About Me

Hello love!

I am a morning person. I love sunrises, coffee on the porch with a blanket and my bible. The smell of coffee alone sends surges of satisfaction through me. I try to rise at 5am to enjoy the quietness with my husband before he heads out for the day… oh yeah I am a wife and a mom of 4 so getting up ahead of them always makes for a smoother day.  I love hanging out with my kids. They make me laugh and entertain me most days. They are the best. I love looking at them and often my heart fills with awe and admiration that I was chosen for them to be mine. My husband is an answer to prayer and he is still kicking my butt into shape. I am so grateful for him. He makes my knees weak and my heart strong.  We met Feb 1oth 2014 and were married by Nov 28th 2014 {same year} I enjoy cooking and baking and Pass me the bread too because I can get down on some pastries and cinnamon twists (doughnuts) YUMMM. My daughters feels the same way. I love traveling, exploring new towns, good willing and antiquing. I get happy happy over bargains. You know…this is worth this and I paid this!! I am someone who enjoys deep conversations and desires to serve you in any way that I can. I want to be feminine and have girlie things but after 2 kids I am stuck with running shorts and yoga pants. Shopping trip please! I love adoption and my heart pricks in the direction of Orphan care. I love traveling. I have had the privilege of traveling all over and making photographs along the way. What I loved the most about it was spending time in babies homes and orphanages. The cause of the orphan is close to my heart and I want to fight to educate others and help support them as well as one day adopt my own little african. My heart is in Jinja. I went there last year and I dream of it often. A portion of every narrative collection goes towards adoption and orphan care, it’s called Echo. You can read it about it here.God has rescued me from my brokenness and made me whole. I love Him for that. I am drawn to stories of redemption and restoration mostly because of what He has done in my life.

 

I love the ocean, being near it, hearing it and swimming in it. The water fires me up. I love working to music that I can ignore yet inspires me, when I write it’s the civil wars. I love having nice things and using great shampoo. I love reading and being outside while enjoying a tasty beverage. I am also a huge huge lover of fruit and chips… I know what a contrast!

I love making much of the ordinary and photographing life as it happens. There is so much beauty in the mundane and in the routines of things that we are so busy living that we fail to stop and see. I want to see and that is what I want to photograph. I am a story teller. I speak in paragraphs, ask my hubs! I can’t seem to give one word answers easily. I love all kinds of stories. There are stories waiting to be told everywhere.

I love love and the beauty bound in lives lived and being joined together as one. Marriage is the beginning of one of the greatest narratives that you will ever write. You are beautiful and unique and are in the midst of a grand narrative whether you realize it or not. I am too. I hope we are able to stop and listen together.
