2016 // A Year in Review

Kate Roberge Photography | Queenstown Photographer

As I sit here (on the floor), trying my darnedest to sort out 2016 receipts, last photoshoots and all that business type stuff- I've started to reflect back on the past year. Although I'll be the first one to say it's been a pretty turbulent one, I have also had so many exciting things happen. 2016 was the most bipolar year I have EVER experienced. 

I have witnessed and been a part of so many beautiful, joyous and heartfelt moments. And yet, on the business end, have had many personal struggles. Everything from never being happy with branding to learning how the hell to write up a proper invoice. As an introverted creative type, those things called accounts and networking.. ya not too into it. It's taken a bi, but for the first time, I think I'm actually getting better at both.  I've learned lots, and in this new year- I have everything I need to ROCK IT!! 

I'm beyond ready for 2017, and as natives here in New Zealand often say say, "I'm not here to fuck spiders". With a new website in the works, new branding done and dusted and sessions already booking up, I am so ready. You've probably never met someone so ready. 2017 will bring travel, new friends and another interesting year of learning my way. I can't wait! 

Thank you to everyone who has been following along and been a part of 2016, especially to my amazing clients who have put their total trust in me to capture their special days. It has been amazing to not not document these moments but to also come out of it with new friends. Also, thank you to my partner Hamish, whom if I didn't thank him he would surely let me know. Thank you for helping be on the business side of things and for always keeping me some more down to earth than I would like. I couldn't do it without you, and you know that.  

To commemorate this year for what it's been, I thought I would include a few of my favourites from this year. Enjoy, and happy New Year! xx

 

Ps. I've tried to keep it to just a few
