2013 Year End Recap

What a year...What a year...What a year it has been for me. Looking back and reflecting this year, a lot has happened. More or less, the good has weighed out the bad and many opportunities and goals have been met. Some time last year, I promised myself that in 2013, I wanted to photograph twice the amount of events and weddings I did in 2012. Both goals have been met.

Besides working with a wedding company and labeling myself as a wedding photographer, I gained and built stronger friendships with people I wanted to keep in touch and work with. Especially in the sneaker community, I developed new friendships and relationships that helped me gain sneakers I could only imagine. Not to mention with restoring sneakers.

Working at Fullylaced, has been another great year. Besides the upsetting move during the summer, we managed to get through it and I wouldn't have it any other way with the team. Back in Fall 2010, it was the first semester at Academy of Art University San Francisco (AAU). It has been exactly three years and I'm halfway to graduating (I hope).

When reflecting on myself, I believe I have matured but learned more about myself especially. I know I'm getting better with taking photographs and still sticking to my short and long-term goals I planned out in 2009. All I needed was time and soon enough, I haven't looked back or regret the decisions I have made since 2009. I choose to follow and pursue my goals and dreams in the photography world and I have been happy since.

I see myself still learning, growing, and adapting to new things in the New Year. I have set goals and priorities that I planned a while back. I know I can meet those required goals if I stay focused like I did three years ago. With that being said, I can't wait to see what 2014 has in store for me. As always, enjoy. Cheers!
