This is my one of my dearest friends, Colleen. On her recent visit out to the Carolina’s, I stole her away for a day drive up the windy roads of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Through peak falls brilliant colors, framing the windy roads, rain drizzling on our eyelashes, fog masking the mountains, and Coldplay songs, we had “An adventure of a lifetime” laughing and stopping at random places to photograph one another. It was seriously one of my most favorite days I had last year. Here are a few favorites from what I took of her. Colleen is an actress, model, speaker and also known for her incredible voice overs.

Isn’t she gorgeous?
Here are a few she took of me….

This was really a sweet year for me! I think having kids and learning the balance of work, travel, parenting, sleeping… It’s all been a journey. I shot about twelve weddings this year, a bunch of families, and a hand full of engagement sessions. I also got to spend quite a bit of time in the mountains. I love shooting in new places and in places where nature is the element of beauty in a photograph.
In this collection of photos, I have also included my favorites from my 365 day photo project I did of my boys (you can see them all here) called “The Marvelous Mundane”. I feel like that was very much a part of learning this year, and also creating. When your stuck (or more like forced to be) in a house with your boys all day, every day and your forced to find beauty and something new in the mundane every day, that can be the greatest learning of everything you will do. It also does something inwardly to your heart when you look at your photos a year later. I’m continuing my project this year…
Thank you everyone who played a part in these photographs. You have touched my heart in a way that I cannot express. I’ve enjoyed working with everyone this year and I’ve enjoyed this journey of learning and creating. I’m looking forward to all that 2016 brings to me and my family!
