        • I like that you emphasized the importance of photographing keepsakes for “now” rather than always just at big life moments like weddings etc. Totally true! Thank you for sharing your Badlands photos, it is a totally different world than Vancouver Island here in BC. Keep up the great work and keeping it real by appreciating the moments that make up the daily. ReplyCancel
