2014 started off with a bang when I traveled to Paris in early February. The rest of the year surprised me with it’s share of ups and downs but overall I can classify the past twelve months as this–quality over quantity. I had fewer shoots and weddings which gave me the opportunity to use the rest of my time exploring some creative endeavors and reconnect with my work on a more intimate level. I feel ready to leave 2014 with what I’ve learned and enter the new year with a vigorous passion.
The following images are some of my personal favorites from client work as well as my time in Paris, Traverse City and Palm Springs. I am thankful for this year because I’m walking away from it with a tremendous amount of growth and a new sense of artistic freedom.
Here’s to sending 2014 off with good memories and beginning a new year with a new attitude.

I’ve known Ruth for a few years now, as we share a few mutual friends. However, I only met her in person for the first time when she came to Toledo from Fort Wayne for some actual face to face hang out time. Before that we communicated via social media. She is a photographer recently transplanted from Seattle to Fort Wayne. And not only that, but she’s a beauty and a true gem! I love making new friends via the internet. We spent a warm and windy autumn afternoon running around downtown Toledo for some portraits.
