How was 2018 for you?! For me, it was a pretty great year, but I certainly don't say that every time a new year is around the corner. But 2018 definitely had more ups than downs for me, my family and my business.
The best thing about 2018 was welcoming our daughter into the world in April. She came on the early side, which I was so grateful for given that I really, really don't like being pregnant. Around the same time as our daughter was born, my husband was offered a job in Southern California. We had been looking to leave NYC since the beginning of 2017 but, for various reasons, the move didn't happen. So as luck would have it, we moved to Cali when she was 7 weeks old. It probably sounds crazy, right?! And in hindsight, we wouldn't have planned it that way, but I have pretty quick recoveries from birth, so the move wasn't as difficult for me as it might seem. Moving to the West Coast, establishing a new close circle of wonderful friendships and getting to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle in the sun was exactly what I hoped for when we made the move. Moves don't always go so well, but this one went about as good as it could go for us.
I've collected a few images from shoots throughout 2018 here. They're not my necessarily my favorite (so if you don't see yourself here, it's not something to worry about). I simply collated a few handfuls of images that made me smile and made me grateful for the year 2018.
Wishing you all a wonderful start to 2019!
