i’m embarking on a new project this year – i plan on posting a new photo every week in 2012. here’s number one. i’m part of a group of photographers doing this focus52 project. (click focus52 icon at the bottom of the page if you want to know more)

*new* is the word of the week for focus52. i’ve been thinking a lot about what that means to me.

*new* is often associated with *different* or *better*. one of my intentions this year is to observe and honor what is, without judging or trying to change it. maybe it’s an emotion, a sensation, a sound, a taste, another person, or even a relationship. the more i practice this, the more even familiar things look and feel *new* to me. it all depends on how i look at it, think about it…it all depends on my perspective.

very zen of me, huh? can you tell i went to yoga this morning!? ;)

so, here’s is to challenging myself to view things from *new* perspectives.

last weekend i had the honor and pleasure of taking erin, erik and hazel’s family portraits.  they are not only beautiful and so easy to work with, but also dear friends.  to say we had a blast would be a total understatement.  erin and erik are amazing parents and hazel is so heart-meltingly adorable.  she’s only one, but was so sunny and happy and, well, perfect for the entire photo session.  thanks again you three for being so great (and photogenic)!  xoxo…
