Wrapping up 2019…
I always pause at the end of a year and try to take it all in. And while I enjoy the Christmas holidays, I am much happier in general in that space between Christmas and the New Year. However cliche, I enjoy the promise a new year brings. I welcome the reflection and also the opportunities to change things up, to rework old systems…to see differently. Somehow a calendar year turning over more easily provides this space for me.A new year brings with it an excitement of what might be. I love life and I’m definitely one of those glass half-full folks so no matter how good or crappy a year was, I am able to be grateful for my health and the health of my family and friends- I’m grateful each day I get to take a breath and to be surrounded in people doing meaningful things with their lives. Y’all are amazing. Y’all inspire me. Thank you.
2019 was a year of growing, shifting, regrouping, reevaluating, and that never ending pursuit of balancing. The struggle is real in self employment And in all of that, our kids are turning into adults and so many changes come with that. I have to keep pinching myself that over the last two decades in the Sierra foothills I have been able to create and build a career as a photographer. Capturing life in my camera is a passion. Some years have definitely been easier than others but I am continually humbled and grateful for the quality people I have had the honor of working with, both by my side and in front of my camera.
Happy 2020- may it bring us all peace, love and understanding. We need it. And what’s so funny about it anyway?
Here are some of my favorite images from the last year. Many thanks to my friends and colleagues Michelle Carter and Erin Bialy Miller – super talented photographers whom I have had the honor and pleasure of working with. In this collection, Erin captured the black and white image with the mirrors and Michelle captured the black and white of the groomsmen in the clouds. ❤️
