I love year in reviews because you get to see in one place all of the things you've accomplished, and how much you've grown. I also keep an album on Facebook with all of my photo sessions in it for the same reason. 2013 year was my third full year of being a photographer & art teacher, and I had a blast! I made a lot of big decisions this year including the decision to stop booking weddings. I love weddings, and I had such a great time with all of my brides this year, but it was important for me to set some boundaries for the future. Weddings + teaching full time = one crazy lady! I am excited to capture my last "official" wedding in February with 2 of my closest photographer friends. I will definitely try to go out with a bang!
With the announcement that I will no longer be booking weddings, I also announced my decision to concentrate on families and kids. I've discovered that I love capturing sweet family moments, and I can't wait to do more shoots like this in the future!
I also shot more babies and newborns this year than ever before. [Including my brand new niece :)]
I also re-branded my business, changed my business name, created a photo website, and worked hard on separating my teaching site from my photography site. My most recent update is that I bought my first professional level camera! It came in the mail on Thursday [just before Santa gave my whole family a stomach bug for Christmas], so I haven't been able to really play with it as I'm still recovering from the bug, but I'm so excited to get started again with shoots in January. I thought I'd end my year in review with some of my favorite images from this year. Have a happy new year and I can't wait to see what 2014 has in store for Ashley Blevins Photography!
