Two thousand 18
I’ve always been unsure how to write words alongside images which only share a year in common. I suppose they also share a commonality in the fact that I took them, to be fair. But if I must write something (which I am unsure if I must), then I’d say this year was a rebirth. I stopped caring what others think and began caring more about others. I stopped controlling things and allowed life to unfold. I worked alongside Ben and Mads to create and host a creative’s camping adventure called Ramble. I released my expectations on who I thought I must be and allowed my circumstances to show me things I never knew I needed.
Vulnerability became a personal theme through a divorce that changed me profoundly. I let certain pains sharpen me where I could. While that might have been fresh knowledge for some, it had been some time before I publicly shared it. But the largest part of my healing took place in my new home of Asheville North Carolina, where I met a wonderful, generous, and talented woman, Christian.
I’m not sure about anything, and maybe we’re all living in a simulation, or maybe it’s all a very real reality… but I know it’s quite beautiful. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed taking them. Thank you to all the couples who invited me into their space to capture their moments. I love and appreciate you all.
