I have so very many things to be thankful for, in my life in general, and also with my photography: the people I meet, the love stories I get to hear (and then tell through my images), and the relationships I make with the people I photograph – to name just a few!
So often, as I’m editing through a session or a wedding, I have the biggest smile on my face – maybe it’s a combination of the music I’m listening to and the moments on the screen in front of me, but I get all mushy and can’t help but smile. And be thankful.
Ariel & Armando have asked me to save their blog post for the New Year, as some of their engagement images might just find their way to friends and family as Christmas gifts, but they’ve allowed me to share one for now. So this is the image I chose – just a snippet of the joy, love, and laughter that surrounds these two when they are together. It’s the real, little moments like these that are always the closest to my heart.
