2010 is coming in just a few hours. My plans are pretty boring, but I like them. My husband and I started a new tradition last year, which is that we “camp out” in the living room by the fireplace and then eat pancakes in the morning.
This time last year, I had just received my new 35mm/f2 lens and a copy of Adobe Lightroom. I had no idea I’d be starting a wedding photography business. 2009 has been a year of surprises for me. I thought that by 2010 I’d be a mother. I’m not a mother yet – that’s been a disappointment – but there have been a lot of GREAT things occur in 2009. The biggest: I’m a photographer! Wow. I can’t believe how many cool people I’ve gotten to meet this year. I’m working on putting together a portfolio book for myself (I figure I’ll do this yearly) and I’m still so in love with some of these shots. Beginning a photography business has taught me so much about money, business, MYSELF, how to talk to strangers, etc. It’s also kept me up way past my bedtime most nights, but I’m working on that.
A couple of “best of 2009” posts will come shortly. For now, here’s a message from me and my dog, via the web cam:
