I am a marriage & family photographer based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. When I'm not editing your photographs, you can find me gardening with my boys or exploring the local hiking trails.
a place for inspiration
About a month ago Tracey Krick Photography and I were recruited by Melissa Engle Photography to join a day of mini sessions benefiting those suffering in Syria. This mini session day was one of several organized by photographers in the Lancaster County area (check this link if you would like to learn more). For these sessions, all that was asked was that a minimum of $50 was donated to an organization that was helping those affected by the Syrian war in Aleppo. As many of you know, this city has become a battleground and many innocent lives are being lost simply because they cannot escape.
My heart breaks for them. For how afraid they must be. For the pain they must feel in the midst of all that is happening.
I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to encourage those in my community to give towards this cause. It is my hope that more people would look outside of the comfort of their American home to those who are struggling and do something.
Thank you to these wonderful families who did just that <3
“Jesus replied and said, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him, and went away leaving him half dead. And by chance a priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion, and came to him and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn and took care of him. On the next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper and said, ‘Take care of him; and whatever more you spend, when I return I will repay you.’ Which of these three do you think proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell into the robbers’ hands?” And he said, “The one who showed mercy toward him.” Then Jesus said to him, “Go and do the same.”” Luke 10: 30-37
