This shoot with Laurin was the first one of 2014. I have to admit, I was a little nervous. I took a break from photography while I was home for the holidays. Last year was pretty crazy and overwhelming for me, but I'm going into 2014 with so much more knowledge and strength than last year. I've realized that my toughest battle is with myself, and if I can control my thoughts and stay positive, I'll be in a much better place. I have amazing support and I can't thank you all enough. I've faced so many fears in the last two years. Fears that I thought I would never challenge. Sometimes it's difficult to remember how many things I've accomplished when I'm focusing on all of the things I'm still facing. This year is already shaping up to be pretty epic. I have a ton of exciting opportunities on the horizon and I'm finally feeling ready to take it all on. I hope you stay with me through this journey. :)

My friend, Autumn Northcraft, photographed Laurin as well that day. Take a look at her work here! She's kind of amazeballs.
