2014 in Review


2014 has been a year filled with photography and travel…Imagine that!  Comparing my 2013 in Review: jogging, biking, hiking, and a bit of water skiing continued to keep my over 55-year-old body lookin’ good, along with lots of new recipes and mostly healthy eating!

This year became more balanced with less play and more work…which means more money…hallelujah!  During the summer I worked part-time for a farm at their Fruit & Vegetable Stands (until my back couldn’t take it any more).

I’ve had over 20 photo shoots for my own business, “Sherry Lachelle Photography”…including baby photos…

I attended more parties, festivals, and events this year, but as a photographer for Cincinnati Refined.  I also became a Travel Writer with 12 published articles!!  My third job this year has been helping two separate retirees organize their paperwork and possessions.  The gentleman’s wife passed away this summer, and I took him out for a movie and popcorn.

Photographing 29 events for Cincinnati Refined, including…

December was spent in Cape Coral, Florida near Fort Myers on the Gulf side.  I drove down with two girlfriends, who stayed for a week and flew home, another girlfriend visited for three nights, and my husband is visiting now until we drive home after the holidays.  I’ve visited a few beaches…

  2. You’ve taken some great photos all year long, Sherry, and I certainly wish the best for you and your family in the coming year. I also hope your photography business takes off in 2015, as more people realize what a keen eye you have for subject matter, color, shadows, etc.
