Photographing the world is my passion, my art, my worship, my joy, and my job. I am so blessed to be able to do what I LOVE for a living. Recently, Today Magazine, a Christian South African magazine, asked if they could feature me as their “artist of the month” and do an interview in their magazine with me. They asked questions about my art, but also what my heart is for raising awareness and impacting others with my photography. I hope you can read the article and, in doing so, get a better glimpse into my world of photography, work, and my heart.
After spending 6 months on a trip
around the world, the last three in Africa, my eyes have been open to the opportunities to help others less fortunate. My husband and I spent those 3 months working in a township called Red Hill, living amongst the Xhosa people. Yes, we lived in a “squatter camp” in a shack, and loved every moment of it… well, almost. We were able to help the people living there rebuild their homes after a huge fire that destroyed all of what meager possessions they had. Our team built 79 homes in 2 short months and witnessed changes in people that last a lifetime. Here are a couple images of the faces I saw on a daily basis. Unforgettable!
