2008 has been a wonderful year for Lot116. There isn't a day that goes by where I don't think of how lucky I am to be doing what I love..... and successfully at that. I owe all of it to my wonderful clients. Word of mouth is a crazy thing, and thanks to that I have never had to advertise or leave business cards/postcards anywhere.
On top of being crazy busy, I have met some of the most wonderful and amazing people along the way. I've had so much fun photographing your beautiful families, and hope to continue to do so in 2009.
2009 is already looking busier than 2008, BUT I will be taking on a few less shoots in 2009 so that I can make sure to have a good amount of family time as well. I'm hoping to save one of my weekend days at least every other week so that I can have an ENTIRE day to spend with my family. Mark works Mon-Fri, and most of my shoots are on Sat/Sun, so having just one full day with them each week or at least every other week is something that i'm aiming for in 2009. On top of family time, i'd also like for us to be able to make it to a few of my niece and nephew's soccer and football games (which are always on Saturdays...up in Temecula).
I'm not sure why I was crazy enough to try and pick my favorite 8 client photos of 2008. Yeah, that's like trying to pick your ONE favorite song on your iPod.....way too hard.
I have SO many favorites, but here are some of my faves of 2008 (in no particular order)....
Yeah, that was super hard to narrow down. Maybe I should have posted my favorite 2008 of 2008 ;)
Thanks again to all of my amazing clients, and also to my friends, family....and wonderful blog readers. I hope you all have a safe and wonderful New Years. See you in 2009!!!
