I remember a year ago sitting down to write this same post, reflecting on my 2010. Feels like yesterday. This year has flown by. I spent this New Years Eve shooting a wedding. It was an INCREDIBLE wedding where friends of mine came together to celebrate the marriage two wonderful people. Because it was New Years Eve, I often heard the question "Was it a good year?" being asked during cocktail hour. It got me thinking. Was it a good year? Without hesitation I can say, "Yes." There were many challenges this year. Many situations that caused me to be stretched out of my comfort zone. Many times I fell flat on my face and many learning experiences. But each of these challenges are merely small threads to my life's story and pages to the chapter of my 2011 year. So many wonderful things came out of 2011. This past year was full of adventure. I met so many incredible people between the weddings, portrait sessions, and travel photography. I was given the amazing opportunity to partner with Not For Sale in Romania and California. I traveled to Puerto Rico with my family this summer and witnessed the engagement and marriage of my younger brother. Visited friends in various parts of the US. I also was blessed with the chance to travel back to Kenya where I used to live. So, when people ask the question, "Was it a good year?" Its hard to respond with a simple, "yes." It was a fantastic year. And things keep getting better. Here's to 2012, folks...let's make it a good one. Happy New Year!
