A pre-wedding bridal session with beautiful Danielle. xx
The past year is hard to fit into a category, to quantify or to label. It wasn't crazy-busy or exciting in its entirety. Oftentimes, yes. But other times it was quiet and slow, full of the wonderful but mundane in-betweens that we so carefully avoid on Instagram. (Guilty.) There were moments of energy and intensity, hard work and little sleep, challenge and reward. There were hours upon hours of editing in my fuzzy socks, with quesadillas and podcasts as my daily bread. And there were moments of true and incomparable joy, like when I held my tiny, 6 lb niece for the first time, or when Tyler knelt down on a cold day in June and asked me to be his wife. This year was many things. And I'm glad it was.
High up on my 2014-grateful-list are my clients who trusted me, who were kind and patient, who believe that good art takes time and is always, always worth it. Thank you for not caring if your dresses got dirty. Thank you for exploring new places with me, and for pushing yourselves to new comfort levels. Thank you for making sure that I ate dinner, for group hugs at the 8th hour, and for sharing some of the kindest words I've ever heard and read. I couldn't do this job without you.
