This year I am especially thankful for a wonderfully supportive family and boyfriend, my health, a place to call home, and a job that allows me to build my skills. I have had the opportunity to fulfill one of my life goals next month, but I could not have done it without the support of family, boyfriend and friends, a healthy body or my day job.

Meadow in Yosemite National Park

The above image is from my family reunion trip in Yosemite. I am thankful that our National Parks are open again, and I look forward to visiting more in 2014.

I have had a lot of opportunities in 2013, and I am thankful that I have learned something from every one that has come my way. I am excited to use what I have learned this year and implement it next year.

I am also thankful for those of you who have supported my photographic journey - through this blog, through photo sessions, through social media and in person. It means a lot that you have taken the time to look at the images that I have created and read the words that I have written. I hope you'll join me as my journey takes me to new and exciting places...I know that I cannot wait to share them with you.

Happy Thanksgiving!
