What happened last year?
Everything blurs together and then suddenly focuses. Our son was born, and that was the end of life as we knew it and the beginning of something full of blessing. This is our Matthias, our gift of God, a few hours after he was born. Every time I look at this picture, I remember the pain and exhaustion of standing up, of holding my camera steady in the low hospital light, but the knowing that I would want to have taken this photo. And every time I look at this picture, I am so glad that I did. He's not wrinkly anymore, or red, and his hair is much lighter and he's twice as big, and sometimes this photo makes me want to cry. So maybe this is my favourite photo of 2014.
But that's not it. In 2014, I met so many amazing people, so many happy families that laughed together. I captured so much joy, and that is what I want to share with you below.
(Disclaimer: I tried to choose just a few favourite photos of 2014. Truly.)
