A Birthday for Me and A Teaser for You

Right now I am blogging with a cat in my lap, listening to the rain outside. Does life get any better than this? Maybe but this is pretty darn good!

This weekend is my birthday. 24 years old, which my mom says means that I am “well into my twenties.” Grrrrreat. I used to LOVE my birthday. Now I think I get that “adult” reaction to birthdays. I mean, they are okay but geez where is time going?! hehe 😉 I do have some fun things planned though! On Saturday we are seeing Mary Poppins at The Ahmanson and on Sunday I will hopefully get to go to Disneyland. But if it rains (which it better NOT) we won’t go.  😐  I am hoping the weather will cooperate! I’m  also proud of what I accomplished this year in my life. When I turned 23 I was a bride-to-be with a small little dream to start a photography business. I had NO clue where it would go or how I’d book a wedding. Now I am about to be 24. I am a MARRIED LADY and very happy about it! And my business is going pretty well for something that was just a twinkle in my eye one year before. This year I shot 8 weddings! Eight weddings, people! I’m really proud of that and proud of how much my work has grown over the year!!!  I hope 24 brings twice as many weddings and a whole lot of health, happiness, success and love to me and my family!

And now a teaser from wedding #8! Jenessa and Joel are superfab! Jenessa is Jenn King‘s sister, and Jenn had to double duty it as photographer AND maid-of-honor. So of  course she needed a little assistance! I was happy to join in and second shoot! It was a beautiful day and I got so many gorgeous pictures that I can’t wait to share…but for now I leave you with this….

  • s h e r r y - Gorgeous photo!! I love the wind in her hair; it’s like stopping time.

  • Cathy - Wow! Your work is amazing, especially for your first year of business! Congratulations on your success. Much like you, I was a bride who discovered a love of wedding photography through my own wedding, and became a wedding photographer the very next year. And now, my husband and I are finishing up our second year of business. I wish you success in the future, and, judging by your work and positive attitude, it won’t be hard for you to find. :)

  • Jenessa Christie - Ashleigh, you really did an outstanding job and got some really great photos! I can’t wait to see all of them!! Happy belated birthday!! You’re still well and young with many many years to live in your 20’s. :) Enjoy them!
