and the years will roll by...

I read this on Punam Bean's blog and had to share it.

This is a quote from a commencement speech given by Steve Jobs to the students at Stanford, class of 2005:

You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.

-Steve Jobs

As this year is wrapping up all I can say is I am so excited to see what the future holds~ as a photographer, friend and wife. I have a wonderful man I wake up beside each morning and get to share my days with. My husband is my best friend. I have family and friends that I really and truly love and am so thankful to have in my life. (They say your friends reflect who you are and if that is even half way true in my life, I would be overjoyed.) My friend and family are so giving, so full of life.. they make the world a better place with each breath they take... they are beauty in it's truest form. And what can I say about my work as a photographer? I have a (soon to be full time ) job that allows me to be me~ to be creative and to stretch and think as an individual and an artist. Photography allows me to capture the beauty around me and freeze memories in time. Could it get any better then this? I will know perhaps in a year.. maybe ten~ only God knows what lays ahead. Yet, even though the future is unclear I know this: if you aren't content with your life, don't settle. Never, ever settle. Because once you find it, you know.. and life becomes a glorious dance...

I am married to an amazing man named Ryan. He is the love of my life and my best friend. As of January 2008 I officially started my own photography business, Beloise Photography. I picked the name because it is something that doesn't exist.... something that i wanted to sum up into a word but couldn't. It is the smell of fresh cut grass and hide and seek in the dark. It is a new pair of fabulous shoes. It is fall and all its glory... starry summer nights. Apple cider and fresh picked flowers. Beloise is all that you taste, touch, see and love dearly. The smells that trigger childhood memory's. All your favorite things in one word. A song that speaks to your soul. Sublime happiness. A field of daisy's. Firefly's. Mistletoe. City lights. The smell of homemade cookies. The first snow.... Beloise is about cherishing life. Savoring the moments. Breathing deeply.... and just living...
