2009 :: What a year!//December 31, 2009

In January I traveled to Australia for the first time and snorkeled the Great Barrier Reef.

In February I played with puppies. And photographed the SPCA’s Paws in the Park at Lake Eola.

March brought the launch of my new blog. And an amazing engagement session!

April found me at the fair. And bowling (of all things!)

In May I headed to Bermuda. And Marco Island for an amazing destination wedding.

June. Pink. Wedding. Dress. Need I say more?

July, oh July. My first newborn session.

August saw a shiny new logo and website! And headshots of one of my favorite wedding planners.

September found me speaking at the Maui Photo Festival and Workshops and photographing some amazing hula dancers!

October had me hopping off to Iceland. And shooting a gorgeous wedding in a fairytale like setting. Close to home!

November was the month I didn’t sleep. Full of weddings, weddings, and more weddings!

December was when I took time off. Which really meant I traveled to Thailand to shoot a story (blog post to come in the new year!) and tied up a lot of loose ends on the admin side of things.

And brings us here. December 31. I’m so grateful for all of my family, friends, and amazing clients. 2009 was truly a wonderful year for me and I hope that you enjoyed as many blessings as I did.

Have a happy and safe New Year’s Eve and I’ll see you on the other side!
