I got married, I went to Las Vegas, I photographed at five weddings that weren't my own. I started doing Little People Weeks, I photographed puppies, families, products, babies, cowboys and lots more. Twenty fifteen has been one hell of a year for me and twenty sixteen is looking to be even busier! I've already been booked to photograph eleven weddings next year! (I'm also booked for a twenty seventeen wedding already - Some people are extremely organised!) My hard work looks like it's starting to really pay off and the amount of work coming in is really starting to take momentum. No rest for the wicked though, thankfully! It is a job I enjoy enormously after all.
I want to thank each and every one of you that have hired me for work, worked with me on projects, given me amazing feedback, interacted with me in person and on social media as well. It means more than I could ever say. This is the one job I want and need to do, and all these things make this twenty four year old nerd stupidly happy!
I had a very well needed quiet and relaxing Christmas with my Husband and dog (Scampi) this year. My parents came over for Christmas dinner for the first time and spent the afternoon with us. I did a fair bit of baking in the lead up to Christmas, two batches of mince pies and gingerbread, along with a lemon meringue for Christmas dinner. Baking is oddly relaxing, I can slightly understand why people are addicted to The Great British Bake Off. Although I find the concept of crying about lost butter or over an exploding cheesecake less comprehensible.. has a cheesecake exploded yet?! I don't know I've only seen about four episodes a while back...
Whatever you got up to, I hope you enjoyed it.
I also hope you have a safe and happy new years, see you in twenty sixteen!
Love and stuff
P.S. If you got engaged over Christmas and want to go to a Wedding Fair to kick start your planning, come see me and many other Isle of Wight Wedding suppliers on January 24th at Medina Leisure centre in Newport - More info can be found here.
