This last year was a year of growth, many trials, smiles, and changes. I decided in January 15' to set down my camera more often, to try and take in the views with my eyes vs my lens, and to enjoy the moment without any clicks separating each breath I took. The moments I did pick up my camera I tried to create something worthwhile and when I chose not to I sought to imprint the beautiful moments of life on my heart and mind vs. a digital file or social media. This was one of 5 photos I took in Moab, Utah during the GGBY Festival in November and it is my favorite from the trip. This year I'll be bringing my camera along more often, I hope it's a year of more growth and that it's filled with new inspiration, opportunities, and creativity.
