2021 was a real one.

I kind of fell off the face of the earth from a blogging perspective in September. The whole last quarter of the year was a blur for me, really; between remodeling our barn, one of our silos starting on fire in October, and wading through the fog and fatigue of burnout and first trimester exhaustion (surprise!), it was all I could do just to get through each day and all its projects. Unfortunately, that also meant I fell behind on posting a lot of people's sessions on social media. That makes me sad because there were a lot of beautiful moments captured forever in time that the rest of the world missed out on, but I really was in survival mode.

Anyway, I'll let the pictures do the talking. I'm so grateful to have had an incredible year. 2022 may look a little different with a baby coming in May, but it'll be even better yet. Thank you all so much for your business, friendship, and support.
