a new year!

happy new year! i can’t believe that it is already 2012! i am so excited for this new year and all that it has to offer. there were some oh so awesome things in 2011 that i need to highlight:

– leland celebrated his first birthday & started walking (as a mom, this is a huge highlight) :)

– my photography business grew and for that i am thankful!

– in 2011, i started an LLC for my business

– jay got a new position at work

– we settled into our first year in our home

– i met one of my favorite photographers, shelley paulson

– my new website was launched

– jay and i celebrated 2 years of marriage!

2012 is going to be a great year. this year, i will be using this blog primarily as a personal blog. i might even add sponsors again (yay!) however, i am going to continue posting each new session on my website and keep it constantly updated with new weddings, engagements, etc. i hope that you all have a blessed new year’s day…i am so thankful for each of you! much love.

Hi Arielle – I’ve been following your blog since Shelley took your photos in 2011 – what an inspiration you are – thank you for the love, gifts and encouragement you share with all of us through your blog. Praying 2012 is full of growth in every area of your life.
Ps – love your grey & white striped top – can I ask where you bought it?

First of all, I want to steal your wardrobe. Watch out. ;)

Second of all, you are such an inspiration! Seeing how much you’ve grown in your own business only encourages me to really go for everything I want to do with my creativity. So, I’m thankful for that.

Hope the year ahead only brings more blessings to you and your sweet family!


thank you so much!! that is always so, so encouraging! I hope you and your adorable family have a wonderful new year as well!! :)
