2012 Year in Review and Facebook cover images


2012. Oh, man, what a year!

All year long I felt like I was floating. A phrase that seemed to be on repeat: “I am so lucky.”

Professionally, I shot some of the most incredible weddings I have ever seen in my life. I’m utterly convinced that I have the most loving, most creative, happiest, and best clients anyone could ever ask for. I have laughed so hard, cried, and rejoiced with hundreds of people this year and it has been magical. I worked on so many marvelous weddings, engagements, newborns sessions, maternity sessions, boudoir sessions, surprise proposals, families, headshots, magazine spreads, product shoots, and more. I’ve teamed up with charities, been published in numerous blogs and magazines, collaborated with some of the area’s finest people, and basically been shown how wonderful life can be when you run a boutique photography studio that you love, even if it takes all of your time, blood, sweat, and tears. It’s worth it.

Personally, 2012 handed me a rocking goodie bag of amazing (not one of those crappy goodie bags with the cheap plastic toys). Through work and play, I:
Ran my first marathon in Florida, cheered on by my best friend and Mickey Mouse
Became enamored with New Orleans at a photography conference
Went on an whirlwind impulse trip through Europe
Chased sheep and danced the ceilidh and at wedding in Scotland
Participated in the MS MuckRuckus (and fractured my ankle in the process)
Moved to a new place in Chestnut Hill
Hiked through the Delaware Water Gap during peak fall colors
Ran in the Philadelphia half marathon
Raised almost $3000 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society

And I fell in love. Hard. I gained an Old English Bulldog, a menorah, and someone pretty incredible.

I am so lucky.

2012 is going to be big. Really big. Freaking huge!I moved to Philadelphia just 3 years ago and I’ll admit that showing up in December 2008 wasn’t the easiest pill to swallow when re-starting a business in a brand new area (remember that recession that hit in late ’08?). In 2009 I learned about the wedding culture in this area (trust me, there are definite differences between Philly and San Francisco) and started to figure out what was what around here. Things took off after that and now I’m busier than I’ve ever been. I’ve had some of the most incredible couples on the planet. I’ve seen weddings that have blown me away, made me cry (i ...
December Cancun vacation
Ack! It's about freaking time I posted something about my own holidays! Better late than never, right?Holiday Season 2007 felt like constant travel. I can't complain because I saw some great things and reconnected with some great people, but it is sooo tiring to live out of a suitcase for weeks on end.I never did get back to writing about our trip to Cancun in early December. Suffice it to say that it was excellent. I was originally a Spanish major back in college and I was really proud of myself for all of the Spanish I still remembered. Rich and I are total power vacationers – we had plans for every day that we were there so as not to ...
April Facebook Cover Images
I try to post the desktop/cover photos on the first of every month. I’d like to say that yesterday’s lapse was an intentional April Fool’s prank but it wasn’t. It was a case of Lindsay reading. You see, when I get into a book I don’t just read it, I consume it. It happened yesterday. Perhaps you’ve heard of this book. It’s called The Hunger Games.I started and couldn’t stop. I sat there on my bed for a few hours and flew through it, page after page, chapter after chapter until it was completely done. It was 3pm and I was still in my pajamas. I had forgotten about lunch. And then I realized I had places to be and wouldn’t be getting ...
