About a year ago I sat down and wrote my hopes for 2013 . I am a dreamer & always eager to see what the future holds. It's amazing looking back at something you've written. It's even more thrilling to realize that I have accomplished a lot of my goals for last year! I think it's important to have goals because then you can always be working toward something that matters to you. It's even more powerful when you write goals down, or say them out loud. I am confident that 2014 will be one of the best years yet. This past year, one of my most important goals was met. I was (and still am) finding my photography voice and really narrowing down what I want to shoot. Working for my college newspaper in the past, I had the opportunity to photograph a variety of subjects which made it hard for me to narrow down what I really wanted to photograph. I am generally the happiest when my camera is in my hand. Through my internship this past summer & other recent events in my life, I've realized how much I enjoy shooting artists/musicians. I am eager to meet new faces, make new friendships & to work with many amazing people in the future. Here's to a happy, successful & creative next year! I hope you all take a risk, dream a lot & have a wonderful 2014!
