A HUGE thanks to all of my 2010 clients! It still blows my mind that I can pay my mortgage from photography.
Here’s to all that happened in 2010 and all the things to come in 2011!

Photographed in Auburn, Puyallup, Seattle, Tacoma, California, Hawaii, Luxembourg, & Haiti

  37. Have seen and heard about such an insect for the first time. I really like being aware of about different forms of insects and animals. The life cycle on the insect shared in here seems to become quite fascinating. Will appear forward to more such exciting posts.
