It's still cold and snowy and I'm sitting at my desk (with a cup of tea and a blanket!) planning ahead and looking back - winter gives me lots of time to reminisce. 2014 was a great year: I photographed 25 events (a mix of weddings and bar or bat mitzvahs) and about 50 portrait sessions.
I love people and getting to capture so many people makes me happy. Even eight years later each and every experience is unique in some way and it becomes a part of me.
Here are a few peaks into behind the scenes throughout the year - I always stash photos of myself and Deana (my lovely second photographer) in a folder throughout the year. They're often fun, silly, and hold little memories of particular events. That's life. Keeping these memories of what we do, why we do it - and the fun along the way.
Enjoy! Here's to another year of documenting life!
With Gratitude and Joy, Melanie
