2009 is here!

Edited to add: Okay as I said in this post ...I had written this blog a while ago, and it dissapeared. Today, it reappeared! This blog has a mind of its own! Sooo....umm....Happy New Year (even though its now February). This blog is seriously crazy....

I had plans to blog in November about my mine and my husband’s awesome birthdays, Thanksgiving with our fun/crazy family, and all the fun things we did over “Christmas break”….but I have no idea where the time went!

As great of a year it was, I can’t wait to see what 2009 has in store for me, my family, and my photo adventures!

This has been the first year that I have really been out there taking pictures for other people and trying to make a name for myself (and of course blogging it all along the way). Considering that it’s all so new, I feel like it was a pretty good first year! I have some ideas for next year, some “business ideas” and some personal photo projects that I am excited to jump into!

I have been working on my web site lately trying to put together something that really represents me (well, as best I can with my limited resources). It’s very much still a work in progress, but with my new headshots, growing portfolio, and a few very sweet reference letters from my clients, its starting to come together slowly but surly. It’s so exciting for me to know that this is only the beginning and I can’t wait to see what this next year has in store.

But most importantly,I want to thank the awesome people who have trusted me to take their pictures.But almost just as importatly- I wanted to give a gigantic thank you to the ones who have spent time reading my stories and checking out all the pictures I have taken – as that really has given me the push that I needed. The support from you has been greatly appreciated and taken to heart, and really makes me feel like I am heading in the right direction! Major thanks go to ohana photographers-david and kimi and Hanissie Trainor for always leaving me so much blog love; it really warms my heart to know you guys are always keeping up with me. And a big huge thank you to my amazing husband for always being so supportive , Matt and Molly Snelson for taking the time to chat photo with me, really wanting to help me out , and being such warm friendly people . And of course every one out there who I know check out my blog (feel free to introduce yourself so we can become friends too! :D ) .

Since it’s the end of the year, I have to post the photo that we used on our Christmas card that we sent out this year!
Yes, it’s a little dorky, but we love dorky and were totally going for that look ;)
(it was taken spur of the moment before going out, and let me tell you…it is really very difficult to get both the dogs in a little picture while trying to make it in time for the self timer!)

[This last picture was not used on the Christmas card, but I think it was my favorite picture out of the set , so of course I had to post it too :) ]
