2012 was an epic year to say the least. It was my 2nd full year being a full-time photographer, and it was insane. I photographed 38 weddings, which was a bit more relaxed than 2011 (when I photographed over 50!), and 64 various other shoots which included boudoir, engagements, seniors, head shots, babies, families, anniversaries, products, maternity, rehearsal dinners, and lifestyle. I spent roughly 212 hours at weddings, traveled roughly 6,600 miles to and from weddings, and spent around 120 hours in the car driving to and from weddings. I saw President Obama speak – twice! I traveled to Cincinnati to visit my family and traveled to Austin, Texas with my husband for our first ever solo vacation. I was published online and in print 18 times. I turned 25! I met the entire cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation (my all-time favorite series). And my husband and I bought our first house together. 🙂 I can only hope that 2013 comes close to being as awesome as 2012… but I’m determined to make it EVEN MORE AWESOME! Here’s a whole ton of photos to sum up the year, both personally and professionally.
