The Best of 2016 | Detroit Lakes, Fargo/Moorhead Portrait and Wedding Photographer

As we are in the last week of 2016, I am reflecting on the past year, looking at what worked, what didn't, taking some educational courses to make my life (hopefully) a better place and looking back on the images of 2016. I know this happens every year, but I truly believe 2016 has been one of my biggest growth years and part of that is due to not only years of experience compounding and working with awesome people but also taking that leap and investing in a few online courses that have really helped me identify a few little changes I can make for big impact.

So as 2017 is literally just a couple days away, I challenge you to also take a moment and reflect on what 2016 meant to you, what your accomplishments were and don't be afraid to make that investment in yourself this year, that something, whatever it is for you that will enrich your life, its worth it!
