Happy New Year! As this decade comes to a close, I’d like to reminisce over the last 365 days and post my favorite photos from Her Side Project: 2009.
On a personal note, and mostly for my own benefit, here’s a list of what 2009 meant for me!
| I moved from Fort Worth, Texas to Austin, Texas | changed jobs | was a bridesmaid in two fabulous weddings | welcomed the sweetest baby boy in the world to my extended family (cousin’s first child) | made incredible new friends | established a solid photography client base in DFW | started to re-build that photography client base in Austin | went bridal gown shopping with my sweet roommate Brooke for her wedding | survived the Swine Flu – yep | eagerly anticipated and celebrated the birth of a childhood friend’s baby | attended Alison & Kenton’s awesome wedding | converted from the Blackberry to the iPhone | traveled to Arizona for Renee’s wedding, to Georgia with Sydney and to Washington DC for the first time by myself!|
Needless to say, I had a busy and exciting year, but it wouldn’t have been the same without my adventures in photography. I’ve loved meeting each new person, taking each photo, editing each image (even when grueling and into the night!) and most of all, giving my clients memories to cherish for a lifetime. There is no greater gift than when someone laughs, cries and/or has a visibly positive reaction during the results presentation. Thank you to each and every one of you who have asked me, or in some cases – let me, take your picture. Each experience has meant so much to me. I can’t say it enough… THANK YOU!
Glad to be back in Austin, Texas. Facing 2010 head-on. Confident it’s going to be the best year yet. Happy New Year!
