I've spent the last few days sifting, sorting, uploading, and rearranging some of our favorite images from 2013. As I've been doing that, I've noticed patterns I hadn't seen before. Patterns of movement and silence... moments of quiet anticipation and of unbridled emotion. The just before moments of a son launching into his father's arms or a bride tapping her groom's shoulder. The just after moments when a laugh first explodes.
Sometimes life moves so fast. And other times, it moves in 1/1000th second increments and we can see it frame by frame.
Joy. Anticipation. Solitude. Growth. Wonder. Love. Curiosity.
All right in front of us.
If we slow down to see it.
2013. It all of its beauty.
To each person who has graciously stepped in front of our lenses and invited us into their stories - we thank you.
