HAPPY 2015

December 31, 2014

It’s that time of year again, the time when everyone desperately vows to find or chase better versions of themselves. Last year, my resolution was to step in front of the camera a little more often in effort to capture more moments with Madison instead of always being behind the lens and while I certainly could have made more of an effort, I’m happy I stretched outside my comfort zone when I did to catch what have become some of my favorite pictures.

This year, I have a similar resolution or rather an add on to the one from last year. I want 2015 to be the year of the family picture. When looking back over the numerous photographs we have, there is an obvious shortage of images where all three of us are present. Going forward, I hope to remedy that even if it requires asking strangers to snap a shot here and there or scheduling more professional shoots. In doing so, maybe we’ll discover better versions of ourselves in the end.

Happy New Year!


For more random insights into this whole fatherhood journey of mine, follow me on Instagram where I (unintentionally) post more frequently than I do here. You know what they say, a picture is often worth a thousand words and I'm attempting to document our story as much as I can wherever I can.


  1. I have this same issue. We went on vacation. We returned with 122 pictures. I am in two of them. Unfortunately, the age of selfies makes me less likely to ask a stranger to take our picture, as it is now no longer commonplace. I, too, want to bring back that custom.

    1. Yes! I'm not a huge fan of the selfie so oftentimes when I see a group trying to take one, I'll offer to take the picture for them (especially if we're at an event somewhere) in hopes they'll return the favor. Selfies are fun, but it's nice to see the bigger picture sometimes.
