Why is it SO HARD to decide what images belong on my walls of our house? Seriously – as a photographer I find it seriously embarassing that the walls of our house are so empty. I have big plans for them – but am so intimidated by the blank spaces. I think I feel an extraordinary responsibility to hang images that mean something to us. Images that tell a story in our short life history. Recently, I framed and matted this image that Katie took of us with Story on her first birthday…it seems to rise above the thousands of images we have in our life as one that means the world to me. I think it marks a big accomplishment in not only Story’s life – but Matt and I too…and the incredible journey that first year of Story’s life brought. Oh – and great joy. Real joy.
