{Las Vegas Family Photographer | LJHolloway Photography} My 2015

Wow, I blinked and another year has come to a close.  2015 has been full of ups and downs – so much has happened both personally and professionally.  As a Las Vegas family photographer, I have been so blessed to capture the memories of my amazing clients, as well as those of my own family.  My oldest turned 18, graduated, and moved to Henderson – I am officially the mother to an adult child – yikes!  He is currently working and trying to figure out what he’d like to do with his life.  Calista got her driver’s license and is a junior in high school.  Damien started high school this year also.  I’m homeschooling all of my middle school aged and younger children.  The kids were busy with soccer all summer and fall.  We took two AMAZING road trips to Montana and Washington this summer – we visited my mom and dad, hiked, camped, fished, ate s’mores, stargazed, played in the Pacific ocean, and had many amazing adventures and created beautiful family memories.  We’ve decided we’d like to move to Montana sometime in the next few years – it’s stunningly beautiful and offers the secluded, quiet lifestyle in the wilderness we all crave.  We added a new family member to our brood – our Siberian kitty named Luna – she is like one of the kids and is so, so sweet!  On a sad note, I lost 2 early pregnancies this year – one baby due in December (my due date passed just 2 weeks ago) and another due on Leap Year.  I am happy to announce that I am again expecting a baby, this time a little girl due this spring.  I am 21 weeks now and things are going well – I am so thankful!  Pregnancy definitely gets tougher as you get older and this will be our last, so I’m trying to enjoy every minute of it (the heartburn, not so much).  No name for the little princess yet but we have several strong contenders. :)  My grandparents both celebrated their 90th birthdays this summer – I am so lucky to still have them!  My mom and dad spent Christmas with us – it was a wonderful time and has been an overwhelmingly positive year despite some sad and challenging times.

Photography-wise, I’ve made some big changes to my photography business.  I came back from a year long break from taking clients and am slowly integrating client work back into my schedule.  I missed it so much!  It’s been a wonderful year to be a Las Vegas family photographer and I am greatly looking forward to what 2016 brings, both personally and professionally.  Thank you to all of my family, friends, and clients who have supported me this year and throughout my journey, I am so appreciative.

I’d like to share with you a collection of some of my favorite images from 2015.  This is a random mixture of client work, creative shoots, and personal/family images.  Grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and check them out.  I enjoyed looking back on a year’s worth of work and putting this together to share with you.  If you’d like, you can check out my 2014 favorites HERE, and my 2013 favorites HERE.  :)  Happy New Year!  May your 2016 be full of abundant health, happiness, and prosperity!

{Las Vegas Child Photographer} My 2014 Top 25

Wow, I blinked and another year has passed.  What an amazing year it has been!  My oldest is now a senior in high school and will be off on his own in just a few short months.  The kids are all growing and changing so fast – I wish I could slow time down.  Gabriel is no longer a baby, but a busy and happy little toddler.  Everyone has grown so much this year!  We are currently in the process of purchasing the home we’ve lived in and loved up here in the mountains for the past 3 years.  We cannot wait to be homeowners again!  I made the very difficult decision about halfway through 2014 to take an indefinite break from client work in an effort to focus more on my own family.  I have no regrets – it’s been a wonderful year!  I am so excited to see what 2015 brings. :)

Normally, I put together collages sharing many favorites from the year, but this time, I decided to do things a little differently and choose my personal top 25 images of 2014 to share with you.  These are favorites for varying reasons – many are of my own children and some are not.  I love each and every one of them.  It is always so fun to go back through a year’s worth of work and see the growth and progress from previous years.  Speaking of which, you can check out my 2013 year in review HERE.  These are in no particular order – well, that’s not entirely true.  Image #1 is most definitely my top favorite for the year, but the rest are in random order.  Happy New Year everyone, and may you all have a healthy, happy, and prosperous 2015!  Bring it on!

{Las Vegas Newborn Photographer | Las Vegas Family Photographer} My 2013 | A Year in Review

As I sit here on Christmas Eve with a bunch of very excited littles, it’s hard to believe that another year has gone by.  My biggest highlight this year was without a doubt the birth of our 10th little one, Gabriel Lucas this past June.  I’ve made many wonderful new connections with people, and had an amazing year both personally and professionally.  I always have so much fun putting these together, and hope that I’ve shown growth from last year’s review.  I’m going into 2014 making some big changes as my family/business balance has been off kilter lately and I need to get things working right again for me and my family.  My hope is that these changes will afford me more time to do things on the home front.  I feel as though I’ve really refined my style this year, and want to push my creativity to new levels in the year to come.  I’m greatly looking forward to it, and already have so many exciting sessions and opportunities on the calendar for the New Year.  I’ve entered 3 prints in WPPI’s 16×20 print comp this year and cannot wait to see how those do – hopefully it’ll be a great way to kick off the New Year.

I’m warning you now, this is going to be long.  I went through my year’s worth of work, grabbed favorites, and put them into these collages. This is a mix of personal and client work, and is in no particular order at all.  My baby is in here a lot as he was such a big highlight of our 2013 year.  The kids are all a year older, and a year closer to being grown.  It goes by SO fast!  I’m amazed at what we have accomplished as a family.  Clint has his driver’s license now – oh my!  It seems like yesterday that he was Gabriel’s size!  If you have a few spare minutes, you can also check out my 2012 Favorites here.

Stay tuned for 2014 – I cannot wait to see where this journey takes me in the coming year. :)  Merry Christmas from my family to yours, and best wishes for a wonderful, happy, and healthy New Year for all!  Grab a cup of hot cocoa, and enjoy!  Thank you everyone for such a wonderful year!
