Guess what I got to do on Christmas Day?

My favorite thing in the whole, wide world: an engagement session. Even better? It was for my brother and my soon-to-be sister-in-law!

It was a short one due to the lighting and the December chill and the busy day, but it was so much fun. :)

merry christmas and a happy new year

It was crisp and sunny and the whole world sparkled. I took my sister and brother riding and I gave my horse a head massage. The mountain stood stark, white, somber against the sky. Beautiful.

Twenty fourteen. It was good. I didn’t really make any resolutions, yet I made memories. I accomplished important things.

I got married. I wrote a book (the first draft anyway). I read the Bible in 180 days. I photographed a wedding, an engagement, four seniors, and a maternity. I got my resting heart rate down to 56. I taught myself Photoshop (well, a small percentage of the many things it can do). I took a business and marketing class. I got two kittens.

I spent it with Jesus, in awe.

For 2015, I hope there will be just as much life and light and joy. I hope there will be new goals met in my photography business, my writing, my health. I look forward to following Jesus next to my husband into our second year of marriage. It will be good.

Happy new year. :)

happy december

I’m on the tail end of a really nasty sickness as December is ushered in with glorious sunshine and twenty degree nights. Here are two pictures from my Thanksgiving weekend—the first, taken as Sam and I drove away from my beautiful Klickitat Valley on our way home from the holiday feasting with my family; the second, God’s glory painted on the skies over the farm a day earlier. I stand in awe, I see myself as I am and I repent in dust and ashes. I’m thankful for the grace of God.
