|Love and Roses Die Together|
This was my last photoshoot of 2013. It was such an amazing year for me with my photography. I grew so much and met so many amazing people along the way. I worked on a 365 day project and got to 192 before ending it. It got the point where I would dread taking a photo each day and editing it and I didn't want to do it because I had to, but because it's something I love and I realized that finishing the project but hating photography by the end of it was not worth it by any means. I spent 3 days of workshops shooting with the one and only Rosie Hardy and it was one of the best times of my life. I shot my first sporting events in 2013 as well and I realized I have a passion for that as well. Baseball is fun and I will continue to shoot that but I really did fall in love with shooting football. I remember how all week I was just ready for the Friday night lights to come on and all my stress could be relieved. I remember the first shoot of 2013 (final image here) and I really thought I had step up my game (which I did) but it's crazy to me how much difference a year can make. I took a lot of risks with my photography with trying new styles and some made me realize how I wanted to do things and others made me realize that I'll never try that again. All I can ask of 2014 is another year of learning and improving just like this past year. Can't wait to see where it takes me!
