“Be Content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.”-Lao Tzu

This past year has been full of so much growth and change for me not only as a Photographer but also in my personal life.  I have a feeling of amazing contentment. Something I have not felt often. As I work out the details for my projects and shoots for the season coming up, I am realizing that my dreams and goals are coming together. The feeling of a basic, fundamental happiness is soft and subtle. It allows me to breathe a little better. Letting go of the extra things in my life that have kept me in a negative frame of mind has helped. I know how to change my perspective of a subject behind my camera to get the results I want in a photograph. Being able to do this in day to day life is becoming easier.
