Most days I'm grateful for my career. I love people and taking pictures of them. I also love the outdoors and get to do quite a bit of nature photography. Sometimes however I get in a rut, loose my sense of wonderment and find myself working within too familiar a set of parameters. Hence, I decided I'd start photographing babies around their first birthday. I'm thankful for all the little smiles, questioning eyes, snot, giggles and cries. These little people are so human, miraculously so, and give me hope.
