2015 - When it comes to summing up an entire year in a short paragraph...you suddenly become aware of the value of each word you use to describe it. You think of the people you met, the people you love, the experiences you have felt close to your heart, and the experience in which you hope to not have again. We all have those, thats life. One thing I have learned in 2015 is how important it is to be persistent but patient on the path to accomplishing goals that you set forth. It comes down to faith. Anything that snags you along the way, is really just an educational experience, although they can be frustrating and cause stress.... the next time you will know how to do it better, faster, and more efficiently than before, and really, thats what's so awesome about life. Learn to ask others for help, but importantly, learn to listen. Learn to say no if it is not going to add value to what you believe in... and more importantly, have a purpose in what you do.
Being able to photograph people in love is truly an amazing thing. I don't say that because it is something I do, or want people to think that its cool, but it is an experience in which you feel all kinds of awesome emotions, from all over the board....and for me, to be able to be there to capture it happening for people is the purpose of why I do what I love. I really truly want people to have super, fun, cool, awesome photographs of them in love... surrounded by their loved ones. I am thankful beyond words for each and every person I get to meet, work with, talk with, dream with, photograph with, collaborate with... honestly I hold the utmost gratitude for those who have supported me throughout my endeavors. I wish I could hug all of you and give you a huge high five and bring you to lunch.Read More
