HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

2013 was the year of announcements for La Brisa. Brisa and I announced that we were moving to Tucson, AZ. B announced that she was starting her own path with www.justbphoto.com and we could not be more excited for her! We announced the launch of a new website. And we announced the addition of Sarah to the La Brisa Team!

Thank you. To all of our clients, supporters and encouragers, thank you. All of our successes are because of you. You unselfishly give us a platform that enables us to showcase our true personalities and you trust our individual creativity. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for everything that you do for us.

We are planning on making Photography For a Cause even bigger this year by asking our talented photographer friends to join us! Our goal will be to raise $3k to donate to local and national non-profit organizations.

Recently, we started (again) our weekly photo project, 52 Weeks of Awesomeness, and hope you are enjoying our images and participating with us!

For 2014, our goal is to be better photographers. From experience, education and practice, we want to offer a better experience and better images to our clients. Autumn and Sarah already have more weddings scheduled than they have ever photographed in the past. I will be focusing on growing my client network in the Tucson/Phoenix/Scottsdale areas. And together, we will keep each other accountable and perpetually push ourselves to be better.
