My vision for my work
As I progress through my career, I find I am more and more drawn to exploring where photography intersects with faith, beauty, and suffering. I believe that beauty is important in the world as it is a reflection of our Creator, and is part of His character. My faith definitely impacts my work and I love contemplating concepts and ideas through the lens of my camera. I have a heart for those who are suffering and love photographing projects that allow me to be a voice for those who are suffering in some way.
Suffering and brokenness are common themes in my work. This comes from my own life experiences and how I have been impacted by walking through suffering and brokenness, and seeing the beauty that has come about in my own life as a result of these hard journeys.
The way I do this work is largely through personal projects that explore the above ideas in different ways.
I also love photographing cultures, places and people, and I believe this will always be a part of what I do.
I also occasionally do commissioned work for organizations and/or individuals. You can read more about that here.
A lot of the work I create ends up in books, as I have a deep love for books! I love that a book allows for a collection of images that tell a larger story than just one or two images can, and it is a lasting form that leaves a legacy. You can see the books I have created so far on my "Books and Prints" page. Click the button below to check them out. (Including a new children's book I wrote, called Pancakes & Pickles! Read more about my writing on the new Deep Soul Writing page!)
