Happy New Year!!!
Lets face it, photographers love their iPhones too and I know I'm guilty of capturing quite a few personal moments via my mobile device versus DSLR camera. This post is simply a big mosaic of 2017 highlights in my personal life... digital noise, VSCO filters, imperfection and all.
Ayden's first time on a plane + both of our first times to Florida:
Graduation from Northern Michigan University with a degree in Biology and photo minor. It was bittersweet leaving NMU's The North Wind as photo editor as well!
Dustin came into our lives!
MQT life... lots of biking, Lake Superior, rock climbing, froyo dates, + TuesdaysTogether meetings...
Mini road trip downstate featuring stops along US2, in Traverse City, + Bay City area.
The year of pneumonia + food poisoning...
Fun fact: I haven't been sick since being done with school!
We dirt biked:
We moved in with Dustin in Baraga! It feels good to be home.
Ayden started school at Sacred Heart - where I went to school K-6!
We camped in the Keweenaw:
Going to the Huron Islands for the first time!
I met Al Roker while working for NMU's The North Wind!
We climbed more Michigan Mountains:
Dustin + I went to a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert and I showed him around my birthplace of Kalamazoo:
My mom, dad, Ayden, and I explored Minnesota's North Shore:
Dustin + I took on Arizona between second shooting gigs with Vienna Glenn Photography. We explored Walnut Canyon, climbed Cathedral Rock + Mount Elden, broke through the crowd of people at Horseshoe bend, and Papago Park. There'll be a separate blog post about this ;)
Bryana + I road tripped across England + Scotland!!!! We met Ryan Muirhead, I ate so much salmon it weirded out Bryana, + Bryana fulfilled Harry Potter dreams:
Ayden started playing hockey:
Twin Cities wedding shenanigans with my good friend, Jessica! Folks, we drank wine on a mini train:
