Goodbye 2018, Hello 2019!


Goodbye 2018, hello 2019! Scrolling through social media this morning, I’m seeing a TON of posts reviewing all of the amazing things that happened in 2018, as well as goals, hopes, and dreams for the coming year. For me, 2018 wasn’t without its challenges, but all in all was a pretty spectacular year. I visited the Dominican Republic for the first time. Went to four concerts – Chris Young, Blake Shelton, Michael Ray, and Thomas Rhett – with my sister. Met an amazing guy, and made a bunch of new friends.

I also photographed nineteen weddings, six engagement sessions, one maternity session, eight portrait sessions, and four senior portrait sessions! Phew! To say it was a busy year is an understatement; however, I couldn’t be more proud of everything I’ve accomplished in the last twelve months, cherish all of the new people that have come into my life, and look forward to an amazing new year!

My good friend and all-star second-shooter, Sam, took this photo of me and my guy, but I love it so much, I had to share!
