Day off excitement: The way a circle kisses a line

Confession time.  Despite a month filled with travel, nature, family time, good food, and killer photoshoots with dynamic folks, these photos showcase one of the finest hours of my last 30 days. It started as a day off, with no big plans (my favorite kind these days,) that took me adventuring...

The world of medical care is a place where I feel cushioned by gratitude. Since having critically ill sick children, and then going on to tell their story in photos, as well as those of other children, the hospital for me is a place of safety and community. For the second time,  I joined St....
