it has been a hectic start to the new year. work definitely kicked in right when the holidays ended. and on top of that, some of my favorite people from allover happened to be in southern california.

there definitely was a lot on my plate and it was hard to juggle everything. i was working everyday and making very little time for the people that i haven’t seen in months, let alone years.

friends from santa cruz, petaluma, santa fe and torino italy all happened to convene in los angeles, all in the same weekend. it was a frenetic weekend squeezing work and friends together.

but i loved it! it was so great to see everyone! i felt so refreshed reminiscing over good food and good conversation. life can’t get any better than that!

“…it is important to do work that you care about and have a passion for, and then to get it out into the world in any venue possible. If the images are good and the work is meaningful to you, the high quality and passion will come through and clients will want to work with you. So doing work you’re passionate about not only feeds your soul, it turns out that it’s also good for your business.”

I truly believe that if you’re passionate enough about something and if you have the resolve to commit to it, then you can indubitably achieve it.

I understand the tradition of having new year’s resolutions, but why must it be the ‘new year’ for us to have purpose. If that must be the case, then let it be a new year everyday!

Lets be resolute in our ambitions and make everyday be a day of purposeful objective!
