Met up with Ben Arment and crew as they discussed ideas and such for the Chicago event Story. They have some pretty cool things in store and it was exciting to hear all these gifted and creative hearts come together!
Through my eyes. Where I am. What I see. Today.
Spent my Labor Day weekend in Portland, Oregon with my mentor and good friend Kerri Kenyon. We had 3 very full days and I took a lot of pictures. Here are a few.
Took a couple pics today to bring more of an image to the vision of this great organization called Redeemed. Redeemed was created from a desire for every woman and teenage girl trapped in the sex trade industry to be restored to a place of hope, security, love, and dignity. They are doing great things!
I had the honor this past weekend, up in Minneapolis to be the Maid of Honor in my best friends wedding. I didn’t shoot the wedding but I did enjoy being apart of the weekend and capturing some fun moments.
Just got back from my mission in Jamaica. Port Maria/Galina. It was incredible…doing construction, tutoring, loving on kids and the old people, visiting homes, painting…i am exhausted, but ready to go back. ACE (American Caribbean Experience) is doing it right!
I am not the usual “nature” photographer, macro flower shots aren’t my thing. Today, was an exception. I had a brief opportunity to play hookie from doing work today and went to one of my favorite places that was on my way home. The Riverpark over by the 2nd Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee. I love being in nature, spent some time just meditating, praying and reading. I was ready to go, but felt that little voice telling me to stay till 11:30…weird, but i have learned that those hunches, nudges have always come of something, so i waited…about 15 minutes after 11, to my right I saw a family of geese, mom, dad and chicks. I ran to my car and grabbed my camera, and prayed that they would still be there. I saw this at Piedmont Park about 2 weeks ago and this time, for some reason it just brought joy to my heart, it was like a little, “I love you!” from the One who created everything. So i wanted to share one of my faves.
Great things: 1. Spending a day relaxing in the sun at Piedmont Park, on a school day. 2. Doing #1 with great company. I made a new friend today. Meet Kai, a 3 year old black lab. I found it quite ironic that he loves the water and his name means “ocean.”
