Happy New Year!!

072_12131_fullHappy New Year!! 2015 was a CRAZY year, both personally and for the business! Hubby (the cute one, pictured here) was gone for the first part of the year (which was only half of the the deployment) and I was discovering San Diego on my own, with my baby puppy Widdle. The last half has been a whirlwind, including losing Widdle, getting two new baby puppies, Wicket and Weechee, moving to a new place, much more exploring, and becoming a member of Spanish Village and figuring out what to do with my business. At the beginning of the year, I was going to pursue photojournalism, but I had no idea that I would get the opportunity to be one of the artists at Spanish Village! I am excited to continue to photograph the things that I love the most, and for 2016, the current plan is to expand into product photography. I love capturing interesting details, angles, etc. when I take photos, so I would love to be able to use my perspective to try to take great photos of people’s products!

This is me sorta making New Year’s resolutions, because I’ve never been into that. So it’s my business goal for the year; product photography! My other goal is to enjoy life as much this year as last year, and even more!  I am also going to try to be better at posting on here. 🙂  I hope all of you had wonderful 2015’s and have even better 2016’s ahead!

Thank you to Robyn Icks Photography for the amazing photo!

Happy Holidays!

I’ve been bad at posting, so I figured I should post these photos before it was TOO far past Christmas…they are my “Merry Christmas from San Diego and Portland!” photos. 🙂  I hope you all had wonderful holidays and enjoyed them, however you spent them!

Additionally, I have an announcement!  I had an epic realization yesterday; that what I choose to do normally in life – go to EVERYTHING I can go to (fun events, restaurants, locations, etc.) and take photos of all of it – is exactly what newspaper photographers do.  I’m currently in love with the newspaper in San Diego (U-T San Diego), they’re fantastic.  So my goal is to get a job doing that, ideally for them, or if I can do that freelance too, that’s fine.  What actually started all of this was my email from San Diego Fashion Week about ways to get involved, and one of them was to get a press pass.  I’m sure I could get one if I actually worked for the newspaper, but I can also get one just as a blogger, so what I am going to do is to continue to do what I do, but I will actually be more proactive about it and ESPECIALLY more proactive about posting them on here.  So this blog will start getting a lot more posts about awesome stuff in San Diego!  Please follow, if you aren’t already, so I will be deemed worthy enough to get a press pass to Fashion Week!  That is my goal for 2015, my resolution if you will, and I would DIE to have one.  Thank you all so much for your support!christmas (1 of 1)-2christmas (1 of 1)
