2014 Recap

Oh 2014, you had a whole lot of low sucky points. But of course, there were lots of great ones to balance it all out. Here's to 2015 hopefully blowing you outta the water.

Thank you all SO MUCH for supporting my love whether it is through booking sessions, likes, shares, word of mouth, handing out business cards, or whatever else it might be. I wouldn't be able to do this without every single one of you! I can't wait to see what's in store for 2015!

  1. Tristan,
    I am so happy for you! You have accomplished many wonderful things this year! I love that you girls from Emerson are still so close. You all exude happiness & kindness! I still tell stories about that wonderful group I had the pleasure of teaching! Thank you for sharing snapshots of your life!

    1. Oh Nicci that's awesome to hear that from you! I showed it to the girls and they loved it :) It's great that we all ended up so close. Must be from those great teachers we had :)
