2014 Year in Review


Almost one year to the day, I wrote out some loose goals for the year of 2014, the overriding theme of those goals was to be more intentional in both my personal and business life. Often times I’ll outline goals for a New Year, only to look back and discover I didn’t accomplish any of them, or completely forgot I ever made them in the first place. Well, this last year I can confidently say I lived 2014 with the word intentional at the forefront of my mind most days. 2014 will forever be marked as the year I went full time with Nicole Dianne Photography. It’s incredible how much I’ve learned both about myself and about running a business this last year. I’ve learned more about patience than I’d ever cared to know ;). I’ve learned that although working from home means showering after 3pm & wearing yoga pants most days, it also means more hours alone than I like & daily computer-screen induced headaches. I’ve learned to give and not expect in return. I’ve learned that office hours are necessary and important. I’ve learned that I truly can’t do this on my own, but only with the help and grace of Jesus.

To all of my amazing, funny, incredible, hilarious, beautiful clients: Y’all are my people! YOU made this business possible. If it wasn’t for you, I’d still be slingin’ coffee at your local Starbucks. Though I made a mean vanilla latte, I much prefer designing your wedding album. Thank you for trusting me to document your 2014 memories. No truer words have been spoken, I couldn’t do this with out you. I have the best of memories from each and every session this past year. You may or may not forget me someday, but I will truly never forget you. YOU made 2014 the year I went full-time. YOU made my dream come true in 2014, and for that I can never say thank you enough. I hope I have the pleasure of documenting more memories for you in the coming years, and whether or not that happens….let’s at least grab some coffee :) xo

During the father-daughter dance, Lindsey chose to surprise her dad with a compilation of home-videos from when Lindsey was a little girl…. I, along with every other guest was a puddle by the end ;).

This was my absolute favorite toss-exit item! Jill & David chose to use eco-friendly confetti that was filled with seeds. Instead of causing more waist in the environment, their confetti will sprout into little flowers this Spring!
