I have been sitting here for nearly forty five minutes trying to write out how amazing and unexpected this year has been for us but, instead, I’m just going to leave y’all with this maxed out box of images (like, literally maxed out – it won’t display more than 250 images even though there’s more included!) and say that I cannot even believe how wonderful this year was. Also, can I have a geek out moment? Good! We shot ninety-two sessions and seventeen weddings this year.

Yes! Ninety-Two Sessions and Seventeen Weddings.

How did that even happen?!

And the best part? Every single session and every single wedding was unique and different and amazing and so full of life and love and I am so thrilled that this has become real life. I have the most amazing clients and cannot gush enough about them! Then, on top of shooting so many amazing people (which, let’s be honest, was the highlight of my year), 2014 was also the year where I was able to become a Mentor for Clickin Moms (otherwise known as the best photography forum in the universe), present a Breakout Session, write a mountain of tutorials (see some here!), TA for some wonderful classes, be featured in both national and statewide blogs, be published in a nationwide magazine, and perhaps most exciting, was able to teach five different classes full of amazing and inspiring women at Click Away in Salt Lake City, Utah – one of which was broadcast live as I broke mason jars and coerced my sister into modeling for me. All of this has just been the most amazing experience and I can’t help but get a little teary eyed when I look back on it.

Thank you SO much for all of the support, y’all! 2014 was magnificent and I cannot even wait to see what the new year brings!
