And that's Part 2, whew! More to come as we look back through 2011!

2011.... What. A. Year. (Part 1 - Just for Fun!)

Can you believe this? That 2012 is knocking on our doors and 2011 is so soon to be filed away in the chapters of years gone by? I certainly can't! This year has felt like a whirlwind. A Speedy-Gonzalez type adventure that I couldn't slow down and wanted to push pause on so many times. How is it that when you get older the years just go by faster? I remember when this phenomenon started. It was summer going into eighth grade. No sooner had I heard the last bell ring for class that I was going back to those halls and wishing for just one more day of summer! It must have something to do with just enjoying life, and I guess they do say it for a reason, "Time flies when you're having fun!" Well, this year was so fun. I have so many beautiful people to thank for that. So many moments I was allowed to be a part of that made up a year of blessings for me. It's incredibly hard to choose photos for the blog on any other post, but especially when trying to commemorate a year that was more than I could have asked for. Ever. From old friends that are near and dear, to some I have known since they were 10 years old, to some who have made new places in my heart just by meeting them this year... I have had THE best time being a part of your days, your new beginnings, your laughter and your tears. All I can say is Thank You. A big ol', huge, king-sized, over the top and running over THANK YOU. It had been the pleasure of my year to serve you!


And now, for fun, I just wanted to share some of my personal memories from a few recent weddings! Part Uno of a year in review!


This lovely lady is a dear friend. Here she gets ready for the reception with her best friend.

A sweet image because the Groom is a DJ! Loved the way his ring looked surrounded by that sunset reflection!

What?? Can't a guy and his groomsmen enjoy a bicycle built for two?

Now this beautiful lady, well I have known her since she was in about 6th grade! Here she is, getting ready for that big moment...

This awesome shot was taken by my assistant, Teri Lynn. I love how she sees things!

Oh, that moment right before you see him for the first time! This is IT!

Just having a little fun...

Father-Daughter dance. This one was special.

I love to see Mom's face during this moment... even more when this Mom has been in my life for about 15 years!

Always love a good shot of the BLING!

The ladies at the Ezell House are so wonderful, and I have had the privilege of shooting many weddings and bridal portraits there. I absolutely love the challenge of being creative and finding new, exciting ways to shoot in the same place. There is never a lack of unique imagery that comes from working at the Ezell House!

And that's Part One! I hope to be back before 2012 makes its debut and share more from a jam-packed year!!
