Wrapping up 2010

First...I have neglected my blog way to much this year. So one of many things to improve on for 2011 is to blog on a regular basis. So please keep checking back for new posts.

Wrapping up another year....
I can hardly believe another year is coming to a close. It seemed like the year would drag out when I was a kid and my parents would always say, “enjoy it now because the years will get away from you when you get older.” Well guess what, they were right! 
We have been so blessed to meet so many amazing people this year and to have been invited to be a part of their lives. It truly is an honor for us to have people put all of their faith and trust into us and our work, when they know that they will never be able to relieve this moment again. This is what keeps us going and loving what we do, to be able to capture the moments that they can never relive and to see the smiles and tears flow as they look through the albums, or cards, or watch the slide shows.
We also participated in Help Portrait this year, trying to use what God gave us to give back to some others. This was an amazing experience for our whole family as well as a few friends. Ten families who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford family photos got to have the whole experience of a shoot, along with getting hair done. We were also able to get a Santa for the kids and a donation of a gift for each child. Just the looks on the kids’ faces when they saw Santa, was enough for me, but listening to the people say how grateful they were for a picture of their family was absolutely the best feeling that I have ever had! Knowing that this would be something that they would treasure for years to come is something that makes me say, “Thank you God for the talent that I have been given, and for allowing me to do something with it that makes a difference.”
Looking forward to starting off 2011 with a bang....shooting Shannon and Max’s wedding on New Year’s Day! Will also be traveling to Hawaii in February for Jenna and Wilson’s wedding. Now that’s a way to start a new year for sure! Can’t wait to see what the Good Lord has in store for all of us in this upcoming year.
As I reflect on this year as a whole;  We met so many great people and were blessed with a growth in our business, but as with a growth within ourselves. We have seen what truly matters in life, have learned to have faith and patience, and that the plans we may have for ourselves and our lives are not always the plans that He has for us....we just need to relax and enjoy the ride.
Happy Holidays to all of our friends....present and future!!
