you have been fantastic to me.
I’ve learned a lot, I’ve been afforded some amazing opportunities, I’ve had the chance to let my creativity shine, and I’ve become a better person through the process.
i’ve learned to enjoy the process, and not just look forward to the destination. i’ve learned to open myself up to any and all possibilities, and that i’ll be amazed by the results. that really is the overarching lesson in 2012 for me. that my mind really is the limit on my potential, and that if i change my mind, i can truly change my life.
i experienced some amazing things this year also: the birth of 3 awesome Canadian babies that i’m an e-auntie to, my first trip to the state of Texas – which was for my first Dallas Cowboys game, another trip to Toronto, the chance to take pictures of some of my absolute favorite artists in concert, the chances to take headshots, engagement shots, baby showers, and family shoots of people, parties, dinners, brunches, random nights of drinking with my friends, late night FaceTiming, and a plethora of other events that shaped how my year turned out. it’s been one of my best years to date, and i am truly excited to see how 2013 can top this year.
thank you, 2012, for showing me so much about myself, and for being the year that i finally planted the seeds that will lead me through the rest of my life. from my personal life, to my career, to photography, to my social life, to my responsibility to my community, i have a greater clarity and focus that i believe will carry me through 2013 and beyond.
