Happy New Year to all my loyal blog readers!  I hope you all had a happy celebration.
I rang in the new year at Kelly & Mikes wedding at the Franklin Institute.  Was my first new years wedding and it was great to be a part of the party.Joy Moody, Franklin Institute New Years WeddingI’m not one that is much for resolutions but I do have some goals and reflections.
2011 was a great year and a heartbreaking year for me. I’ve learned a lot and grown a lot this past year.  I’m excited to move on to 2012.

One of the things I haven’t done enough of is create images for myself. Its one of my goals for 2012.  I love going out to shoot landscapes, urban landscapes and just candid street photography. I haven’t done that for myself in a long time and in 2012 I am going to take some time to do that on a regular basis. A lot of you have requested an art gallery that you can purchase my art prints from and I will have that in place and available this year.

I have a lot of plans for the business as well.  I realized this year that I spend too much time in front of the computer. Its hard to let go of certain things when your work is so personal but I’ve been putting a few things in place that won’t make handing these things over so hard. I let myself get so busy that I didn’t have time for family and friends. These things are very important to me so its a number one priority in 2012.

I ran my first 5k in November and I plan on running more in 2012.  It was a great experience and sense of accomplishment. I used to hate running, who knew?

2012 I am excited to see you on my doorstep.  You are a welcome sight.  Its going to be a great year, I have a lot planned for you.

Below are some of my personal images, I hope to share many more with you in the future.
Happy New Year everyone!
