A Year in Review

Time….it flies by so fast!  Everything is in a constant state of change, which is good I suppose.  It brings comfort to know during painful times that things will change and get better.  It is during those blissful times, though, you wish the moment would last longer.  You look adoringly at your children and wish they would quit growing up so fast.  On the other hand, it’s nice to know that dirty diapers and cleaning food out of your child’s hair after every feeding won’t last forever.  I suppose it is best we make the most of every moment, and realize the present moment is the most important since it is the only moment we have any control over.  How we live in the present affects how we view and learn from our past, as well as the outcome of our future.  I am truly blessed with so much in my life, and I am grateful for the opportunity God has given me to develop and use my talent in photography.  I am grateful for the individuals and families I’ve worked with over the years.  I know as I look back at little moments that have been captured in photographs of my own children I am thrilled at the fact I get to “re-live” those moments every time I look at those photographs.  It amazes me that a precious moment, a split second, can be frozen in time to be enjoyed over and over again.  I love photography.  I love the art of it, the practicality of it, the convenience and inconvenience of it.  I love memories and emotions it evokes, the stories it tells.  I love the process of it, the people involved with it, and most of all I love the joy it has brought into my life.  To all those I’ve worked with this last year, I hope it brought joy into your lives as well.  Thank you for letting me be a part of your lives.  Here is a slideshow I’ve put together consisting of 1-3 images from each of my sessions in 2011.
