Daily Glimpses

So, um, things have been rather quiet around here lately. However, it’s not because I’ve stopped taking photos or looking for the beautiful and true. It’s just that in this season Instagram’s platform has been a bit more conducive to consistently capturing and sharing glimpses of such moments in my life. Like this blog, there’s not…

An Impromptu Session
