I cannot believe I am writing this on March 6, 2017 but there are SO many amazing images I made last year and so many awesome people I met along the way—I can't leave them behind without an awesome recap. 2016 proved to be the first big year of travel for SAP, including weddings and engagements in Chicago, New York, Asheville, Miami & Vermont. 2017 has even more destination weddings on the books.
I just returned from my annual trip to Kolkata, India, teaching empowering photography workshops for women. I am sitting at my newest adventure, STUDIO C, St. Augustine's greatest (and only!) co-working space for creatives. I am feeling so FULL of energy this year and in the words of my great friend, Sarah Symons (founder of the nonprofit Her Future Coalition), "you must take the time to see what you've accomplished before moving forward."
When people ask, "Where are you? Are you based in Vermont? Florida?" Guess what? I am wherever you need me to be and grateful for this time in my life that allows that freedom. As I sung loudly (and totally out of tune) at my friend's birthday on Friday, "I am like a bird, I only fly away..." It's what keeps all the creative juices flowing, y'all.
