On the personal side, the year started with my first grandson turning 2. Then a few months after that, the BIRTH of my second grandson and the wonderful opportunity to be present and photograph that BIRTH!
Then I enjoyed doing the NEWBORN session for him.
Did a couple of really fun photographer PLAY DATES and had fun photographing kids and seniors! The GIRLS were gorgeous!
I took several little 2-3 day getaways around Washington state for fun and picture taking opportunities.
My one big vacation was to New Orleans in August. August, right? Isn't that the hottest, muggiest time of the year? Well....yes it is. And it's also prone to hurricanes! Which is exactly what happened while I was there....Hurricane Issac. The airport closed down the day of my flight back home, so I got to stay there for another 4 days....yay! It wasn't all bad. More sightseeing opportunities, and more bloody marys:)
Believe it or not, I actually haven't finished figuring out what photos I want to blog, so I haven't done a post yet. That's the problem when you take so many photos! Maybe I'll give you just one for now though......
Then another highlight of 2013 was the birth of my third grandson!!! This just happened in December, and I am currently working on those images, so a blog post will be here soon. I was extremely happy to be present for that birth also. What a miracle. Stay tuned for that post!
My fine art business is going great. I have many places that I sell my images, as prints, canvas, and lots of products like pillows, phone cases, laptop and ipad skins, totes....the list goes on and on! I belong to a couple FB groups with awesome, talented, supportive people that helps to bring some fun into all the many hours of work necessary to get it all done. I've been amazed at the success so far this year, much more than I ever imagined! I'm so appreciative of all those people out there that like my photography enough to buy it on products:)

I only take portrait client work part time, because of juggling all of the above AND my nursing job where I work 12 hour days. 2012 brought me some great clients and sessions, so I thought I'd share a few images from those for you. Thank you all, it was a pleasure to work with you!!
Thanks for keeping up with me and following my blog! Wishing you all the happiest, healthiest 2013!
