Super Sparkly NYE

Ringing in the New Year has always been one of my favorite times of year, and this year was no exception! Reese and I rang in 2013 with some great friends at the Hyatt Houston!

While we were in downtown Houston I decided to kill two birds with one stone and pick up a new lens, a 85mm f 1.8! While the others were at dinner I (aka Reese) had a little bit of fun playing with my new toy!

I hate the idea of New Years resolutions, but I do believe in making goals and improving life!
Here are a few of my goals and life improvements for 2013 

-Capture MY life though my lens
-Continue to grow my business 
- Work on my posture (yall its BAD) 
- Buy a new car
- Reach 500 followers 
- Start Volunteering some where 
-Find a small group

With my first goal in mind I set out to capture NYE though my lens! I have realized that small moments in between the big stuff are my favorites. These are the moments that make life memorable, the laughter, the sparkle, the stolen kisses.

Happy 2013 friends!

Happy New Year, love! You looked absolutely stunning for NYE, but I shouldn't be surprised, because you're gorgeous when you're in jeans. I love the photos of you at the window (first photo) and of you on the bed looking at your iPhone (third photo)!

I am in love with your dress! Your 'resolution list' is so similar to mine! I don't really believe in NY resolutions, but self-improvement lists are kind of refreshing!

Love the sparkle of your dress & champagne glass...eeee :)

I'm STOKED for you to capture your life through your lens, because well, I live kinda far and need a way to stalk you.
