the warmth of your love
is like the warmth of the sun
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

don’t let go of my hand
now darkness has gone
and this will be our year
took a long time to come

-The Zombies

In 2010: I discovered my true passion – working with couples – and ventured into wedding photography.  (Something I never thought I’d do.)  I traveled… a lot.  I found myself in Puerto Rico; Antigua; St. Thomas; Tortola; St. Maarten; Portland, Oregon; North Carolina; Rome, Italy; Florence, Italy; Siena, Italy; Montalcino, Italy; and Mexico!  I got married, which was pretty much the greatest thing to ever happen to me.  I photographed my first destination wedding.  I made tons of new friends.  I went out and made things happen, with my business and with my life.  I changed and grew and figured out who the heck I’ve been trying to be for so many years.  I also failed… A LOT.  And learned a lot of important lessons.

In 2011:  I have so many goals.  Some of them are real, and some of them are silly, and some of them might not happen this year necessarily.  But I am aiming high in 2011.  I want to keep shooting, keep working with the best couples in the world.  I want to shoot another destination wedding.  I want to travel as much as I did last year.  I’d like to visit Iceland, San Francisco, Maine, and Bermuda.  I want to read more books.  I want to unplug more – my phone, my computer – and spend more time with my husband, without distractions.  I want to float in the ocean on a sunny day, somewhere in New England.  I want to run a half marathon.  I want to learn how to make perfect macarons.  I want to invest in a lot more gear.  I want to go to the top of the Empire State Building.  I want to have a wedding published on Style Me Pretty.  I want to try acupuncture.  I want to say yes to more things, but not feel bad about having to say no sometimes as well.  The list goes on and on and on…

Happy New Year, friends.  I hope 2011 is everything you hope for and more.  I have HUGE plans for Katie Jane Photography this year, so I hope you’ll come along for the ride.  xoxo
