I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

A look back at 2012

Yeah. Have I mentioned yet that Africa was awesome?

Whew, what a year! 2012 was pretty amazing, all told. Evan and I got married in May (that was a big one!), we spent a month in Africa (another huge, life-altering event) and my photography business continues to grow, a trend that will hopefully just keep on going.

Not to say that this past year was perfect, oh no. We had a pretty serious health scare with Chee, which took months to resolve itself, and we are so incredibly lucky that it did. And there are definitely things I want to work on in the new year, like creating a coherent, cohesive feel for my blog, website, and packaging, and figuring out more ways to give back to my amazing clients.

Ways in which 2012 was awesome:
-Evan and I finally had our own, real place to live, with indoor plumbing and our own amazing kitchen!
-I started shooting film, which is its own journey. Still not sure whether it will become part of my business or remain a hobby, but I do love it.
-We went to mother-freakin AFRICA. For a WHOLE MONTH. Probably the most exciting thing that I've ever done, except for maybe, well, when...
-We got MARRIED. Quietly. Sweetly. Until the vodka started being poured . . . . This might be one of those huge life decisions, but it's one that I lost no sleep over at all. When something is right, you just know.

What I hope for 2013:
-A year that is just as amazing as 2012, where we do new things, cross new boundaries, and continue to broaden our horizons.
-To find a better, easier life balance between work and play. To work when I need to work, and then to step away from the computer and the camera and enjoy the heck out of the rest of my life.

What about you?? What are your goals, wishes, values for 2013? And as you look back, how was 2012?
