2016 was an incredible year. I learned more than I could have ever hoped or was prepared to learn. I discovered by true passions, I've made incredible friends, I am grateful for the traveling experiences I was given, and I learned to create my own photography style. As a photographer I truly believe that I can't take full credit for the pictures I produce, because there is a lot involved that is sometimes out of my control. God is my inspiration and creativity, and before each photoshoot I ask that God would be present and that his creativity would overwhelm the shoot. Models are a huge part of my photoshoots, so thank you to every wonderful friend of mine who has let me use their face for modeling :) One of the biggest aspects of photography that is out of my control is the lighting/sunset and the weather conditions. Let's just say sometimes I get blessed, Colorado is a beautiful state, and every now and then I get to take advantage of the heavenly views and sunsets, with people.
"One of the curses of living in such a fast-paced society is that we tend to take things for granted. We overlook everyday blessings, oblivious to the fact that life itself is a gift. And if we're not careful, we can find ourselves rushing through each day, less grateful, which is no way to live." -Jeff Goins
I find that photography helps me appreciate life's details. I live in a creative world, made by a creative God. There is so much yet to be discovered and so much beauty still left to find, these pictures below help me to remember that.
