Happy 2016! I hope you all were able to have a beautiful and relaxing holiday season with your family and friends. While we enjoyed every single second of the shopping (okay, maybe not EVERY second), the wrapping, baking, and visiting family, I have to admit – I was SO excited to get back into the swing of things with photography. I missed my adorable little clients. I missed all the planning for sessions. I even missed the editing!
We were blessed with a wonderfully busy 2015! We were welcomed into so many families on multiple wedding days and worked with the BEST brides and grooms. We met many new families as we photographed newly engaged couples, teeny tiny newborns, sweet sisters, bouncy brothers – and we LOVED photographing the many Christmas cards on tree farms this year. I can’t wait to see what all is in store for Sarah Mumper Photography in 2016!
Since this is the time of year where the photography workload slows down because of the cold weather – I made the decision to try something new. I’m going to get involved in Project 52. What’s that you ask? It’s my new photography project! Apart from my regular sessions that I’ll continue to share with you, I‘ll be sharing a picture a week for the entire year of 2016. The theme will vary from week to week but will be something revolving around my day, my interests, my fears, my joys, my creativity, my strengths, my weaknesses…..my life. I hope to step outside of my comfort zone, learn new techniques, and just have fun with it!
That all sounds great, right? I just have to stick with it!! This is the longest goal I’ve ever set for myself – I just hope it’s more successful than all the, “I’ll eat healthy all the time & exercise every day” goals I’ve set for myself countless times throughout the years :-p
So here it goes - Project 52, week 1. I thought, since I’m starting a new project, it would be appropriate to share an image from my last project. This past summer, I designed my first styled wedding shoot! It was sweet & simple and provided us with dramatic and gorgeous results. Soon, I will be sharing a full gallery of our wedding day in the falls. Yes, IN the falls. My bride & groom were so brave and up for everything I threw at them. Jason & Jami were still considered newly-weds when I asked them if they wanted to climb up and down Ricketts Glen State Park in wedding attire. J Just thinking about the whole day makes me want to go through the entire gallery again right now! BUT I have some other things to accomplish before I get there.
Well this is officially the longest post I’ve ever made. I hope you enjoy this journey as much as I do! Please feel free to follow along and leave comments along the way. I always love hearing from all of you! Have a wonderful evening!
