Well, "year" is a loose term...we'll get to that later.

I've never really thought about doing this until this year.  Probably because my voice wasn't found, my vision wasn't there, and I had nothing really to boast about.  Things are different now.  I feel like my soul is oozing when I'm taking photos.  Even my daily 'grams are are a part of me.  I'm actually conscientious and overly thoughtful about every single shot.

I have two people named Josh and Meg ( to thank for that.  They awakened this passion within me and made me see who I want to be as an ARTIST.  Not a photographer, an artist.  Because what we do truly is an art, and it is often taken for granted or overlooked.

I'm proud to have jumped into the community of photographers this year, which I really used to avoid.  Maybe it's because I wasn't meeting the right photographers.  VSCO has opened that door for me, and I won't go on explaining what it is, but it really is a valuable part of my community and my work.

I seriously cannot wait to see where 2015 takes me.  I already have met some amazing couples and "the night is still young" so to speak.  There is nothing more I want to do than tell love stories.  Epic, emotional, unhinged romance.  it wakes something up inside of me, I am really a romantic person, and a sappy one at that..and the feeling I get when I get to capture that, is unreal.

I kind of cheated with this post...because I really feel like the "year" term isn't enough...because my "year" started when I changed to Made to be the fall of 2013.  So I cheated and included that here, because it needs to be.  This is such an overload of imagery, but #sorrynotsorry because you can never have too much of a good thing.


just the beginning, folks.  cheers!
