It is currently midnight on the last day of the year. I can’t help but reflect on all of the ups and downs and the crazy roller coaster ride that was 2011. It was a year of craziness for me and I can’t wait to see what 2012 has in store for me and for Ali Smith Photography. Today completes my first official year in business and I can’t believe how far I’ve come. I want to say a big thank you to all of the wonderful clients I got to work with this year, including clients returning to me for a second and third time. Your loyalty means the absolute world to me. To know that your experience and images were so well received that you wanted to come back again and again. I am also so thankful for all of the amazing new friends I’ve made in this industry. I’ve gotten to know, meet, and even shoot with some of the photographers I admire so much. It has truly been such an awesome experience. I just simply cannot wait for more fun and more growth in the coming year. I can’t wait to further grow friendships and to meet even more new faces. I hope you are feeling excited for the coming year and I wish only great things for you all. Happy New Year!
As a “farewell” to 2011 and a “hello” to 2012, I thought it would be fun to do a “Best of 2011” post. Here I’ll share some of my favorites from the past year. I TRIED to narrow it down, but I just loved too many, so if you’re eyes hurt by the end of all of these photos, I apologize in advance. :) I got to do all types of sessions…from newborns to children to families, couples to seniors, boudoir to shoot-outs with other photographers. Talk about fun!
