Twenty Seven

Van Gachnang 27 twenty seven birthday portrait

I turned 27 in November (on Thanksgiving!) and I always document my birthday with an annual portrait. This is the 8th year I’ve taken this photograph!

Being 26 held a lot of things for me, including personal growth, moving to a new state, having a wedding, and tons of other things. I’ll be honest- it’s hard to write this blog and not think about the year-end post I’m also drafting without repeating myself! So I’ll leave it at that. 26 was great and had its own set of challenges, and I hope 27 is even better with even more growth.

Thanks for sticking around this long, you guys. Check out my previous birthday portraits below (starting with baby 20 year old Van)!!

P.S. The word ‘twenty’ doesn’t even look like a real word anymore.
