2016 in Review!

2016 was a year of growth for me, both as an artist, and as a person. I found a little more of my voice through the camera, shooting a variety of assignments, and working closely with some amazing couples. I learned how valuable it is to always have a camera with you (iPhone), for capturing those random moments that stand out in the end (one of my favorite photos of 2016 (seen above) was taken with an iPhone after some heavy rain). I learned the importance of being a mediator, the benefits of running every week, and the joy of traveling with people who mean the world to me. I also learned the importance of being grateful on a daily basis, because no matter where you are in life, someone always has it rougher. In no particular order, here are some highlights from 2016!
