“You know that girl,
the one who is always smiling or thinking.
Who sweats the ocean
and leaves a trail of sand
wherever she goes.
The girl who always shows up with wet hair,
yet still looks darn good.
She’s not sun kissed, she kisses the sun.
She grew her own roses
before she was ever given one.
The girl with the cool scars and tan lines,
who isn’t afraid to laugh loud.
She always seems to smell like vacation
and has more passport stamps than shoes.
She’s a hugger and a fighter,
and can say so much,
without saying a word.
You know that girl
you always wanted to be?

Signs Of Light
A dear friend of mine lost his way a few years ago and there are so many things I wish I could’ve said to him before I lost him forever. Within the waves of emotion I felt that fall, I thought his light would never appear back into my life. But as I reminded myself of his love for life and of the goodness he saw in all of us, it was his light that lead me through.
This photo was pulled from a larger series of mine I completed during my final photography course at UGA, to portray lightness found in darkness.

My brother and music go hand in hand, and documenting his love for music will forever be one of my favorite moments to capture.

What do you get when 10 girls go to Asheville for the weekend? Endless chocolate cake, plenty of beer and a fake bachelorette party.
More than she was worried about the future, she was focused on making the most of every seemingly ordinary day by eagerly seeking out the light in everything.

One of my absolute favorite things is finding a random roll of film and getting it developed. Thanks to this lost but then found roll of film for taking me down memory lane this week.
