It’s been a whirlwind of change and growth this last year. From doing the most weddings ever to moving into a studio, then my husband breaking his neck in a surf accident and now sale and move of our house. While the injury itself was not the best gift, all that came along with it has been. We were able to RESET all our priorities and refocus on each other and now my business. I’m very excited for the year ahead. VERY!
I have a heap of work to blog, but I’ve simply been delivering the work and not blogging it through all this crazy. Life has settled, well almost… we move houses in a month. I’m now pretty much booked up for all of this year. I’m contemplating taking another 5 or so weddings and focusing more on weddings and less on portraits with exception to those repeat clients. I do LOVE shooting full circle. the wedding. the belly. the newborn. As is life.

Here’s where I’ve been the last few months…
The new studio, which after only about six months will all get shifted into our living room as we’re moving!! Can’t. Wait. Who knew that Santa Cruz had the Burbs?!
The studio was heaven sent though for the short season it served.
