How can it be the last day of the year?! 2016 has held a lot of good times and a few not-so-good times, but, overall, I'm so thankful for all the events that happened this year because a lot were pretty monumental- in my personal life and my business...
I started the year by traveling to Washington D.C. in January to attend my very first photography conference with friends. February brought my 21st birthday and a party with some fabulous people. In March, I adopted my favorite snuggle buddy, Oslo Baby and planned and executed my very first styled shoot. I went on to have three more in June, July, and September respectively. This summer I completed my first corporate internship as a full-time 9-5 employee living on my own in the Queen City, and I started my senior year of college shortly after. Since then, I have been able to participate in my first bridal show, invest in a Katelyn James Workshop (which will be happening next year) and a brand new camera body! But most of all, I am so thankful for all the connections I have made this year. I have made so many new friends in and out of the photography world, and that has made this year a really awesome one. 2016 was not perfect, but I've grown more as a person and within my business more than I ever have, and I'm thankful that this year has left me refreshed and ready to grab up all the opportunity 2017 has for me.
I'm heading to a little New Years Eve get-together with friends tonight, but I hope you enjoy this little recap of my favorite moments in photography for 2016. I love my clients so much, and it was hard to narrow this down!! Happy New Year! Let's make it our best yet!
I love travel and adventure. I love seeing things from new perspectives. I love to find good food in exciting places. And I love making moments last for as long as possible.
