2011... In Review.

So if you were to compare 2010 to 2011 in nothing but numbers... I would have increased my weddings by 300% and doubled my sessions for the year and quadripulated my inquiries! YEAH! Fortunately, I don't really just use percentages and numbers to measure the growth of Faces in Focus Photography.  Besides, I really don't know what quadripulated means since I just made that up!

Okay so what do I really say about 2011? Honestly? Like whoa. It's been an amazing year! The people I've met, and the friends I've made have made this year so unbelievable. I've grown a lot as a photographer, and as a person. I didn't think I would fall in love with photography the way I have. Or meet as many incredible people.. I love every single part of this business. Yes, even the paying taxes and saving receipts part. Don't mock! I'm serious! It's a part of running this little business and to do it without failing miserably, well I call that success!

I can't wait for 2012. I love my brides & grooms that we have already booked and I cannot wait to make more friends this year. But before I start daydreaming about what's to come, I thought it would be a nice opportunity to recap all the incredible people I've met and photographed this year.

To all of you - thank you. I can't think of a single session this year that I haven't walked away from with a new friend. You made this year AMAZING and I cannot thank you enough.

With love,
