2019 Recap

2019 was a whirlwind of a year, but easily my favorite of the past 24. I love photographs and the memories they capture, but I don't think any amount of pictures could explain the highs and the lows, the abundance of joy, the lessons learned, and God's faithfulness along the way.

Nevertheless, there were many, many fantastic memories preserved this year through photos, and I'm so excited to share some of my favorites!
