Wow what a year 2018 has been! Even when I am writing this I have one last wedding of 2018 left which I am so excited for. I have to admit this year has been quite the roller coaster and moving back to North Dakota so abruptly was pretty intimidating. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to keep such great momentum with this business and stay full time. I owe a huge thank you to all my family and friends but especially my clients who have trusted me and continued to support me! With that said I am so excited for the growth of 2018 in my business and can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store. I put together a post with a photo from almost all of my sessions throughout this past year!
JANUARY – Brought me to Minneapolis with two sweet high school friends, The sweetest family in the Boise area, The biggest styled shoot I’ve ever put together, in Salt Lake City, and a really fun in home session with a few friends and photographers!
FEBRUARY – The month of babes and mommas, yes baby fever hit hard this month haha! With the sweetest momma’s maternity shoot including all the furry siblings, and the newest addition to another sweet family!
MARCH – Two shoots with one of my fave fellow photographers turned bestie! One with a sweet couple that was bridal inspired in the foothills, the other with the cutest couple out in the Owyhees.
APRIL – My first month back home in ND, after 2 1/2 years in Idaho and the changes didn’t stop there. I spent this summer the busiest I’ve ever been while missing my husband who was now working in Alaska for the next 6 months. My first session back home was for an old high school friend and his soon to be bride!
May – Here comes the crazy! May began the crazy busy of my 4th wedding season. Kicking off with an elopement in Sedona, AZ! Next up some photos with my studio mate/bestie Erica, and some mini sessions in the beautiful spring blooms. Also some graduation photos of my brother before he left to Basic Training.
JUNE – June was a pretty special month (hello birthday month:)) but I also got to visit my husband up in Alaska! June also brought a start to seniors, engagements, weddings, a maternity session and another styled session!
JULY – Another busy month which was good, I needed the distraction as it was mine and my husbands first wedding anniversary and we had to spend it apart. But on the bright side, I got to shoot another session with one of my favorite seniors, and photograph a sweet family. I also Headed back to Boise for a maternity/anniversary session, a couples session I tagged along with a friend to, a wedding reception and a mini styled session! – phew
AUGUST + SEPTEMBER – August blurred into September and there was no slowing down! 23 sessions total between the two with an elopement in Malibu and then the next week a trip back to Boise for a wedding in the mix! Seniors, families, weddings, maternity, couples and styled sessions!
OCTOBER – October was no exception with 19 sessions in total! My husband came back one of the last days of September so I was excited to finally be together again. We traveled back to Boise one last time for the year for an engagement session and to take a trip through the Tetons! It was a month full of lots of families, seniors, engagements, businesses and some travel!
NOVEMBER – Things kept up in November and I got to take lots of family photos, a few engagements, a fun collab shoot, a boudoir and a proposal!
That’s a wrap! December was an amazing month and I got to enjoy it with family and friends after a whirl wind of a summer season! Thanks for following along and I hope you stick around to see whats in store for 2019!
