two thousand & nine | Portraits.

Posted by Samantha Clarke | Under:

It is new years eve and the final day of 2009. The old year has been a great one that has gone by way too fast!

Not too long ago, I decided that my passion for photography should be channeled into something more. With a few nudges from some very important people, I was able to believe in myself and try something new. I developed my website, and my blog, After 3 months, I've covered a total of 14 portrait sessions and 5 events and I currently have 254 Facebook Fans! I was also able to complete the first semester of my Masters degree simultaneously. That's right, I'm also a grad student and I'm not studying photography. However my program is so grueling that I'm thinking maybe I should have!

Most importantly, I'm writing all this because I believe that you can't set goals without first acknowledging your point of reference. I've come a long way and thank each and every one of you for your support thus far. I also recognize that I have a LONG way to go. Instead of making a frivolous resolution I've decided to make a vision board of my personal, academic, and business goals for 2010. I'm actually really looking forward to creating a tangible piece with my goals on it and pretty pictures to match. Stay tuned, I'll make a blog post out of it!

In the mean time, here is a countdown of 10 black and white portraits that I captured during this fabulous year.











Enjoy and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
