This is my last blog post of the year, and although I heavily considered doing a “best of 2011” post, I thought it felt more appropriate to feature a family on the blog, since family photography is what I love to do best.

But I will say that this has been an amazing roller coaster of a year. wow oh wow, is really all I can say. I went to lunch with some friends yesterday, and was reminded that at the [epic] holiday party I threw last year… out of over 120 people, I only personally knew 7 or less at the time. And since then, I have worked closely with some of those people, have travelled with some of them, and have so fortunately come to call some of them my dearest friends. This is the very first year of my whole entire life, that I feel like I have found my niche… that I have chosen my friends & they have chosen me.

I am wholeheartedly looking forward to 2012. I believe–I have faith–that the direction we are heading can only be one of positivity & of hope. The other night, Michael said to me, “Life is life. You’re not writing the story, you’re living the story.” So for 2012, I vow to live my story… and to live it to its fullest extent.

Happy New Year! And much, much love.

Dana Pleasant - Absolutely stunning session!! Beautiful family as well.

J Shoda - It’s an overused word, but all I can say is “Amazing”. Describes the level of your work (which these are f*****g beautiful btw), and how I consider you to be as a friend. Love you, been such a great year to know you. Cheers to 2012.

Ozzy - Catherine, thank you so much for capturing our family so beautifully. It’s such a treat to finally have pics of the three of us together. You did an amazing job and we couldn’t be happier with the outcome. :)

Elaine - I could write pages celebrating you and the happiness I feel looking at your pictures. Here is to an even better 2012!

amy - such mastery. the images have soul, the framing is knock your socks off, the careful perspective beautifully conveys the weight of the relationships, and yet there is a lightness that uplifts me just taking them in. the details and fleeting moments are surely where we find the pulse of our lives. you get it. wow. such a fan :)
