Those Last Few Moments

The New Year will be upon us in about 2 hours, more or less. You may be taking in this fact with great excitement and anticiaption at the coming of 2012, or maybe with a twinge of sadness at the loss of (wonderfully amazing) 2011, or perhaps with a bit of both. And so, whether you are swimming in a sea of 2011 memories or thinking of the wonders that 2012 may bring, I wanted to take a moment, before my 2011 blog archive closes, to wish you all a Happy New Year filled with many blessings and much happiness! For...

The Best of 2011

As I look back at 2011, at all those months and days lost in the realm of the past, I realize just how much I've grown in my photography this year. I've gone from simply taking 'snapshots' to really thinking about angles, and exposure, and all those other things we all stop to consider before shooting. And so, in honour of the dawn of 2011, as well as my photography growth, I have decided to share with you my favourite photos of this past year! So sit back, relax, and listen to this as you scroll down...


It's Safe by Westlife (I haven't listened to any of their other songs... yet, so I can't recommend them). My sister got Dolphin Tale for Christmas and this song has been stuck inside my head ever since I saw it. The movie is amazing by the way, you should definitely see it... if you haven't already!
