Goodbye 2017!

Hello everyone! It's the last blog post of 2017, and both Katie and myself are checking in for this one! We wanted to share our thoughts on 2017, what we loved, what we're excited for in 2018, and how our year went as a business! We also wanted to share some of our favorite images from our first official year as K&L Photography! 

Hey guys, Liana here, first up! Personally, 2017 was a year of growth. I started the year out a little lost, but quickly found my way back to the person I truly am. I got back into exercising, running, and going to the gym. I ran a 6K and a 5K, setting a PR with the 6K and managing a fairly decent time for the 5K even with allergies killing me haha. I spent time with a lot of great friends, became an aunt, and started volunteering at the Humane Society of Missouri as a dog walker. Let me tell you, walking those dogs every week has made me feel so much better. I love knowing that I am helping them see the outdoors more and get some exercise. As you all know, the most recent change in 2017 has been my acceptance of a job at the Grand Canyon!

Jumping into what I'm excited for in 2018, that job and the ability to travel is at the top of the list. I'm thrilled for the weddings we have, the new clients we'll meet, and the memories we'll capture! I can't wait to watch my niece Ember grow, and celebrate all the milestones that come within the first year! I'm also ready to accept any new challenges that come my way. I'm thrilled to have Katie back in the business and photographing the 2018 weddings we have with her! 

Here are a few of our favorite photos from this past year! We always love going back and looking at all of the amazing sessions we've had <3 

Hello, everyone! Katie here, and I am just as excited about 2018 as I was about 2017. This last year was the best one yet, as most of you know my daughter Ember was born. We found out we were expecting her in February,  so 2017 had a great start. And then in November my husband, Beau and I bought our first house, so we definitely ended the year on a great note! I’m most excited to see how Ember grows this next year, she’s already changed so much in just 2 months! I’m also looking forward to our family vacation in July to Dauphin Island, Alabama. Very excited to be spending a few days on the beach! Beau and I are looking forward to making our house a home, and tackling our first year as parents together! Each one will be an adventure itself.

Also in 2018, I’m looking forward to all the photo shoots and weddings within this next year with the best business partner and one of my best friends, Liana. I’m so thankful to have her as a business partner, she has worked SO HARD this year with me having Ember and buying a house and everything in between. While I’ll miss her being a few hours away and the random weekend visits soon, I’m very excited for her to begin this new journey in her life and wish her all the best. I know we’ll have many FaceTime dates in our future. 

I hope 2017 treated you well, and that 2018 will be one of the best yet for all of you!
