Pencils of Promise Part Three Day Four Welcome back to my Pencils of Promise trip day four and five. Part of what Pencils of Promise does in Laos and in the other countries that they help with is they offer a WASH program and TS (teacher support). Their WASH program is to really help the […]

Pencils of Promise Part Two Thank you for joining me back again to see and hear more about my trip from Laos. As a reminder, almost two years ago, the Rising Tide Society held an online summit in order to raise money to build a school with an organization called the Pencils of Promise. We […]

That means, she takes beautiful photos on both digital formats and film formats. (how cool!) We also have another thing in […]

This will be my eighth year as a Wedding Photographer and I could not be more excited about this launch. I’ve changed internet faces before but never like this.
