“Let me start off by saying that this is my first attempt at writing a blog so bear with me. I can’t put into words how proud I am of Jill – my amazing girlfriend – for all of her accomplishments over the past (almost) two years that we have been together. Since we first started dating, I have always encouraged her to pursue her passion for photography. And all of the success she has had over the past couple years could not have happened to a more deserving person. Few people are more dedicated to their work than she is, and I know few people who work as hard as her. I say that after seeing the countless nights she has spent culling, editing, preparing, etc. Not to mention the many mornings I wake up, only to find that she has been editing in the dark so that I can sleep in (something that I definitely appreciate) or the usual Sunday during football season that consists of me watching NFL Red Zone – following my fantasy football team – as she sits on the couch next to me working on photography stuff (unlike myself, she apparently does not believe in the concept of Sundays being a day of rest). In the end though, she always makes a point of finding time for us to spend together (or at least pencils me into her calendar).
