“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.” ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce
Welcome 2012! For the first time (as long as I can remember), this new year felt extra special to me, and I felt more motivated in life than I have ever felt before, with the starting of a new year. I am not exactly sure what it was, but I was extremely excited about 2012, and all it has to offer. I look forward to developing and growing my little design business further, and seeing all the exciting projects that will happen this year! I also felt really motivated to focus on growing more personally in different areas of my life as an individual. 2011 was a good a year, not an easy one (many “ups” and “downs”), but I felt like 2011 dropped me off at a great place to start 2012, and for that, I am very thankful. It is such a refreshing and happy feeling going into the New Year with a positive and excited attitude. I learned a great deal (some through mistakes, of course and unfortunately…but I hear it happens to all of us! :) about myself, relationships, business, and life in general in 2011 (but I guess we are always learning in massive amounts in our twenties, right?), and I look forward to applying some of the things I learned last year, into this new year. On January 1st of 2012, I decided that my “motto” or challenge for this year was to see how I can be a blessing to others, and how I can give to others this year, rather than always past thinking of: “What can I get out of this year, or what good things will come my way throughout the year.” I am going to try to stick to the new mindset, to the best of my ability, throughout these next 12 months! So cheers to 2012! May this be a great year for everyone, and may many blessings come to you.

New Years shoot 2012:
Makenzie & Ryan are such a sweet (and gorgeous) couple. I had so much fun photographing them for my styled “New Years” couple’s party shoot. They were so fun, and patient, and Makenzie has the most beautiful hair! :) I love all the fun things you can do with a New Years themed session! So without further ado…Here goes 2012…
Thank you’s: Makenzie and Ryan for being my sweet, patient models! Many thanks to you, and may the new year bring you great joy! xoxo
