2011: Year in Review

What a year 2011 was. I got engaged. Finally moved to my dream Houston neighborhood. Sat by family members who fought off health scares (and triumphed!). Got promoted at work. Took more time for me.

That last one meant a shift in work/life balance and I think I might finally be finding the swing of things. Although who really ever does? We moved out of Grace Hart & Company selling off my dad’s collection early in the year. Which was huge in gaining “me time” back (thanks, Mom!). And the longer I work as a part-time photographer, the better I seem to be getting at balancing all that that requires – the fun shooting part and the not-so-fun business part. And I’m really looking forward to 2012 and continuing to hone all of those skills.

Here are several of my favorite images that I took in 2011. Thank you to all of my amazing clients! I have enjoyed working with all of you and watching your families grow over the past year. Thank you so much for entrusting me with your photos.
