Happy New Year!

 Each year, I spend Spring and Summer capturing the most important day of many couple's lives. I photograph their families, the details of their wedding day, and their love. I absolutely love and adore my job. It is a blessing and an honor to share in these moments with some of the most amazing people.

The downside is that having a photography career can make it a bit challenging to capture your own family. I am so grateful for the moments that I've taken the time to preserve for my family. It makes me feel a bit remiss that I don't make preserving our own memories more of a priority.

This year, my goal is to make documenting my family a regular habit. Not only do I want to take pictures regularly, I want to create a set process for preserving those memories. This desire gave rise to The Remembering Place. The Remembering Place is a space for me to share with an older Muffin and an older self.

Here's a bit from our New Year's Eve!

You were a bit sad, because we didn't hang lights outside of the house. Of course, I found out that outside decorations were a necessity on December 30. With that revelation in mind, Daddy and I planned a surprise. I covered your ceiling in Twinkle Lights!

Every year, on New Year's Eve, we create a family photo booth. We bring in the new year with love, fun, and each other.

You begged and pleaded to stay up all night. I smiled and hugged you, because you looked so sincere in your request. You made it to 11:00 pm. :)

Daddy and I stayed up a bit longer to eat ice cream, play Madden, and watch the ball drop! All in all it was the perfect ending to 2014 and a perfect beginning to 2015

Love You Forever and Ever,
