2013 – An incredible year

2013 was a truly incredible year.  Between my job and photography I worked far more than I ever have in my life.  It was nuts at times, I routinely went two to three weeks without a day off.   It was downright exhausting at times but I can honestly say it was extremely rewarding.  I consider myself to be a fortunate person in general but this year I was truly blessed with the opportunity to take photographs of some incredible people.  I am super lucky and will forever be grateful that I got to work with some really creative, awesome people who helped me push myself.  I really can’t thank everyone enough.

I’m excited for 2014.   Some of the faces from this post will be returning.   Some new ones will grace the blog as well.  I can’t wait to see where the year takes me.  It’s hard to imagine topping a bear attack themed engagement shoot or an intimate wedding on the beach in Oregon but I have a feeling 2014 will be just as awesome in it’s own way.
