Explorations

Posted on Oct 20, 2014

I love working with students new to photography who teach me how to see in unique ways. This weekend I went out with Annie Ward, who is 18 and has a new DSLR camera, to Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. Plants–the most patient subjects! We explored depth of field, pattern, light, and perspective.

Republica Dominicana

Posted on Oct 13, 2014

This summer I was a chaperone with St. Stephen’s Youth Mission Trip to the Dominican Republic. What did we do? Why did we go? What was the point? Watch this video:

I also created this fun, joyful video highlighting a 2 year-old Dominican girl, Jesuani, who mesmerized us. She showed us (for better or for worse) how to be unstoppable, how to believe in yourself.

Blessing of the Animals

Posted on Oct 8, 2014

Each year St. Stephen’s commemorates the Feast of St. Francis with a service blessing the animals.

1 Month

Posted on Sep 23, 2014

Last month I spent a few days with my twin nieces, who were just 1-month old! I had spent a lot of time with kids and babies, but not much time with newborns until then. It was a reality check of sleepiness nights and constant feedings, but also such a joy to witness them looking around, to feel their whole babies breath and sigh.

Here’s a short video celebrating the wonder of being so newly alive:

Twin Nieces

I became an aunt this summer! Welcome to the world, Charlotte and Maeve. I’m so grateful I got to spend a few days helping take care of these tiny, precious beings.
