The Year for Me
I hear myself say this every year, but I am taking it as a good thing- 2022 was my best year yet!
When you’re working behind the scenes, it is hard to really measure things. Those outward-facing accomplishments aren’t there and all I’m really left to work with are feelings. 2022 was a year of tremendous personal growth. I went back to therapy- my first time as an adult. I finally fulfilled my life-long goal of *successfully* moving somewhere new. My work has grown exponentially this year (as I hope it does every year). I made the decision to go back to college and complete my lifelong goal of achieving a higher education- I’m writing this blog post in the trenches of my first week of homework.
2022 in Numbers
I photographed the least amount of weddings that I’ve ever photographed this year- it was a huge adjustment, but a necessary one after extreme burnout the last few years. Every single wedding/elopement/session I had this year genuinely filled me with so much creativity, joy and freedom. This year was full of some of my favorite art I’ve put together and I feel SO excited to take everything I learned this year to absolutely kill it in 2023.
17 Weddings Photographed
47 Sessions Photographed
1,112 Miles Moved (from Cincinnati, Ohio to Austin, Texas)
4 States That I worked in this year. (Ohio, California, Texas, and Kentucky.)
14 Plane Rides
Photos Taken: I once again didn’t count the raws, but if you told me they were somewhere close to 12 billion I’d believe you.
Favorite Camera Set up: still my Canon Mark IV + 35mm 1.4 ll. however I sure do love my 85 too lately.
