It’s going on 5 months, and I still wish I had words big enough to express how I am feeling, even today. I still feel so lost and so deeply sad, but I don’t want to let my mother’s passing fade away without speaking up.
I wrote the following stream-of-consciousness on my Facebook a few days ago and I gave it some thought and decided that it should live here on my blog as well.
A year ago today, I shot Sia‘s wedding in Palm Springs. It was a day with wicked weather that started with heavy rain and lightning bolts that threatened flash floods through the desert resort town. It all seemed so sudden and strange at the time, but I suppose that is what I’ve come to understand about life.

I made Corey a snow globe for a present this last Christmas. A lot of outside forces made 2014 a difficult one for both of us to chew. I thought I would make a snow globe to acknowledge and pay homage to these darker days, a marker in time that we can look upon later in the future.
