peace.

i recently participated (along with some 300+ photographers!) in a thanksgiving inspired photo contest to express that which i was most thankful for this year.

this was a difficult challenge, especially when i feel so lucky and so thankful for so many things in my life.
foremost i am thankful for all the opportunities that i have been given to grow my career as a photographer because of all my clients and fellow photographers who believed in my talent. every day i feel so lucky for each opportunity to meet incredible people and document their lives and the moments most important to them.

i am also thankful for the amazing, supportive, encouraging people in my life – my family and friends truly enhance my life in way i can’t even begin to describe.

but for this contest i immediately thought of a photo i snapped last week in pacific beach, while out in san diego…

for while i am incredibly thankful for all that i am able to do, i am eternally grateful for the inspiring actions of the people who are working to change the world for the better – the citizens of the world who devote their lives to others and who sacrifice their individual comfort for the comfort of many.

and so, i am most thankful for all the people working for PEACE in the world.
