Thanksgiving Snapshots

I know it’s more common to look back at the year and reflect on December 31st. This year, though, it feels more appropriate to do it on this day that is so strongly associated with pausing to consider what we are thankful for. 

The more I dive into the world of photography, the more I find feelings of gratitude creeping up inside me.

For me, moments are easily forgotten. When I take a second to photograph that moment and then flip back through what I’ve captured, those memories instantly become real again. It’s as if I’m there. 

And I’m thankful all over again. 

I’ll let these images speak for themselves. They are simply moments from this year that fill me with all kinds of gratitude. Some involve travel, others are in our backyard. Some involve a hint of my work, others leisure, and many food. 

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do, and Happy Thanksgiving!
