2013: A Year in Review

I am so excited to share some highlights from my year. There are a series of very exciting things that have happened but here are my top 10!

I believe the practice of summing all the year’s blessings is a great exercise to stay positive and grateful. God has really blessed me throughout 2013 with success and incredible lessons learned.

I also want to thank the many people I’ve worked with – each and every one! I feel so much gratitude and I am looking forward to a fantastic new year! These are some noteworthy events and photos that I’d like to share. I really believe that anything is possible with a lot of hard work and prayer. I hope that by sharing what God has done in my life, that it inspires others to dream big in 2014.

Again thank you for supporting me throughout this journey!

10. How She Hustles

I’m so grateful to the founder Emily Mills for showing me so much love and having me as the event photographer for the How She Hustles brunch. It is such an amazing movement that I’m glad I could be a part of in 2013.

7. Published in Munaluchi Bride Magazine

When 2013 started I had a goal to be published, but I never thought I’d have my work featured in an international wedding magazine! My feature in Munaluchi was dream come true and I am so grateful to reach such a fabulous milestone in my career!
