new beginnings...

Look at us… posting on time… how about that for new beginnings?
So we all know that with the first of the new year, comes new hopes & dreams…
Some make resolutions, try to be a better version of themselves.
With that comes healthier habits, perhaps with the idea of weight loss… 
So let's just say my original idea happened to involve a scale. 
But sometimes things just don't quite work out the way you see it in your head.
Not to fret, because as I lay there trying to get my perfect shot… 
I see a stack of my old wedding photos out of the corner of my eye.
I know, perfect for new beginnings, right?
And considering my first idea wasn't working… 
If you don't succeed, try try again.
So on to idea number two.

week twenty-four :: new beginnings

And even though it was some time ago for me… it was a new beginning in more ways than the obvious.  You see, if I had to pinpoint when my love for photography started… the first thought that comes to mind was how much my wedding photographer {Lynn Timmons} inspired me.  In a time when everyone was doing posed & saying cheese… he also placed a lot of focus on candid & detail shots.  All the important things… because I didn't just want to remember what we looked like.  I wanted to remember what we were feeling in those moments.

I went on to major in Design, but that photography bug stuck with me…
I can honestly say, I never would have imagined I'd be where I am today.
I consider myself incredibly lucky to be surrounded by people
that support me & push me forward.
Because I get to enjoy one of my passions in life,
creating memories for myself & for others.
And for that I am truly grateful.
