AYear in Review – 2013 – Happy New Year 2014!

Year in Review 2013, Happy New Year 2014!

Happy New Year! 2013 was such a full year for me, and I am looking forward to plunging into 2014 full force! To help myself remember 2013 I am posting a year in review of photos!

I feel like each of us should have a photo journal, memories are so delicate. Our lives are so full, please put memories on your wall in 2014. After my recent move from Chicago to Los Angeles, plastering my walls with memories is one of my biggest goals for 2014!

One of my favorite memories from 2013, my family in the Philippines!

Yes, that is what I look like! I don’t post many photos of myself on my site, so now you all know. I’m a short little ginger with green eyes and pale skin, and the rest of my family are tall and tan! Special thanks to Kelli for taking my camera off my hands and shooting this for us!

And here is my year of work in review!

There is one line of photos from every shoot commissioned by me in 2013 except those commissioned between 12/19 and 12/31 (4 shoots total, don’t worry I will post them soon enough!).

  1. I absolutely love your images Liesl. They’re so interesting, and vibrant, and I love your use of leading lines. Took me a while to actually scroll the whole way down :)
