well, well, well…
2009 has come to a close
it has been an AMAZING journey this year
the beginning of 2009 is COMPLETELY different from what it is now
every year, i total up the sessions from the year.
here is the tally for this year’s sessions:
16 maternity sessions, 17 babies, 43 children, 52 families
18 weddings, 31 engagements, 7 bridal sessions
6 boudoir sessions, 11 headshot sessions, 35 Graduates!!!
4 commercial shoots
1 MMA Fight
4 Birthday Parties
1 Fundraising Event
1 50th Anniversary
that translates roughly to
that’s 222 sessions!!!!! 18 weddings, 1 MMA event, 4 parties, 1 event, and one anniversary
wow!!! that’s a lot of photography!!!!!
it’s no wonder that life has been such whirlwind!
sometimes things became overwhelming and i spent a lot of time in a bipolar ebb and flow
and in case we had forgotten what we had set our mind and hearts to do….
that isn’t to say that we didn’t spend much time in laughter
that despite our losses, that we didn’t find great joy in our blessings
it isn’t to say that we didn’t have a great year
we simply had a year that made us put some thought into our everyday lives
a couple of years ago, Ali Edwards
, a scrapbook goddess
asked us to choose one word
that we would use as a reminder everyday throughout the year
keeping us centered
i have done this challenge for two years.
the first year being “life” and this year’s word was “faith”
for 2010… my word is
whether that means i’m focusing on my work
deadlines. goals. workflow.
life. love. laughter. hugs. moments. memories
because those are all fleeting.
2010 is my year of FOCUS
i hope you all have a WONDERFUL New Year’s Eve!!!
right now, laken and i are out of town decompressing from the holidays
from the hustle
from the sounds
and just enjoying quality time in each other’s company
