july is a very difficult month for me in my job; this year was no exception. we had 2 events in 2 weeks. one was a fundraiser dinner at the melting pot, the other was our large golf tournament.
here are some pictures from the melting pot dinner, it was a lovely night of rain and we had the outdoor patio of course. but it was really fun none the less.

i don't remember much of august, aside from the fact that it should have been called "anguish". i turned 24 and it spurred a mini quarter-life crisis. then i was called to be secretary in my ward's Relief Society presidency. i coordinated a bridal shower after only ever being to one before. oh and maria and i won the 3-legged race at the family picnic sponsored by Partners.

i got back into the swing of things a little bit by september. i chopped my hair again at the end of august and got ombre highlights, thanks to my dear friend Kara. over labor day weekend i shot photos at the colorado balloon classic and went to the band of horses show. the show was much more fun than the classic. i learned a little bit about how not to treat volunteers. it was too windy in the morning to fly so i only have night glo pictures of the balloons.

i shot the fruit bats at the end of the month. honestly, not anywhere near the top of my best shows of 2011 list. and i apparently could not get my act together for shooting this show...
i shot to the damnwells, the head and the heart, it was my first time being a bridesmaid, and when i started this blog actually.
the damnwells show was actually at a bowling alley on south broadway. it took a while for me to get into it, but i found myself listening to their music quite a bit afterward.

with a large donation request mail campaign and a food drive, november takes a close second to july for roughest month work-wise. however, i got to shoot nathaniel rateliff, who is fantastic.
it was a wild, visually appealing year. december was no exception, kicking off immediately with a work holiday party on the 1st (no photos, haha). i only shot one show, but it was an awesome collection of local artists joshua novak, danielle ate the sandwich, and ian cooke and it was a gorgeous setting at a comedy club might have been a church in its previous life. i'll let those pictures speak for themselves.
in closing, 2011 wasn't too bad of a year. i took a lot more pictures than i thought! i look forward to 2012!
