Besides the world supposed to be ending I had a pretty rough year. At the beginning I was living with my brother and sister - in - law and really didn't have much going for me at the time. I finally moved back to Nashville, but still I had to crash on a friends couch for around 4 months before I finally got my feet on the ground.
My living situation wasn't the only bad thing, I repeatedly got my feelings stomped on by someone, and then eventually got my heart broken a couple weeks ago. Medical problems including getting Bell's Palsy in the summer was not the highlight of my year.
It seemed that every time something good happened at least 3 bad things happened right after.
2012 wasn't all bad though. I got my jewelry into several different shops all over the country. I got to fly for the first time, and visit California for the first time. I found my own personal happy place with Venice Beach, and where I eventually want to live. I've also made some of the most amazing friends in the past couple months, and picked up, what I believe, will be my career with photography.
I'm just hoping that all the hardships from the past year will correct themselves in the new year.
I was able to go home last weekend to do Christmas with part of my family, and of course see my nephew. I did some of Jhett's 4 month pictures, and I swear I think he might be the prettiest baby in the world ( Am I allowed to say a baby boy is pretty? ). Other photographers really aren't kidding when they say this is the hardest age to photograph. He was moving so much, and HATED being turned over on his belly. I've honestly never seen a baby hate tummy time before him. Nevertheless, he is amazing, and he's actually made me want to have my own children.
