Have you broken any resolutions yet? Set new goals?

build your best year

Here's the thing about resolutions.  I break them.  I mean, not in the "oh screw it, it's been 4 days, gimme chocolate" kind of way, but more of a "oh, right. I fully intended to create time in my schedule do to things just for me and kept pushing that further and further back" so ...

Do you ever find that music moves you, even before you know why?

dad and me

Last weekend, while shooting a wedding, the groom danced with his mother to Celine Dion's "Because You Loved Me" which instantly brought tears to my eyes and memories flooding into my head.  You see, I danced with my dad to that very song at MY wedding, 9 years ago. I remember having chosen that particular ...
