How is it a new year and a new decade?! Welcome to 2020, everyone! I spent my second holiday season in a row in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It's so hard being away from family and friends in America, but I filled my schedule with lots of photoshoots, petsitting for multiple families, and
spending time with good friends here.
Before I get into what my plans are for 2020, I wanted to do a quick recap on what an awesome year 2019 was! January to May I was based in Ho Chi Minh City; photographed at a beach resort in nearby Ho Tram; photographed for tons of expat families; photographed for a nonprofit in India for three weeks; and genuinely enjoyed life here in the city. May to September were back and forth between Wilmington, NC; Washington, DC; Alexandria, VA; and upstate New York. I was relocating pretty much every three weeks! All of October was in North Carolina to get my fill of family time before I went overseas again. Then, November and December were back in Ho Chi Minh City!
Enjoy the photos below; one for each month of 2019.
I'm so happy I was back in Vietnam for the holidays because it's such a busy time with photoshoots! I photographed a lot of repeat families, which makes me seriously so happy, but I met a ton of new clients as well. Below are just a few photos from my recent sessions.
And now on to 2020! These are my tentative and working plans with some serious goals thrown in!!
January - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
February - Mumbai/Kolkata/Manipur, India for a photo trip for a nonprofit
March - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
April - Ho Chi Minh City/Hanoi/Ha Long Bay, Vietnam
May - Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam & Rome/Tuscany/Venice, Italy
June - Wilmington, NC
July - Washington, DC
August - Washington, DC & Provincetown, MA
September - Washington, DC
October - Washington, DC & Wilmington, NC
November - Washington, DC & Wilmington, NC
December - Washington, DC & Wilmington, NC
So per usual, lots of bouncing around! But I'll be working with as many clients as I can in each location and trying to give advanced notice so we can plan accordingly. I'm also pushing to work with nonprofits and NGOs as much as possible and am so excited to go more in that direction.
Stay tuned for everything to come, and thanks for all your support!!
