Everything about 2015 was highs. The only real low was exhaustion, as evidenced by the fact that I’ve gotten two separate viruses since I’ve started my little winter break. My brain is so grateful for the break that early winter provides.

In the past year I traveled to four different countries and 14 different states. I rode an elephant and a gondola and too many airplanes (I hate flying). I watched two elopements and 20-something other weddings and tried to remember a shoot-ton of bridesmaids names. I’ve cried during best man toasts and sparkler exits, and I’ve sat in utter gratitude that people choose to invite me into their lives like this.

I’m using this break to explore more personal work and to create again for creativity’s sake. I’m going to go skiing and do my taxes and edit a lot and shoot things that I want to. Bring it on, 2016. I like ya already.

This song is basically the soundtrack of my life in general, so I’ll make it the soundtrack of my most exciting year yet.

This was my year.

I’m so in love with your work, Allison. It’s stunning. And I totally played your song while I looked through. James Taylor for life! Hope to connect sometime in Bend 🙂

Brilliant. Lovely. That elephant shot – on point. All the shots – on point. Congrats, friend!
