2017 in a Post

Hello loves! This post is a bit late in coming, but 2018 is finally here and oh what a year 2017 was. No doubt it was the hardest, but most gratifying year yet. After getting out of a very unhealthy relationship in the beginning of 2017, I had to learn who I was again. And I'm still learning. And I don't think I'll ever stop because humans are unbelievably complex.

But... back to photography. Oh so many firsts as a child and fashion photographer.

In early 2017, I got to assist several amazing photographers, and I started DFW ClickinTeens (a local photography group for teens to support one another in their journeys).

In the spring, ABP's studio in Plano, TX opened (and got christened by a stunning Daydream Child shoot), and I started offering promo videos for local DFW photographers.

Summer brought beautiful Butterfly Princess Minis and endlessly yummy Ice Cream Minis and getting published in Vegas Runway Magazine.

Fall brought my favorite sessions of the year (Cozy Christmas Sessions, along with goodies from Chelles Macarons and Henry's Homemade Ice Cream) to the studio, a Christmas teen fashion shoot, and ABP started sponsoring a sweet little girl from the Philippines named Charice. I also had the privilege of photographing my sister's proposal (but goodness, that pit at the Ft. Worth Water Gardens is SCARY to walk down into!). 

All in all, 2017 was a pretty amazing year all thanks to all my out-of-this-world clients, the healing power of my savior and so many other people who touched my life. Thank you. Because of your support, we photographed countless little (and not so little ones) in the Dallas area (and even Denver, Colorado!), and I began our journey as a child fashion photographer. Below is a favorite photo from nearly every session we had in 2017. Enjoy and never forget how much you're loved and appreciated.
