I've been looking through my friends and colleagues end-of-year posts, seeing all the top-9 Instagram images, and the re-cap blog posts, and thinking about what I have to say about 2018. Lots of people post their favorite images. Some people post their most popular or well-known images.

For me, 2018 was a huge growth year. I went to a conference in April and a workshop in November. I started working on a long-term project. I did my first several portfolio reviews. I started shooting sports (with a few entertainment/news things thrown in) for Getty Images (where I started as an editor in 2017). I bought and started dabbling in 35mm film. I rebuilt my website here with Visura (and then a second one just last week for my mom). I finally insured all my gear -- after purchasing my workhorse 400 f/2.8. I was the runner-up in the Shoot Like Shirley award for female sports photographers under 30. I applied and was not accepted into Eddie Adams Workshop for the fourth and final time, but I learned a lot anyway. This year was the year I finally started investing, wholly, in myself and my photography, and finally cracked into what I really want to be doing. It's a great feeling, and I can't wait for what's to come in 2019.
