2017 — my year in review

At the end of 2016, I wrote a blog post titled “2016 — my year in photographs.” I loved that post, and I look at it often. In a sense, that’s what this post is too. Instead, however, of choosing my favorite photographs, I’ve chosen some of my favorite moments.

This year, like any, was full of ups and downs. From travel to school to work, 2017 brought many experiences I was able to capture in photographs, but many, many more I wasn’t able to capture. I hope these do justice the experiences I encountered along my journey throughout this year.

As we move into 2018, I’m excited to take more photos and experience more of the world. But for now, I’m thankful for the ups and downs of 2017.
