health than I believe any of us really know yet…However, I am blessed to have this business as well, an art that brings me such joy.

I was SO EXCITED for this session! Paige and I met about 8 years ago when we were working at a local bank, a job for both of us somewhat in between careers. We quickly became close friends and enjoyed a few years full of laughs and memories¬†before life took us on separate paths. She […]
