These past few days have been an unexpected whirlwind as I've said goodbye to some of the most incredible people that I've called colleagues for the past three years. Sometimes, I find myself wishing that things never had to change - but then I catch myself and realize that I don't really wish this at all. I've never known what it's like to stay still and content. My heart's song has always been an unpaved road, each turn just past the horizon of seeing. I stray, I tumble. I'm terrified. I started to type here I've decided to quit my job and pursue photography full-time.. but the truth is this was never much of a decision at all. Just as my lungs choose air and the sun chooses to rise, a part of me has been rehearsing these words for a very long time. Having the chance, the faith, and the support to pursue my greatest passion is an awesome meeting of circumstances that I will eternally be grateful for. I am humbled beyond words by the excitement and encouragement I have received through the simple act of taking photos. I have no idea what lies beyond, but knowing that the road isn't easy - that there will be inevitable heartache and challenge and doubt, just as there will be joy and freedom and CHOICE - I vow to practice gratitude first. It's been my New Year's resolution to start each day with a thankful mind, and if there's anything for certain in this wild and shaky world, it's this: I have always found happiness and purpose by listening to my heart, and I am so, so thankful that I am able to take this to the next step now. The heart always finds the bigger picture. Thank you everyone for your love and support. 2017, I'm all in. #thankyou #thankyou #thankyou 📷 by @syeungphoto
about to pop on my headphones and crank out a new blog post ☺️ thank goodness for Spotify and curated playlists! and for cooking enough dinner last night to carry us through at least two more days of leftovers. small domestic wins, but every little bit counts. hope everyone is having a cozy night! happy almost Friday!
some delightful paperie by @rachelbrewer from our #southernorchards shoot. these light colors and barely-there envelopes make me think of the emerging of spring spring spring in the midst of all this rain rain rain (go away). visiting a newborn after work today and that's the highlight of my Wednesday 👶🏻
