The Best of 2017
I did not anticipate how difficult it would be for me to choose my favorite images from the year. These 95 photos are not even all of my favorite moments I was so blessed to capture. You will see most of my favorite moments have been candid, and full of laughs or people walking.
"You don't take a photograph, you make it."
"Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter."
"There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs."
I cannot believe I did not learn of and study Ansel Adams until 2016, when I started attending school for photography and media arts. His photos were and still are bold and artistic. When I first studied him, I took him as an inspiration of how I would like to approach photography. This past year, I learned that my inspiration does not need to be found in other great artists, but can be found in the people and scenery I am photographing. Thank you to EVERY one who trusted me this year to capture moments for them, and to everyone who helped me grow in my art, business, photography skills, and because of all these things, as a person.
