I find myself at another December, thinking over the year that has passed, trying to wrap my mind around all that has happened. This happens every year, but this year…seriously. Seriously?!
It has been a year of opportunity, of growth, of doors that have closed and opened, of learning, of travel, of relationships. Excitement, disappointment, joy. Things that, had you told me 6 months ago would happen, probably would have caused me to laugh in your face! It has been perhaps the busiest and most all-over-the-place kind of year for me…so here’s to hoping this Christmas will bring a little quiet, a little peace, a little sloooow down time, in order to appreciate just how full my heart is right now. Full at the thought of all these things, at the thought of how God has made his love and grace known in my life.
What better way to do this than to look back over pictures…some personal, some not, some that best represent my brand…I’m sure I missed a few, but here’s a further look into what 2010 was about.
We caught Olympic fever when the games came to town!
After meeting Jasmine, I knew I HAD to try and go to one of her workshops in OC, California…
It was an incredible, motivating experience. You can read about it and check out more photos here.
Fresh from the workshop and dying for some wedding experience, I had the opportunity to shoot this wedding with a friend!
Yay for our annual camping trip to Whidbey Island, Washington.
My parents – 25 years married :)
Another day after shoot – so fun! I love, love shooting couples in love.
Shane. The biggest reason why my heart is so full right now. A few more of my favourite photos…
A special family..most members have made more than one appearance on my blog. Here is one.
My lovely, dear, (and a little crazy) friend Janelle left me for Japan! So we did a photo shoot. Miss you!
The first couple to book me for their wedding photos next year :)
My oldest friend and her son – I love these two!
A first birthday and so much cuteness!
A vineyard/Kelowna engagement shoot! And a bride that has become a friend :)
And then there was HAWAII! A dream vacation with some awesome people (and more photos that ought to be blogged one day…)
Engagement shoot with Lanka + Mick…
A much enjoyed visit with family in Manitoba and one of my favourite photo sessions of all time….
I heart Seattle. The latest trip down made it on the blog here.
A field, a firehall, and lots of love and laughter…Brian + Stephanie’s engagement shoot.
I can’t help but look ahead to 2011 full of anticipation for what God will do with a new year! Already, there is much in the works. And many weddings on the calendar :)
