Here I go!

I have been telling myself for years that I was going to make a website. In fact, I think it's even made it onto my list of New Years resolutions more than once, which doesn't actually mean a whole lot cause that never gets me very far. The best way to get something done is to start when you are thinking about it. So here it is, better late than never! Nothing fancy, just my honest attempt to make a site where I can share my work with you.

Now that I can check the website off my list, I am going to replace it with blogging. I hope it doesn't take me as long to cultivate my blog as it took me to create my website. I've met a lot of inspiring people in Sacramento this past year and a half and having their support makes it much easier to trust my voice. 

I'm excited to share stories with you. Stories of people I meet, the people I get to work with, of the things I do and the experiences I have. I'll tell you about how I work and what photography has done for me.

I think my first story will be how I ended up here (the quick version). So until next time. I will leave you with a favorite quote of mine. 

Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it
