I’m sitting here catching up on blogs, thinking about/missing Jenna (she’s been out of town the past week), and reflecting on everything we have going on. I’m not sure where this is headed, but I thought I’d jot a few things down.
People always ask me how I got into photography, and my answer is usually something along the lines of Well, when you love something, it’s sort of hard not to. And I do love it. (Although it often makes me feel like a little kid with a really expensive toy.) Never-the-less, through photography I have been extremely blessed – blessed personally, in my ability to bless others, and through the people I have been able to meet and share a little slice of life with. One group in particular – She Dances.
I have a burning desire to truly make a difference, to be a part of something larger than myself . There is so much going on outside my bubble, so much life going on that’s so much more significant than me. But it’s easy to forget that. I mentioned my friends at She Dances…they’re an amazing groups of folks trying to put a dent in the world, in the wrong, of human trafficking. I’ve yet to do anything ‘public’ for them, but I hope/pray to venture with them to Honduras to help tell their story through the pictures I can take. Photography can be an amazingly powerful tool, and I hope for the opportunity to share.
And so here I sit… Reflecting, thinking about the things to come, excited for the unknown possibilities that await. I don’t know what they all look like, but I’m forever grateful for you who I’ve had the privilege to work with so far.
