Goodbye 2012 & Hello 2013

Yes, I am aware that this is a tad late. ;) 
This year has been more than just exciting, but also full of adventure. I have grown in many areas that I would’ve never dreamed of. I’ve accomplished things that I would’ve never dreamt of, and all I can do is look back with a simple smile.
This year has held everything from going to local rodeos to...

Painting my room...

Having the best cousin, Triston fly from California..

Random photo shoot with this beautiful girl...

Shooting my first wedding...

Having friends over from California, Oregon, Idaho, and of course Washington! It was a blast having them all at our house for the annual “Free Ski Week” our local ski resort hosts yearly.

Hello dancing! (A must for all special occasions)

I was able to capture this beautiful family this year...

Got my drivers license.. Whoop! 

Was able to play Varsity soccer for my 2nd year! (Yeah, I home school, but I am still able to play a sport) :)

Got my dream lens, the 50mm 1.4!

Adopted two new miniature ponies into our farm..

My parents won a free trip! More on that HERE.

Countless trips on the lake. Ahhh..

Not to mention this picture was published in the one & only Salon Magazine! You can check that out HERE.

Took pictures of this cute little baby..

Went to one of the last drive-ins in the United States! It was beyond amazing!!

Had a girls night in this beautiful city...

With these beautiful people!
Took pictures of my very first Senior...
I’m sure some of y’all remember Hannah's beautiful face. I took some portraits of her pretty recently. Love this girl!
Went to Seattle & got to see the famous “gum wall."
While in Seattle, we went to see the very first Starbucks, can you say SCORE!
& last but not least, a spend the night with these lovely girls!
It was an amazing year & I can’t wait to see what 2013 has in store for this girl. ;)
