The year’s not quite over, but what a challenging, growing, good year it was, and I am so grateful. Here are some highlights, in no particular order:
+ I took a photo a day for more than 100 days, and worked on my off-camera lighting skills.
+ I traveled! Ian and I spent a weekend in Maine for our first wedding anniversary, and another weekend in Chicago just because.
+ I shot along-side some very talented photographers, including Emily Sterne and Melissa Robotti.
+ I attended the absolutely amazing, mind-blowing, consuming (in a good way), Roots Workshop, where I got to learn from some of the best wedding photojournalists in the country.
+ I spent time with family in New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire.
+ I officially opened the doors to my photography business.
+ I photographed Bill Clinton.
+ I wrote a wedding grad post and became a sponsor for A Practical Wedding!
+ I spent time with my three best friends from college, getting together for a combined bachelorette party and wedding weekend.
+ I volunteered my time and photography skills for the Fresh Ink Theater Company, and for Jawan.
+ I traveled to DC to shoot two weddings: Meredith and Dave, and Mahvash and Shorit (come back in January to see their post!)
+ Ian and I hosted a holiday party – our first party as a married couple.
