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.

Happy Thanksgiving

 

While this year has looked nothing like I expected or even desired really (except you Paris and Palm Springs) it’s been a year of tremendous growth, unexpected lessons and the pursuit of creative passion. I am thankful for the highs and lows and unanswered questions of 2014, because without them all there would be no moving forward.

There is much to be thankful for (especially another year of wonderful clients, old + new.) Cheers ! And Happy Thanksgiving, ya’ll.
