I woke up today and decided “I’m going to blog!” because it’s been awhile. 4 months to be exact. What happened this year? Well, I started off 2016 with a bang. I look back at my personal work and am pretty pleased. Perfection? Nope. Never. But I’m happy. I also made Click Pro which was SUPER exciting. And then it happened. A BIG FAT RUT. Happens all the time, right? Yes…but this one was a long one for me. My client work didn’t suffer, but my personal work did. I wasn’t happy with anything and looking back, there is definitely a huge hole in the middle of 2016 that is missing something. But, somewhere in the middle of busy season (AKA as fall family portrait season), I realized that I NEEDED my personal work to improve. After all, what is the point of a rut if you don’t come out of it? Because you know what’s on the other side of something negative? Something positive. So finally…FINALLY at the end of the year, I got my groove back. Perfect? Nope. Still not perfect…but I’m happy. I’m happy because I’m shooting what I feel and what I love again and it’s working. For me anyway. So 2017 is going to consist of another 365 project, which I hope to share on here and on my instagram feed (and even a few on facebook!). It’s also going to consist of plenty of client work. Because I love that too and I can’t wait to grow even more with all of you. I have a few other goals in mind that I DO have documented, because if they’re aren’t written down they won’t get done, amiright? So Happy New Year and here’s a little glimpse of my personal 2016 images.
