I first met Angie at a three-year-old’s costume party where we were surrounded by screaming kids hopped up on birthday cake and candy. In the midst of the chaos, she calmly explained how her husband had been away several months and was set to return home from his deployment in a couple of months.  Having lived in military communities my entire life, I quickly recognized the resilience and strength in Angie that I had seen in so many military spouses over the years. I was delighted and honored when she accepted my offer to document her husband’s homecoming.

  • Erin - Love all the emotion in these! You told a beautiful story with these photographs!ReplyCancel

Nile is one of the first people I met when we relocated to Grand Forks last year.  Our three-year-old daughters became instant friends at preschool and have been BFFs ever since.  Needless to say, I was delighted when Nile asked me to document the humor and love that came with having her extended family in town.

I recently had the amazing opportunity to be an audience member for Ashley Gilbertson’s Creative Live course on Street Photography. Not only was it a major fan girl moment for me who has been watching Creative Live courses for years, it was more importantly an extremely valuable learning experience for me to learn from Ash, a photojournalist with VII photo agency and a regular contributor to The New York Times. My main interest was to grow as a storyteller and push past my own person comfort zone, which certainly did not include street photography.  I have admired Ash’s work as a combat photojournalist since I first saw his image of a marine sliding down a banister of one of Saddam Hussein’s captured palaces. That image has always stayed with me, even before I knew who Ashley Gilbertson was or had any interest in photojournalism.  The truth is he makes images that make you feel something and tell a story, which is exactly why I chose his course.  I was honored to meet him and to learn from him, and on my final day in Seattle I stepped out of my comfort zone and onto the streets of Seattle with camera in hand.
