Here’s to New Beginnings…

I started this blog in the fall of 2011 when I was in the middle of myProject 365.  I started my Project 365 and life happened.  I learned things I didn’t know about my camera and myself, if truth be told. I found out I could take a mean photo if the stars aligned properly.

Since starting this blog, I have lost a friend, both of my parents, changed jobs, lost another job, started school, started a part-time portrait photography business, joined two photo clubs and a high school dance booster club.  I am also raising a beautiful, smart, active and funny 17 year old daughter.

Since the end of my Project 365 in 2012, I have kind of been lost when it comes to my blog.  In the past two years I have rarely blogged.  I haven’t had a lot of time for nature photo walks with everything else going on. I miss it.  I was at my happiest when I was blogging about my nature photography.  In 2015, I rarely had time to take the photos I love because I was so busy with portrait photography for extra cash. When push comes to shove, you gotta do what you gotta do.  Can’t go far on student loans, that’s for sure.

My plan for 2015 is to change that. I will be starting my 2nd year of school, and I now work a part-time job.  I don’t want to get so busy with my portrait photography that I lose touch of what I love to do most.  I love nature, birding, hiking, and photography, along with blogging about it. I really want to get back into doing what I love.  Photography has always been so therapeutic for me, and I know it won’t fail me now!   I have actually wiped out my entire archive and am going to start fresh! I have a New Year’s Day hike planned to start the new year off. Wish me luck.

Happy New Year!
