Lately I catch myself wondering what in the world I'm doing with my life. 

I have a degree in psychology...because the plan was to be a marriage and family therapist.

But then I felt called to vocational ministry...so I went to seminary...and church ministry became the new plan. 

And now here I am, taking pictures for a living.

I've come to anticipate the common question (complete with a twinge of facial confusion): "So...what exactly is your plan then?"

Friends...I really have no idea. 

I just know that I love walking with people through their truest hours...hours of joy, hours of confusion, of mourning, of anticipation, of deep connection. I know that the place I'd always pick to be is right there in the thick of life with people...as those big, meaningful, scary, life-giving moments unfold. Because your story matters. Your love matters. It’s what makes you who you are. Whether you’re an over-the-moon-crazy-in-love-newly-engaged couple, a high school senior loving the adventure and possibility life is holding out, a mama joyfully awaiting the arrival of your sweet little one, an artist creating what you love, a family enamored with the happy chaos that is your life… your love is beautiful. It captures me. And I wanna capture it right back.

This is so. much. more. than a just a job to me. I believe in what I do.

I'm a planner--OCD and type-A to my core--so not having a 10-step 5-year plan is kinda nerve-wracking. But soooo. soo. utterly freeing. I've never been so free to adventure, explore, and create. To search out true, beautiful love and put it on display.

I have no idea where I'll be in 5 years...and it's kinda the best. #adventureforever
