This past June I was blessed with an amazing opportunity to serve alongside the organization ManUp and Go(www.manupandgo.org). On this trip we experience life in Korah Ethiopia, Jinja Uganda, Palasa Uganda, among many other cities and villages along the way. I decided I would share my experience through imagery on this website. You can head over to my blog (www.letstalktoughstuff.wordpress.com) to get the “words” of my experience as well. I hope this blesses you and opens eyes to the amazing world we live in. This was a missions trip, and we were blessed to work alongside many missionaries, ministries, organizations and children’s homes.
My lessons from this trip: God is everywhere, in the broken, in the beauty. It was a privilege to be a vessel for God’s love and hope. Stepping out of your comfort zone IS a beautiful thing, big things happen when we step out in faith. I left a part of my heart in Africa. I hope you enjoy.
The Konza did not disappoint! Wow Rylee, you are absolutely stunning! Your strength within is evident and I am humbled by the opportunity. Keep working hard and I hope you have the best senior year!
This girl is just stunning. What a beautiful day we had exploring Abilene. Thank you so much for the opportunity and I wish you the best senior year ever.
I was excited to explore a brand new(to me) location with Miss Hazel just outside of Wamego. What a gorgeous day, although the wind was a bit challenging, we made it work! Hazel I hope you had the best birthday, I love your big personality and those beautiful eyes. Thank you so much for trusting me with capturing your smiles, giggles and just you being you.
What a beautiful day for an engagement session. As I met these two, the one resounding thought I had was how laid back and relaxed they were. Not stressed or worried, not uneasy or anxious, just in love and excited to spend time together. I absolutely adored this session and I can’t wait for the wedding! These two are but a few years older than my oldest son. It made me realize how quickly life goes and how blessed we are to have every moment we have, AND I could potentially be looking for a wedding photographer in the near future!!
Thank you for the opportunity and I’ll see you next month!
