Today, I celebrate 2 years of living in Canada (see my story for more photos from the last 2 years!). It’s been a wild ride in this mountain town. Life has changed dramatically since I got here, and there have been times I’ve lost myself along the way, but no more of that. My focus for the next little while is going to be about reconnecting to who I am outside of all the noise; about rediscovering what lights me up. Reminding myself that happiness is not an absence of stress or adversity; being happy is a choice we all make in little moments, all day, every day. It’s up to us to handle what life throws our way with grace & gratitude.⠀ ⠀ Photo: last year in Squamish, taken by my cousin @thejooligan.
Canada: so beautiful, it often looks fake. With the blizzards hitting the Bow Valley the last few days, I’m dreaming of more summer journeys to glacial-fed lakes...
Thanks to all my 2018 couples & clients for helping me continue to do what I love! Some of you may not know that I have only been in Canada for 2 years, and I am currently awaiting permanent residency. I hope to establish myself as a full-time photographer here one day, and I absolutely could not do this without you! If you need a wedding captured, or simply some photographs to celebrate the person, family, newborn or fur-baby you love, get in touch at email@example.com. I'd love to make 2019 my best year as a photographer yet.⠀
When only an avalanche pierces the empty silence all around. Avalanche conditions in the Rockies are strong this weekend after these last couple of days of snowfall—make sensible decisions if you're getting out there, friends!
It’s going to be a great year.
