Oh I love making this post! The year can go by in such a blur, in a mix of scheduling and shooting, constant editing and blog post creating that I can forget how many incredible families, couples and seniors I have in front of my camera over the year! It is so much fun to go back through my shoots from the year and really appreciate all of the memories we have captured together. Also, I love to see the transitions between seasons. Michigan can have me cursing my weather app some days, but the sun, rain, snow and wind make for such fun and creative images. I wouldn’t want it any other way!
This post could go on for ages, and I wish I could include a picture from every single session! But here it is- some of my very favorite highlights from 2017. It was a sweet year, with a whole lot of growth for my little business, I made investments back into my business, found an editing style that feels more my own, and Ted began shooting weddings with me. This year I learned the importance of working smarter and more efficiently, and taking time to rest and recharge. 2017 has been my favorite year for Caryn Ashley Photography, and I cannot wait to see where 2018 takes us! From the very bottom of my heart- thank you so much to each and everyone of you for being a part of it- I can’t imagine life without this community of ours! Cheers to a happy and healthy New Year with all sorts of new memories to capture together!
